We asked the alumni celebrating a birthday today (December 18), "Where are you now?" Here's what they said:
Cody Chesneau MMS '14
I am currently living in Atlanta, GA. I work at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, the investment bank of SunTrust, as an IT Project Manager in Capital Markets. For the last four months, I have lead technical regulatory projects encompassing the entire corporate and investment bank. I am so glad that Fuqua prepared me for this amazing opportunity!
Wing-Kit Chu MBA '14
Right now I'm working for Amgen in Austin, TX, and enjoying the warm winter and lots of barbecue!
Ken Cowen '78, MBA '04
I still live in Norfolk, VA, with my wife, Karen BSN '78; two kids and three grandkids are in North and South Carolina. After 30 plus years in the ship repair business, I recently started my own consulting business, Norfolk Spreadsheet Company. I support many of my former co-workers, locally as well as across the county, with proposals, processes, and some pretty fancy spreadsheets. I am also teaching computer science, math, and engineering at the local community college.
Bill Dracos '91, MBA '99
I lead Emory University's office of Business Practice Improvement (BPI), the university's internal strategic consulting team. BPI operates as a management consulting practice, focused on improving efficiency and effectiveness, driving growth and innovation, as well as developing rigorous, disciplined, and analytical business professionals.

Bing Li MBA '01
I'm in Beijing, China, working for a private equity fund specialized in health care investment.
Ron Miao MBA '91
I've been in London since 2000. For the last 12 months, I've been working with a financial services start-up as COO trying to get off the launch pad. We have had a few false starts, but have yet to reach launch stage. It has been incredibly fun, but incredibly stressful. My two boys hold three passports: US, UK and Swiss!
Naveen Seshadri MBA '11
I currently work as a Senior Director at Sears Holdings Corporation in Chicago, where I run a start-up within the company called 'GameOn' which is an innovative, technology-driven business transformation initiative involving gamification, behavioral economics and customer & employee engagement.
