After graduation from the University of Michigan, I spent 8 years working in the automotive industry with global manufacturing companies. Entrepreneurship was my true passion, which led me back to Ann Arbor for the WMBA program.
Besides the lifelong friendship made, Ross provided me with the confidence to bet on myself. Shortly after completing the WMBA program, a friend in the cohort and I launched a search fund, seeking to identify a privately-held business to acquire, grow, and exit. While COVID forced us to shift from our initial plan, we were able to take over a family-owned staffing and recruiting firm in metro-Detroit. We are now the President and COO of the company, putting our MBA toolkit to the test on a daily basis.
