Get to Know David

"I had a more unconventional career path prior to Tepper. After working for a Fortune 300 retail company in the supply chain sector, I moved to New Zealand for a year to help grow a startup CPG company. From there, I transitioned to San Francisco and worked for several years with startups, mostly in Fintech.

"Tepper appealed to me because of the small class size, the down-to-earth attitudes of my classmates, and the analytics-based approach to learning that is becoming so important in the 21st century. I enjoy backpacking, yoga, craft beer, concerts, and meeting amazing people from around the world."
