VP Communications

Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Meridith brought to Canada a passion for product, people and process. Prior to Rotman, she was a product development engineer for a flexible packaging manufacturing company in the US and could always be found in the office or “on the floor”, searching for the secrets to manufacturing and operational success. At Rotman, she is enjoying her exploration of the interfaces between human-centered design, technology and operations, and tying it all back to her past life as an engineer.

ROMA has allowed me to get out in the field, walk the floor, and learn new skills, all while becoming part of a close-knit family.

Arman Rasekh

VP  FinanceArman

Hello! I love camping, canoeing, droning, and some snowboarding. Prior to starting the MBA program, I got my Professional Engineer designation and practiced as an energy systems consultant and project manager, serving public and private clients. I was the key point of contact for clients while leading 10-15 projects every year. I volunteer as a Government Liaison Representative with the Professional Engineers Ontario. I also completed some coursework in Germany at WHU Otto School of Management right after first year of the NBA. Talk to me about anything NBA-related.

What do you love the most about the club?

ROMA represents a wide range of careers that are separate from the traditional MBA careers, and frankly sometimes overlooked. I started my MBA not overly interested in finance or consulting; I did enjoy learning about those areas however I knew there is much more to learn about other industries. I found ROMA to be that golden link. The universal nature of operations allows ROMA to familiarize students with many (if not all) industries and functions, even within finance and consulting.

What is one tip you have for the incoming class?

Learn how to take care of your mental health. Keep your bigger goal in mind but also keep an open mind.

The opportunity to meet people from the field of Operations, to hear what their stories are, and help them achieve their goals.

What is one tip you have for the incoming class?
