I am pleased to announce the appointment of Huyen Nguyen as Assistant Director of Regional Analysis. Huyen will be supporting Mike Sullivan and the Midwest team and will begin her work with us on Monday, October 31.
Huyen is a 2008 Notre Dame graduate, receiving her Bachelor of Business Administration with a dual major of Marketing and Theatre. While a student at Notre Dame, she was president of the Vietnamese Student Association in 2006-2007 and a member of the Diversity Council of Notre Dame from 2005 to 2007. She also served as an intern with University Relations, working with Shannon Cullinan and Heather Hakanen, so she brings some familiarity with Development.
After graduating from Notre Dame, she joined the Target Corporation in Minneapolis as a Senior Business Analyst, managing the retailer’s multi-million dollar boys sportswear business. While in this role, she developed Target’s strategic urban/skate strategy for the “Shaun White 4 Target” campaign and served as a Division Mentor Captain. She was promoted to Pharmacy Inventory Expert, developing an inventory management strategy and business process that significantly improved the retailer’s pharmacy business line. While at Target, she received multiple corporate awards, including the Senior Vice President Award of Recognition, Operational Effectiveness Outstanding Partnership Award, Excellence in Execution Award and a Teamwork and Collaboration Award, to name just a few.
Huyen has wonderful life and Notre Dame stories that I encourage you to ask her about when you meet her.
We are thrilled to have her join us and look forward to the contributions she will make to our success in Development!
