We asked the alumni celebrating a birthday today (March 20), "Where are you now?" Here's what they said:
Brian Hoard, Daytime MBA 2007
I am a Director at PwC (via the acquisition of PRTM Management Consultants), where I lead the Semiconductor Product Innovation and Development Team and am the thought leader on high-tech pricing management. I live in Austin, TX, with my wife, Laura, and daughter, Audrey.
Kathleen (Nelson) Huffman, Daytime MBA 1975
I'm living in Columbia, MD, and married to Byron L. Huffman JD '76. I'm working part-time for my husband's law firm and am the volunteer treasurer at St. Mark's Highland, MD and regional travel soccer registrar.
Patrick Kielty, MMS 2012
I am a first-year PhD student in Accounting at The University of Florida.
Randy Schiff, Daytime MBA 1985
I'm living in Atlanta and running CimpliFix, a trade show booth staff training company (www.CimpliFix.com); Randy Schiff Photography (www.randyschiff.com); and providing business advice, content development and photography to my wife's sideline business in accessory clothing and vintage jewelry design (www.vintagebycathy.com).
David Spira, Daytime MBA 1997
Since 1997, I have worked 10 years for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Paris, France, met my wife Agnès in 2004, married her in November 2006. When I met her in 2004, we realized during 1996 she was a Teaching Assistant in French at UNC at Chapel Hill, and we never met when I was living in Durham! We have two wonderful daughters, Victoria, born in December 2007, and Anouk, born in September 2009. We live in Paris. In April 2006, I bought a consulting and accounting firm specialized in assisting foreign groups in setting up and managing business entities in France. I feel my personal and professional life is a success, and I would like to tell you how grateful I am to have learned so much at Fuqua. I still use a lot of what I learned more than 15 years ago!
