She supports the Cultivation Capital portfolio as a board member at Healthy Bytes, board observer at ImageMoverMD, and former board observer at NarrativeDx before its acquisition in 2020. 

Hoffman

In addition to her work at Cultivation Capital, Hoffman is active in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, serving as co-chair of the board at the St. Louis Equity in Entrepreneurship Collective and an advisory council member at Arch Grants. In addition, one can often find her on the Washington University campus, serving as an investor in residence at the Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship and a director of the Holekamp Seed Fund.

Ryan Hwang, BSBA ’09

Founder, Schoology

Hwang

Ryan Hwang graduated from Washington University in 2009 with a BSBA degree in marketing and international business. At WashU, alongside classmates Tim Trinidad and Jeremy Friedman, Hwang founded Schoology as an online learning platform focused on helping K-12 schools continue to advance what’s possible in education. Hwang was a key leader on the product management team. He managed a team of product managers and oversaw product strategy and roadmap for Schoology’s core product, the learning management system (LMS).

By 2019, Schoology had reached more than 20 million students and become the leading LMS provider, leading to its acquisition by PowerSchool. At PowerSchool, Hwang served as director of product management, where he continued to oversee product strategy and roadmap for Schoology, leading to unprecedented growth throughout 2020.

Philip Lewis, BSBA ’07

Partner, Fulcrum Equity Partners

After graduating from Olin, Philip Lewis accepted a position with A.G. Edwards & Sons in St. Louis.  The opportunity proved to be a brief one when Wachovia acquired A.G. Edwards in the ensuing months and opted not to retain recent hires. His next opportunity soon arose in Atlanta, where a start-up growth equity fund, Fulcrum Equity Partners, chose Lewis to be its first hire. Lewis began as an analyst during the initial fundraising, and he is now principal, leading new investments, sitting on multiple boards, and helping source investment opportunities.

Lewis

Lewis also served as CFO of a portfolio company, RivalHealth, from 2015-2017, ultimately guiding the company through a merger and sitting on the new company’s board.

Lewis is deeply involved in Atlanta’s professional and nonprofit communities. He is on the leadership council for Year Up! Atlanta, a nonprofit focused on closing the opportunity gap for underserved young adults through professional skills development, classroom learning and internships. He previously chaired the steering committee of the NextWave Society at the Georgia Aquarium, focusing on raising awareness and funds for environmental research and conservation. In the professional community, Lewis serves on the board of directors and selection committee for Venture Atlanta, the largest venture capital conference in the Southeast. He chaired the 10th anniversary Venture Atlanta conference in 2017. He also serves on the board of the Center for Entrepreneurship & Development in North Carolina. Lewis previously was on the board of the corporate development society for the Technology Association of Georgia, founded the Young Southern Capital Group (Atlanta’s largest community of young investment professionals), and he served multiple years on the selection committee for the Technology Association of Georgia’s Top 10/40 Most Innovative Company awards. 

Tim Trinidad, BS ’09, BSBA ’09

Founder, Schoology

Trinidad

Tim Trinidad joined Washington University as an undergraduate freshman in 2005. During that time, he participated as a member of The Washington University Amateurs a cappella group, the WUSauce salsa team, the Orientation Executive Board, the Dance Marathon Executive Board, and Sigma Nu Fraternity. In addition, he served as webmaster for several university organizations, to which he credits his start in web development and web design. Trinidad graduated cum laude in 2009 with majors in entrepreneurship and computer science.

With the help of The Hatchery course taught by Cliff Holekamp, Trinidad and co-founders Ryan Hwang and Jeremy Friedman refined the Schoology business plan and pitch deck (the original versions of which are still available to see at Olin). Schoology soon received angel funding, at which point the team moved to New York City and grew to over 150 employees with more than 2000 enterprise customers in more than 100 countries. Since then, the founders were recognized by Forbes‘ 30 Under 30 in Education.

