Meet Our 2019 Cohort of Fellows: Richard Meyers

University of North Carolina, Kenan-Flagler Business School

I was born and raised in New York before pursuing a degree in International Business/Spanish/Italian at Eckerd College in Florida. Since then I have worked mostly in the credit ratings industry with Moody's Investors Service first as a Financial Data Analyst and then an Associate Analyst on then Latin American Corporate and then Aerospace/Defense/Heavy Manufacturing teams. In my free time I love to cook, read, travel, and spend time with family and friends.

What made you consider business school?

I chose to attend business school to change industries and functions and pursue my passions for innovation and renewable energy.

What are you most excited about in terms of your time in business school?

I am excited to form bonds with my amazing classmates at Kenan-Flagler and pursue my passions such as Cleantech in an academic setting for the first time.

Who are some leaders (in the LGBT community, in business, or in society) that most inspire you?

Elie Wiesel, Michael Bloomberg, and Harvey Milk.

What's one thing everyone should know about you?

I want to use renewable energy development to fight climate change, economic inequality, finite resource challenges, global health crises, and many more issues that face us today as a society.
