Candidate:

Mr. PE Social Impact

About Me:

I’m a senior financial analyst at a PE social impact real estate company. It’s a very niche industry and I love it. I’m passionate about social impact, real estate, and finance. Through my experience, I have learned how affordable/workforce housing, job creation, and entrepreneurship can be realistic in low-income communities. My passion for social impact real estate stems from growing up in an inner-city low-income neighborhood, being a first-gen high school graduate, and being raised in a single-parent household.

Details:

Undergrad School: Roosevelt University

Undergrad Major: Accounting

GPA: 3.51

GMAT: Waived

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: Black or African American

Extracurriculars: Program Director of a college prep nonprofit

Work History:

Title: Financial Analyst

Industry: CPG

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 11 mos

Big Life Wins:

Through my job, I implemented a social impact real estate accelerator that has helped 120+ residents learn real estate development and gain access to our loan program to acquire and rehab distressed homes within their community. Also, I started a social impact real estate company that I want to scale after b-school. Lastly, I received promotions at both companies.

Post MBA Goal:

My long term goal is to start a private equity social impact real estate firm in my hometown (Chicago). I believe b-school will allow me to make connections and obtain the resources needed to raise money for a real estate fund.

    Hi Mr. PE Social Impact! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant.
