Waterloo Engineering students and alumni are invited to participate in an exclusive virtual Office Hour with Waterloo Engineering alumnus Harrison Lung (BASc '04, Computer Engineering), Partner of Portfolio Value Creation at Siris Capital Group.
During this Office Hour, Harrison Lung will talk about his unique career journey since graduating from the computer engineering program at the University of Waterloo. Harrison will discuss the insights and lessons learned along his career path during several transitions: he moved from a student to an engineer at Bell Canada, to his work as management and strategy consultant at Accenture and then as a partner at McKinsey in Asia and the US – working in over 20+ countries, and then to his most recent move to Siris Capital Group, a private equity firm that has invested several billion dollars in mission-critical products and services across the tech and telecom landscape.
