Director of Masters Admissions
Kari joined the Masters Admissions team in 2014. In her role as director, Kari leads our admissions operations and is eager to work with students throughout their application process. She also oversees admissions for our MSPM and MSBA programs and enjoys working with our MS candidates. Kari holds a Bachelor of Arts in English literature from Waynesburg University and a Master of Education from West Virginia Wesleyan College. A self-described “almost-lifelong Pittsburgher,” she and her husband are parents to identical twin girls who keep them on their toes. She also enjoys reading (mostly kids’ books these days) and running (chasing after two, busy toddlers).
Executive Director, MS in Product Management
Brad’s mission is to guide people and align teams toward solving the right problem. Currently, Brad is the Executive Director of the MS in Product Management (MSPM) program. He’s been with Carnegie Mellon University and the MSPM program since 2019, initially as a teacher of HCI for Product Managers. With a passion for coaching and building a problem-solving culture, Brad made the leap to join CMU full-time in late 2020. In his current role, Brad directs all aspects of the program’s growth, features, quality, and continuous improvement. Brad has more than two decades of experience in product development and management roles, having held a variety of roles in a diverse array of corporate cultures. As a young engineer, he earned new product launch experience during his time with Toyota Motor Manufacturing. With the data-driven problem-solving foundation developed at Toyota, he moved into leadership roles in the semiconductor, electrical, and manufacturing industries. In each of these roles, he established and aligned team-oriented cultures, implemented lean processes, and initiated new product development and launch strategies.
