Geoffrey Picard was only selected as an alternate to the 1964 rowing team but he was moved into the four shell when [Phil Durbrow] became ill and collapsed after the first heat. Picard, rowing with a completely new crew and in a completely different style, adapted well enough to help the four win a bronze medal. Picard was a student at Harvard in 1964 and eventually earned an M.B.A. from that school. While there he rowed all four years, helping the Crimson win the Eastern Sprints in 1964 and 1965 and beating Yale every year. After earning his M.B.A. he joined the investment banking world with the firm of Morgan Stanley & Co., where he later became a partner and vice-president. Picard specialized in building Asian markets, and was a co-founder and managing director of Asia Pacific Securities. He was a member of the board of advisers to the chairman of the Securities and Futures Commission, and in that role helped draft the securities law for the People's Republic of China.
