Pablo Luther ’86

Luther graduated summa cum laude with a dual MBA in marketing and finance from Wright State University and was inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma and Alpha Mu Alpha honor societies. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Mumbai in India, where he was the class valedictorian.

He came to Wright State from India in 1983 with the proverbial handful of dollars but full of excitement for his new life. He was a teaching assistant at Wright State, drove the Disability Services student transport bus and worked various odd jobs to sustain himself through college.

He is immensely appreciative of the staff, faculty and classmates for all the support he received in those formative years and believes his education and experiences at Wright State have had a positive influence on his trajectory.

Luther met his wife, Sherri, who is also a senior executive in Silicon Valley, at Wright State while they were both students. They have been married 37 years and have three grown children: twin sons and a daughter. He loves to travel, especially with family, and has recently learned how to make beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon wines in his Napa Valley vineyard.
