Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise

UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Leadership Fellows

Background:  I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC.  I attended the University of Virginia, where I graduated with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 2007.  Upon graduating I moved to Washington, DC as an IT Consultant with Accenture.  I worked for three years with Accenture serving the Defense Logistics Agency and delivering system improvements to better supply the US military all around the world.  Most recently I worked for Guident Technologies as a Business Intelligence consultant with the US Patent and Trademark Office. 

Career Path:  I could not be more excited to be back in North Carolina.  I chose to attend Kenan-Flagler due to the entrepreneurial spirit of the school, and hope to leverage my technical background and passion for technology to drive entrepreneurship in North Carolina.  I believe the Research Triangle will continue to be instrumental in creating and cultivating entrepreneurship well into the 21st century and beyond.   

Interests and Hobbies:  I am an avid musician, playing guitar, piano and mandolin.  I have enjoyed playing in rock bands for the last 12 years, most recently as the lead guitarist for Washington, DC based Round About.  Aside from music, I enjoy golf, skiing, and rooting for the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Braves.
