Daniel Lewis Alumni Profile
Purdue offered a whole host of development experiences for me. These have shaped me as a person, professional, and as a leader. I was able to pursue engineering, technical, and managerial disciplines simultaneously; lessons learned from education in an industrial setting transferred easily to leadership of a professional services firm, even one nearly 90 years old. At Purdue, I never felt part of a crowd - the personal counseling, nurturing, and consistently high and demanding standards all worked in a way that no other institution provided for me.
