Mr. Michael Modon, Google.com, Inc.
Mr. Michael Modon is originally from Bath, OH, and graduated from The University of Akron in 2010 with degrees in Finance and Economics. During his time at Akron, Michael had the opportunity to study abroad in Spain and complete various internships in Northeast Ohio. While on campus, Michael was involved in a handful o organizations such as SIFE, Financial Management Association and Honors Business Group.
Staying actively involved while at The University of Akron was a conscious decision Michael made to help pursue opportunities to both learn and network with others. In particular, meeting Mr. Warren Buffett through a school trip to Omaha was a great opportunity for him. "It was quite the experience - not many people get to meet such a monumental leader in business. It's a good story to share with family and friends - doesn't hurt to bring up in interviews too."
Upon graduating, Michael moved out to San Francisco, CA, to pursue a career in the tech industry at Google. He currently works in their Financial Planning & Analysis group, focusing on YouTube content partnerships for Asia Pacific. Outside of work Michael's interests include traveling, photography, and playing & watching sports. When asking Michael about some advice he lives by, he mentioned, "nothing is impossible . . . trust in yourself and have faith in your ability to seek out your future. It's difficult to feel accomplishement without pursuing your goals."
