What I'm doing now

I am a Manager in Corporate Finance for E.ON which I started in January 2017.

My best Lancaster memory

What I really enjoyed at Lancaster was the global student body and seeing all the different views and experiences coming together. I enjoyed working alongside others to see how to excel in a field of study. Additionally, I loved campus where I was surrounded by the beautiful landscape and proximity to the Lake District which was always great for a day trip.

Other than that, of course, there were all the nights in the Grad Bar with my friends from Grad College - especially when there was live music from one of the many great bands!

What Lancaster means to me

Lancaster University and particularly the Management School equipped me with the right skills to quickly secure my job of choice and put me on an excellent path for a global career in finance. Therefore, I am very thankful for the great staff and their dedication to teaching as well as for my classmates and the awesome time not only working and studying together, but becoming real friends!

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

With alumni spread across the globe it just felt natural to start getting in touch with other alumni in the area.
