Hi, my name is Max Weiss. I am from Crown Point, Indiana and a student in the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. My niche is supply chain management and information & process management. I seek out inefficiencies and leverage technology to reduce cost while improving quality and delivery. I am very involved on campus: I am the president of Corporate Strategy Club, a technical team consultant for IU’s information technology department, and a case study pioneer. I seek a company where I can: create value, be valued, and make a difference in peoples’ lives.