During his tenure at Schoology, Trinidad has built a team and infrastructure that has scaled to more than 18 million users worldwide. Through his leadership, Schoology has developed a highly scalable and available infrastructure, an architecture that supports agile development methods and continuous deployment, and a world-class engineering organization. In November 2019, Schoology was acquired by PowerSchool, where Trinidad continues to work on the Schoology platform as a senior principal software architect.




These Olin Business School emerging leaders will be honored at a luncheon on April 13. They’re innovators, dedicated entrepreneurs, and benefactors.

Jessica Fischer, CPA, BSBA ’06, MSBA ’06

Jessica Fischer

Jessica Fischer

Group Vice President/Deputy Treasurer/Charter Communications/St. Louis

Jessica Fischer’s four-year path to both a BSBA and an MSBA at Olin Business School set the stage for her steady rise during her 11-year tenure at EY and to her current role heading up treasury, tax, and risk management at Charter Communications.

Olin’s managerial economics program provided Fischer with the strategic thinking and negotiation skills that set her apart at EY. On a rotation with EY’s National Tax Group, Fischer developed a partnership taxation specialty and became the lead tax M&A adviser to large manufacturing, telecommunications, and media and entertainment clients on their partnership transactions. She was promoted to partner in 2016.

With this accomplishment to her credit, Fischer was ready for a new challenge. In May 2017, she joined Charter Communications as deputy treasurer.

Fischer, who is grateful for the generous support of scholarship donors that made it possible for her to attend Olin, is committed to paying that forward as a member of the Eliot Benefactor Committee. Her community activities include serving on the Missouri Botanical Garden Corporate Council in 2015 and 2016.

Jeff Platt, BSBA ’06

Jeff Platt

Jeff Platt

CEO/Sky Zone Franchise Group/Los Angeles

Jeff Platt took the lessons taught in his entrepreneurship class at Olin Business School to heart. After sounding out a group of St. Louis investors as part of the coursework, in 2006 he opened a second location for Sky Zone—an indoor trampoline park that his dad had launched in Las Vegas two years earlier. The Chesterfield, Missouri, park grossed $400,000 in its first seven weeks, leading Platt to open a third park in Sacramento in 2008 and to begin franchising the business the following year.

As Sky Zone’s president and CEO since 2011, Platt has spearheaded the effort to expand the franchise into a global brand. When Platt did a stint on Undercover Boss in 2013, he was the youngest CEO to ever appear on the reality TV show.

In 2014, Sky Zone was ranked No. 152 on the Inc. magazine 5000 List; in 2015, Forbes magazine ranked the company No. 55 on its list of America’s Most Promising Companies. Today, revenues at the more than 180 Sky Zone locations across nine countries exceed $300 million.

Mark C. Pydynowski, BSBA ’04

Mark Pydynowski

Mark Pydynowski

Senior Director/New Product Development/Experian/Austin

When Mark Pydynowski, BSBA ’04, fresh out of Olin Business School, was among the 10 applicants chosen for Gallup Consulting’s Emerging Leaders Program—from a field of 300—it was clear he was someone to watch. But Pydynowski scored an even bigger “wow” the following year when he leveraged his $50,000 award for the Olin Cup Business Plan Competition into $5 million to support SOMARK Innovations, the life science tools firm he founded in 2005 that was acquired six years later.

After five years at Capital One as senior manager and then director of new product development, in 2017 Pydynowski joined Experian, where he leads the team developing identity-management, credit-management, and fraud-detection products.

These professional achievements have not prevented Pydynowski from giving back to his alma mater. His blog, MondayKarma.com, helps current students at Washington University learn how to land their first job. Last year, he hosted the annual dinner for WashU alumni and parents in the San Francisco area. And in 2014, he gave the keynote address at Olin Business School’s commencement. He also was a speaker at the 2014 Olin Cup Awards Ceremony and moderated the Washington University Club of San Francisco’s IdeaBounce Competition in 2012-14.

