We would like to shine the next Bison Spotlight on a member of the Class of 2020, David Roy. A native of Paxton, Massachusetts, he is pursuing a degree in Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and Management. Here on The Hill, David is a member of the Emerging Leaders Program, Investments Club, and is a Bison Shuttle Driver. Outside of school he enjoys traveling to breweries to sample different beers, attending sporting events, and playing sports. A fun fact about David is that he has a yellow lab named Tessie.
This past summer David interned for The Boston Beer Company in Boston, MA. They make Samuel Adams, Angry Orchard, Twisted Tea, and Truly Seltzer Beverages. In this role, he was a Supply Chain Planning Intern. David was responsible for analyzing inventory reports and ensuring product quantities at shipping locations for order fulfillment. He also utilized SAP software to develop stock transfer orders that increased efficiencies in logistics and demand planning.
When David was asked about his experience he said, “Overall, I had a very positive experience interning at the Boston Beer Company. I found it to be rewarding and fun to work for a company that I have always admired and looked up to.”
His favorite thing during his internship was being in South Boston and working for a company that prides itself on culture and creativity. David said, “I enjoyed being a part of a great organization that likes to have a good time, but is also very good at what they do and has top-notch professionals in the field.”
David’s key takeaway from his internship was the importance of Supply Chain in the operations side of a business. Prior to his internship, he did not have experience with Supply Chain. After his summer internship, he gained a real interest in this field.
After graduation, David will be working full-time as an Associate Buyer for National Grid in Waltham, Massachusetts.
His advice to others is “Always be open to new opportunities. Find what you are passionate about and be the hardest worker in the room.”
We want to congratulate David on this exciting new opportunity! The CPDC Team wishes you the best of luck with your future career and thank you for sharing your opportunities with us!
