Aishwarya Balaji

President

Hi, I'm Aishwarya! After an undergrad and master's in Mechanical Engineering, I worked for six years for a large industrial manufacturing company in a variety of engineering roles. During this time, I spent time in the U.S. Midwest, India, and Africa. I came to Tepper to gain a holistic understanding of business, hoping to focus in Strategy, Organizational Behavior and Operations. The consulting club has been invaluable in helping me learn more about the consulting industry, its varied offerings and prep for the recruiting process. I'm inspired to pay it forward to help others realize their career aspirations.

VP of Finance

Hi, I'm Corey! I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Industrial Engineering. Before Tepper, I was working in business and corporate strategy in the chemicals and then engineered metals industries. I love to be involved and am happy to serve as the VP of Finance for Tepper Consulting Club as well as the President of Out&Allied.

Hi, I'm Chris! I'm originally from Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from Notre Dame with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Before Tepper, I spent six years in a series of engineering roles at Fiat Chrysler. Here at Tepper, I'm focusing on concentrations in Strategy, Finance, and Operations Management. The Consulting Club has been instrumental to me in preparation for recruiting and transitioning to consulting, and I'm excited to help pass that on to others.

Before Tepper, I worked for five years in PepsiCo in multiple Finance roles. Also, worked in Tyson Foods and Eli Lilly for shorter periods. I'm happy to be part of Tepper Consulting Club as a board member and of Latin America Business Club as President, both invaluable resources in my transition to consulting and overall MBA experience.

 

Michael Greene

VP of Professional Development

Hi, I'm Michael! Prior to Tepper, I served in the Army for six years as an armor officer. I spent the first four years of my Army career in Europe, working closely with our Eastern European NATO allies. Subsequently, I spent the last two years as an Officer Candidate School Instructor, teaching leadership, planning, and communication. After transitioning from the Army, I became interested in consulting for the opportunity to work across industries and functions. I am excited to join the TCC board to help others make a successful transition from whatever their past experience was to their next chapter!

Hi, I'm Jake! I am originally from Ithaca, New York, and earned two undergraduate majors in Entrepreneurship and Marketing from Syracuse University. I was a consultant with IBM Global Business Services for five years prior to attending Tepper. I worked on digital transformation, process design, and change management projects in approximately ten industries. I hope to continue my consulting journey after Tepper, and I look forward to helping prospective consultants navigate this exciting journey.
