(Houston, TX) – Friday, October 7, 2022 – Allen Austin, a leading management consulting firm based in Houston, is thrilled to announce that Gabriel Ghersi has joined the firm as their newest Intern in the executive search practice. He will learn from and assist Allen Austin in search execution, research, and leadership advisory pulling from his experience in sales, financial consulting, and business development.
Originally from Maracaibo, Venezuela Gabriel grew up playing soccer and eventually dedicated his life to being a professional athlete. Unfortunately, due to injuries, his time as a professional athlete was cut short. However, his experience as an athlete was not for nothing as it instilled in him strong values of resilience, discipline, honesty, and hard work. Allen Austin quickly recognized these strong values in Gabriel from their first conversation with him at an event hosted by the University of Houston C.T. Bauer College of Business.
Edie Bartlett, a Partner at Allen Austin, has been spearheading the Internship program from developing relationships with students to adding value to the experience within the program. Edie says, “We are incredibly grateful to the University of Houston C.T. Bauer College of Business for hosting various events to connect employers with their students. We have been impressed at every step along the way from their staff’s professionalism and friendliness to the quality of their students.”
Gabriel is a shining example of the quality of Bauer College of Business’s students as Edie continues to explain, “We met Gabriel at one of Bauer’s events and knew immediately that he would be a great addition to our firm. We are honored to be one of the first steps in his professional career and are excited to work with more students as we grow our internship program.”
Gabriel is looking forward to being a positive impact at Allen Austin and contributing to their exceptional culture and enhancing the company’s peak performance. He is a Junior at the University of Houston C.T. Bauer College of Business pursuing his degree in finance. Gabriel still plays soccer in amateur leagues and enjoys every minute of it. In his free time, Gabriel loves playing tennis, spending time with family, and songwriting.
