Get to Know Brendan

"Prior to attending Tepper, I served seven years as a logistics officer in the U.S. Army. My military journey took me throughout the country and the world, serving in Virginia, Texas, Georgia, and even Croatia and the European Baltic states. As an officer in the Army, I gained valuable leadership experience while providing logistics optimization solutions for my unit.

"As I made the decision to transition out of the military, I chose Tepper for its reputation as a leader in the field of data analytics and how to derive business decisions based on that analysis. I knew Tepper's rigorous curriculum would complement my background in operations, and in my short time here, I can safely say the program has exceeded my already high expectations!

"A bit more about me: I love to play guitar, write music, cook barbecue (smoked brisket!), and enjoy a strong sports culture. Pittsburgh is an excellent city to supplement my hobbies!"
