Julian B. Emerson, Beta `80
Julian B. Emerson, B`80, currently lives in Columbia, South Carolina where he is Regional Head of Sales at Aetna. Always dapper and polite, a true Gentleman in the finest tradition of Chi Psi, Julian finds humor and humanity in the foibles of human events, and his colorful, animated story-telling uncovers parables in simple acts. People want to be in his company, and he brings the best out in others. The consummate host, quietly generous, he enjoys gathering people together to share each other’s company and the finer things in life. Clear to those who know him best is his faith: faith in his maker, his family, humanity, and the ideals of the Fraternity.
Brother Emerson has been a fraternity leader since his early days at the University of South Carolina. Active in the University IFC, he went on to serve Central Office as Alpha Visitor from 1981-1983. While on staff, Emerson was incredibly instrumental in rebuilding Alpha Theta Delta from its dismal state at the time to one of our strongest Alphas as it remains today.
Always the loyal alumni to his own Alpha Beta, Brother Emerson was central in the efforts to getting the Alpha’s new grand Lodge Built, providing the Alpha with leadership that has seen them through difficult times and ensuring their success and prosperity.
In addition to his current national role as Chairman of the Board of Trustees for The Chi Psi Educational Trust, Brother Emerson formerly served two terms on the Chi Psi Executive Council. In total, Emerson has been a key player in fraternal affairs for more than three decades.