Amanda Signorelli, BSBA ’13

Amanda Signorelli

Amanda Signorelli

CEO/Techweek/Chicago

Amanda Signorelli has been on a meteoric trajectory since graduating from Olin Business School with a bachelor’s degree in international business and marketing in 2013. On graduation, she joined McKinsey & Company as a business analyst, completing a two-year rotation. Then, in April 2015, she left McKinsey to join a young business, Techweek, as director of business development.

An international tech festival and media platform in nine markets, Techweek partners with tech leaders, corporations, and the community to build a unique experience for investors, entrepreneurs, and “hero companies”―high-growth businesses that achieve a substantial and sustainable impact and incubate talent, ideas, and, most importantly, spinoffs.

Signorelli’s responsibilities at Techweek quickly expanded to include the operations for the company’s National Startup Competition. Then, she was promoted in quick succession to head of content and operations and to CEO in 2016. Under Signorelli’s leadership, Techweek has expanded to three more cities, extending its North American reach to more than 40,000 people.

In addition to her responsibilities at Techweek, Signorelli owns and operates a 60-year-old family business in Las Vegas, her hometown.




In today’s ever-changing business world, Olin graduates must be thought leaders who function swiftly and strategically, making an impact in their organizations and beyond early in their careers. Our amazing alumni are up for the challenge, which is why we are proud to honor a handful of recently graduated alumni with our Emerging Leaders Awards (A David R. Calhoun Memorial Lecture).

This year’s Emerging Leaders will be honored on April 20 from 4:30-7 p.m. Please join us at Celebration Weekend, April 20-23 to celebrate Olin’s Centennial and accomplished alumni.

Arvan Chan

Arvan Chan

Arvan S. Chan, MBA ’09/MHA ’09

Vice President / International Markets / Centene Corporation / St. Louis
Though Arvan Chan’s graduate education and career placed him squarely in St. Louis by the age of 35, his influence has been felt around the globe. Since 2014, the 10-year veteran of Centene Corporation serves as the company’s vice president of international markets, where he manages and develops several unique international businesses.

For example, Chan helped orchestrate Centene’s investment in Ribera Salud SA, a Spanish company, and The Practice Group, an English company, three years ago. Chan currently sits on the boards for both organizations, which provide health care services under their respective country’s National Health Services.

As an active community member, Chan serves on the board of directors for St. Louis Effort for AIDS, which provides services to individuals who are affected by HIV; and the International Institute of St. Louis, which serves refugees and immigrants in the region. His involvement with professional organizations around the country has placed him on multiple global health task force teams, and he has spoken several times at the World Economic Forum.

In January, the St. Louis Business Journal named Chan to its list of “40 under 40” rising stars who are shaping the future of business in the region.

Chuck Cohn

Chuck Cohn

Chuck K. Cohn, BSBA ’08

Founder and CEO / Varsity Tutors / St. Louis
After working nights and weekends to get his startup company off the ground, Chuck Cohn scored with a $57 million investment from the likes of musician Adam Levine and Technology Crossover Ventures. Today, Cohn’s Varsity Tutors employs 400 people full-time and contracts with 25,000 private tutors who operate on his platform.

Varsity Tutors is a live learning platform that connects students and professionals with personalized instruction to achieve any goal. Cohn founded the company in a Washington University “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” course in 2007.

The young CEO has taken Varsity Tutors, now the market leader, from on-campus startup to more than one million hours of live instruction.

Cohn bootstrapped the company while working as an investment banker at Wachovia/Wells Fargo, and later as a venture capitalist at Ascension Ventures. He focused on building a robust technology system that would allow Varsity Tutors to connect students with exceptional tutors in person, online, and on mobile devices at both a scale and price point that had never been accomplished before.

Cohn serves as an advisor to local startups and is an active participant in the St. Louis startup ecosystem. He is an avid writer on entrepreneurship and education, authoring recurring columns for Forbes and Entrepreneur. Additionally, he is a member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) and the Washington University Skandalaris Center National Council.

James Mourey

James Mourey

James A. Mourey, PhD, BSBA ’05

Assistant Professor of Marketing / DePaul University / Chicago
When Jim Mourey began his undergraduate career at Washington University as a first-generation college student, he thought finance and accounting should be his path. However, a lifetime of creative writing, performing, and singing wouldn’t stand for it. Marketing was his passion. Besides, everyone knows what happens to “creative” accountants.

