The Simon Community at Vnomics

Using data to drive performance. Because their business depends on analyzing big data to optimize the performance of trucking fleets, Vnomics counts on employees with well-developed quantitative skills, a hallmark of Simon School graduates. So it’s not surprising that over ten percent of Vnomics’ current employees hold Simon MBAs, including President David Chauncey and VP, Operations Ed McCarthy. Today, Vnomics continues to recruit and hire Simon graduates, a strategic investment in the company’s future as a leader in innovative, data-driven approaches to fleet management and maintenance.

Vice President, Operations

“Simon helped round out my engineering background with business skills in areas like accounting. What appealed to me was the Simon program’s focus on true analytical approaches to all aspects of the business. And that’s why Vnomics continues to bring on Simon graduates. When we start to look for data to add value to our customers, an employee with a Simon background is going to come up with a creative look at that data. What’s more, they’re going to have the underlying analytical skills to validate their approach. It applies every single day.”

President

“What I learned at Simon was incredibly useful to me as an engineer and as the leader of a start-up.  The technical background I already had and the business perspective I got from Simon — you put those two together and it really changes your perspective. There are hundreds of examples of how I apply what I learned at Simon on a day-to-day basis here at Vnomics — everything from screening ideas to defining our product value propositions to structuring our board of directors. It was immediately apparent how to apply the theoretical framework I learned to real business challenges. And that’s invaluable whether you’re starting a company or operating in a big one.“

Lead Software Engineer

“As an engineer, I specifically chose the Simon School for their strength in finance. I walked away from the program with a better business mindset and an understanding of why you would enter into certain markets with various products. Using the frameworks I learned during my MBA program, I now have a different thought process when making decisions and can help my team at Vnomics understand other decisions being made.“
