Meet Kavitha Bindra '05, the New Managing Director of Alumni Relations at Yale SOM

August 31st, 2015

Dear Yale SOM Alumni:

It is a great honor for me to introduce myself to you as the incoming Managing Director of Alumni Relations at Yale SOM. I have had the honor of meeting many of you, during my time as a student at Yale SOM, as well as through my work and travels with SOM Admissions. For those I have not had a chance to meet yet, I look forward to connecting with you and gaining even more insight into how the school can continue to engage and support its amazing alumni community.

In many ways, my career trajectory represents the prototypical SOM journey, navigating between non-profit and private sectors and various functional areas. Both pre- and post-MBA, I was a management consultant in Deloitte Consulting’s Strategy and Operations practice in New York City. After several wonderful years at Deloitte, I moved into financial and operational roles at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (all of which were facilitated through networking with Yale SOM alumni), before landing in Yale SOM Admissions. In my new role, I am thrilled to work with a constituency I love, not only because I am a part of it, but because I continue to be amazed by the passion and talent of our amazing community.

I look forward to working with and learning from all of you in the coming years. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Yale SOM alumni community in this capacity!

Best regards,

Kavitha Bindra ‘05
Incoming Managing Director, Alumni Relations
Yale School of Management
