In his college search, Rob Relief stumbled upon a small college in Kalamazoo, MI, and made a leap, unsure of what was in store for him. The next four years afforded him many opportunities for growth. “During my time at K, I cultivated my strongest skills and developed new ones along the way,” Rob says. Rob chose to pursue his bachelor’s degree at Kalamazoo College in business with a minor in mathematical statistics. Along the way to receiving his degree, Rob was a four year letter winner in football, studied abroad in Madrid, and started a student group on campus, Young Men of Color (YMC).
After graduating, Rob joined Mackinac Partners, a leading financial advisory and turnaround management firm that focuses on guiding companies strategically towards financial growth, as a financial and statistical analyst. In fact, he was the first analyst ever hired by Mackinac Partners as a new undergraduate. Since joining the company in 2013, Rob has learned the ins and outs of corporate finance and operations. He’s had the opportunity to work on five different engagements, including the restructuring of Colt Defense and the Chapter 11 bankruptcy of Agfeed Industries.
Rob enjoys trying new activities and experiences, learning new, exciting business concepts and having engaging discussions with friends, preferably over a great meal.
