Get to Know Zachary

"I graduated Washington University in St. Louis with a chemical engineering degree, and spent the first seven years of my career with Emerson Electric across multiple business units. I started as an automation engineer, working in a major refinery outside of Chicago, and then moved to Emerson's air conditioning business as a product manager, where I helped Emerson to acquire a clean-tech startup.

"I chose the Tepper School for its small class size, inclusive culture, and its strong energy program. (Ask me about the Energy Business Track!) Post the Tepper School, I am planning to enter consulting, with an eventual focus on the energy sector. Outside of classes, I enjoy the outdoors (hiking, skiing, camping), collecting vinyl records, talking about anything related to energy, and I also enjoy Pittsburgh's craft beer scene."