After he poured himself into his undergraduate coursework (4.0, summa cum laude), serving as a residence hall advisor, and singing in the all-male a cappella group The Stereotypes, the ink was barely dry on his diploma when one of his professors pulled him aside to discuss pursuing a doctorate.

Today, after receiving field-wide and university recognition for his dissertation at the University of Michigan, as well as achieving a 5.0/5.0 teaching evaluation, Mourey is now an assistant professor of marketing at DePaul University in Chicago.

Before earning his doctorate, Mourey led the research division for a Los Angeles-based C-suite marketing and management consultancy. Since then, he’s coauthored a New York Times bestseller and written two consumer-oriented books on how we shop: Urge: Why You Really Want What You Want and Fusion: A Modern How-To Guide for Integrated Marketing Strategy. Mourey also serves as a visiting professor in Paris and takes study abroad groups to France to focus on luxury marketing.

Outside of teaching, Mourey serves on the board for Creative Opportunities Unlimited, an international nonprofit bringing creative education to children. He is also musical director for The Uptones, a Chicago-based singing group, and hones his improv and comedic writing skills at the world-renowned Second City.

JD Ross

JD Ross

JD Ross, BSBA ’12

Cofounder / Opendoor / San Francisco
JD Ross began his first two companies as an undergraduate. Now, he is the cofounder of a company that has raised more than $310 million in venture capital and is turning the real estate industry on its ear.

Opendoor, founded in 2014 with legendary investor and operator Keith Rabois and Trulia executive Eric Wu, purchases homes directly from the seller, unlocking the seller’s economic mobility and bringing peace of mind to home sellers throughout the process. The startup has been featured in countless publications. Real estate industry publisher Inman named Opendoor its most innovative real estate company. And Ross himself was featured in Forbes’ “30 under 30” list for consumer technology.

A serial entrepreneur, Ross started early as a freshman at Olin. UTrucking provided storage to thousands of students at Washington University, and Fresh Prints offered custom apparel for tens of thousands of students across the country. Those experiences taught Ross the value of moving quickly and starting and ending with the customer, and the importance of hiring and coaching a talented team.

After graduation, Ross moved to San Francisco as the first product manager at financial technology startup Addepar, scaling the team from five to more than 80 employees and bringing more than $100 billion onto the platform as the company’s vice president for product.

Meghan Winegrad

Meghan Winegrad

Meghan O’Meara Winegrad, MBA ’06

Senior Director / Product Management / Express Scripts / St. Louis
With deep experience as a business builder, change agent, and turnaround artist at Fortune 200 companies, Winegrad is about to apply her skills to a new, even more exciting endeavor: entrepreneurship.

Her corporate career has prepared Winegrad for her next chapter, one she explores and broadcasts publicly on her website, Six Months to Startup. There, Winegrad shares her experiences, adventures, and lessons learned along the path to identifying and pursuing her entrepreneurial dreams.

Winegrad’s past experience in communications, marketing, brand management, and healthcare strategy will certainly pave the way for her future success.

While at General Mills, she elevated Hamburger Helper to new heights through an unlikely partnership with Beyoncé and restored growth to Fruit Roll-Ups with profitable line extensions. She also helped grow the General Mills portfolio by exploring new business models and brands in explosive growth categories, including healthy lifestyle, weight management, and beauty.

Then, at Express Scripts, her work inside the Lab, the company’s hub of innovation and thought leadership, yielded new solutions to solve for some of the most pressing pain points in healthcare, enhance patients’ clinical outcomes, and save clients money.

As Winegrad crafts her transition from corporate intrapreneur to startup entrepreneur, she remains a committed community leader. She volunteers on the Olin Alumni Board and just recently wrapped up a two-year term as co-chair for the Olin Eliot Society. In addition, she advocates for children with life-threatening medical conditions by supporting the Teal Pumpkin Project and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
