Liz Hay

President

Hi I'm Liz. After my graduation from Wash U in St Louis, I have spent the last six years working in financial services in New York City. During my time, I have worked in financial research, co-founding a product unit in North America, as well as worked in asset management on mutual funds and international ESG equity portfolios. I came to Tepper to build on my business acumen and bolster my analytical skills. I am pursuing the business analytics track and concentrations in strategy, finance, and business and technology. The consulting club has been key to introducing me to the consulting world, while also effectively preparing me throughout the recruiting process. My goal is to continue the legacy of my predecessors by paying it forward to set up future classes for success.

Nick Hu

VP Strategic Planning

Hi, my name is Nick and I am an international student from Canada. I started my career in digital marketing and worked at a boutique consulting firm before joining Tepper MBA. I hope to continue with a career in consulting post-MBA focusing on marketing strategy. The Tepper Consulting Club has helped me tremendously with my recruiting process and I am excited to carry that tradition forward. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

Hi, I’m Zach! I started my career as a Chemical Engineer in refinery automation systems for a large industrial company. After a few years, I moved into the HVAC space where I was part of the acquisition and commercialization team for a cleantech startup. I came to Tepper to burnish my leadership communication, take a deep dive into the energy industry, and grow my strategic mindset. The consulting club enabled my successful recruiting process, and I can not wait to give back to the next class of Tepper Students. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out!

My concentrations include Strategy and Operations Management. I plan to transition to consulting after my MBA and the consulting club has been instrumental in my recruiting efforts. As part of the club board, I focus on professional development for behavioral prep, networking, and office hours.

Taylor Tear

VP Professional Development

Hi, my name is Taylor and I went to undergrad across the street from Tepper at the University of Pittsburgh, where I studied Economics, Political Science, and African Studies. After graduation, I moved to New York City where I worked for three years as a corporate banking analyst for a large international bank. I came to Tepper keen on building a more well-rounded understanding of business and transitioning to consulting. TCC has provided immense support in helping me realize that goal, and I'm motivated by the opportunity pay forward my own experiences to help my classmates and new students on their own career journeys.

Hi, I'm Jesse! After graduating with undergraduate degrees in Accounting and Finance, I started my career in the Risk Consulting practice of a large accounting and consulting firm with a focus on the financial services industry. I am a part-time student and decided to pursue an MBA at Tepper to strengthen my analytical skills and learn more about corporate and business strategy in order to facilitate a switch into strategy consulting. I have enjoyed working with TCC over the last year and look forward to sharing my experience and insight into the consulting industry with other Tepper students.

Post graduating with a B.Sc in Bioengineering, I worked for eight years in the Healthcare industry where I held various roles in Supply Chain, Engineering and Program Management. I have also lived in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. I came to Tepper to understand business unit interconnectivity through a focus on Marketing, Strategy and Operations Research. I chose leadership within the Black Business Association & African Business Collective to drive minority engagement and recruitment in business, not only on campus but also within the broader Pittsburgh community. I have gained invaluable insights through the Tepper Consulting Club over the past year & I look forward to helping others achieve their full potential.
