George Thampy '05

In high school, George was a busy student. In addition to taking challenging classes, he was an active member of the Scholar Bowl team (which won the Missouri state championship his senior year) and participated in National Honor Society, Peer Counselors, We the People, Chess Club, Cross Country, and Refuge of Nations (formerly People of Refuge), a refugee ministry run by former Westminster teacher Timothy Baldwin – among other activities. “I learned from the very best,” says George, noting teachers such as Andrew Shaw, Tim Hall and Sra. Joan Dudley. “Women and men like those teachers, as well as John Lewis, Jim Drexler and Jim Marsh, were tremendous examples of Christians who held themselves to the highest standards and set an example for the next generation to truly lift high the Cross,” says George.

After graduating from Westminster, George attended Harvard University. In college, he interned at Google, where he worked in the company’s Online Sales and Operations division to forecast revenue.

While at Harvard, George also taught organic chemistry, led the nation’s only student-run homeless shelter, led the campus political debate organization, hosted a weekly radio show and was active in a number of Christian groups on campus.

George worked as an investment banker at William Blair & Company  working on executing mergers and acquisitions, as well as financing, for a broad range of industries. George says Westminster prepared him well for what would become his professional career.

He is currently a private equity investor at Concentric Equity Partners, focusing on business services and financial institutions. Next year, he will attend the MBA program at Stanford Graduate School of Business.
