They're my school  •  Co-founder/CEO, Five. Previous: Barclays (automated FICC strategies), Wharton
Aside from his knowledge base (he's excellent with financial valuations and has deep experience with negotiations) he is a fantastic strateg ... ic thinker. Most of our classmates would agree with this and often sought his consultation on career decisions. I think this stems from a great intuition for other peoples emotions and preferences - like a chess grand master, always a couple moves ahead.
