We asked the alumni celebrating a birthday today (April 21), "Where are you now?" Here's what they said:
Joel Barone MBA '11
I am finishing up my last rotation working as a Sr. Manager at Nissan North America in Nashville. My wife, Trisha, and I are getting ready to celebrate our 10th anniversary and our four kids, Colby (8), Delaney (6), Jett (4) and Trigg (2) are all loving life in the Music City.
Michael Calfee MBA '12
I'm V-P Finance & IT for Dawn Foods International based in Amsterdam and have finance and IT responsibility for Europe, Latin America and Africa/Middle East/Asia Pacific.
Andrea Carpenter MBA '92
I'm in Chapel Hill and going on my 11th year with the Institute for Defense and Business (IDB). As VP, Finance and Adminstration of this education and research organization, I head up the components of the IDB's infrastructure. Robert and I live just outside of Chapel Hill and are working on several landscaping projects and planning some travel (mostly domestic this year).
Jose Manuel Luque MBA '00
Currently I am in my home country. I work for Sodexo Benefits & Rewards as a Commercial Manager.
Gonzalo Rivero MBA '07
At this time, I am a happy father of a very lively two-year-old girl (Pia) and husband to an active wife (Maria), and back in Mexico City. I am the Commercial Operations Director for a pharmaceutical company in Mexico. As ComOps Director, and before as a consultant, I have faced very diverse problems for which I thank my broad Fuqua education. I count as my closest friends those from Fuqua and Mexico in particular, while I look forward to my trips, one coming up in May to NY, to see the rest of the Fuqua clan.
Aravind Sampath MBA '15
I currently live in Ashburn, VA with my wife and daughter. I am the Co-Founder and Chief Business Development Officer at Cricking, a fan engagement and analytics sports company. At Cricking, I primarily focus on business strategy, growth marketing, fundraising, and investor relations.
Eelco Spoelder MBA '04
I enjoyed my Duke time so much. After many years in Germany, I am now just moving to Paris, France. Stay in touch!
Kevin Tam MMS '12
After living/working in Texas for a bit, I made my way back to North Carolina. I am currently working in sales finance at Aviat Networks, a global telecom company. Jean Gan '12, MMS ''13 and I recently purchased our first house together in Southwest Durham, and we are living with our two Collie dogs, Sheldon and Guinness.
