He earned his MBA from the Pamplin School of Business at Virginia Tech, with a concentration in management and finance.
While working his way up through the ranks to store management he directly supported 20 new store openings. His MCC roles are threefold: as an alumnus, an MCC Foundation Director and the college’s newest trustee.
