Mr. CPPIB Strategy
I started my career in Consulting at Deloitte where I worked in the Financial Services group. After two years at the firm, I transitioned to a Strategy role at the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) – made the jump to get more strategy experience. I have been working here for two years and want to get an MBA to transition to MBB.

Big Life Wins:
Getting into CPPIB (historically it has been very competitive to get in)! Leading from scratch the largest COVID strategy planning project at the firm. I have been leading it directly with the MD! I love strategy! Getting into Oxford! I am a first-generation student just finding my way… Oxford was a huge win for my confidence!
Post MBA Goal:
As you can probably tell, I am very passionate about strategy! Specifically as it relates to Financial Institutions (FI) (although strategy work in general is fun)…. my goal is to marry my experience in FI Consulting at Deloitte and my work in Strategy at CPPIB while using the MBA as a spring board for FI Strategy consulting at MBB!
