Andrew Rodriguez -Vice President Strategic Consulting at The State Street Corporation
For Andrew Rodriguez, the path to success starts with access to opportunities. And Rodriguez, VP of Strategic Consulting at State Street, feels a responsibility to help others advance their educations, careers or Businesses. Born in New York City to parents who had emigrated from Ecuador, Rodriguez had few role models or mentors growing up, outside his family and teachers. His parents pushed education as a ticket out of the projects, and he started taking college-level classes while still in high school. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering from the Cooper Union in New York, establishing the school’s chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers while a graduate student. He earned an MBA from Harvard Business School. Rodriguez says he has a responsibility to serve as a role model to others, offering coaching and guidance to those who need it. Drawing on his own experience, he said he knows what a difference that kind of mentoring can make.
