New Spring 2017 Foresight Students

As the semester draws to a close, we’d like to highlight and thanks our new Spring students who agreed to be profiled for the blog [Better late than never!]

Keri has 20+ years as a market research professional. In her current role at Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, she is the Market Insights Manager. In her role, she supports the C-Suite for US and four Specie Marketing & Sales Organizations with market insights to uncover unmet customer needs, forecasts new product adoption, drives brand strategy, and develops new communications platforms. Keri also acts as provocateur and truth teller to reveal when organizational blinders and “accepted wisdom” are blocking innovation and understanding of customers’ evolving business. She also is responsible for market share reporting, primary market research and competitive intelligence. She has a 13 year old daughter and a 7 year old Portuguese Water Dog. Keri’s passions outside of work are Bikram hot yoga, mountain biking and travel.

Sarah Finchum

Sarah absolutely loves a challenge and expanding her knowledge of every subject she applies herself to, including her decision to return to school to begin a Master’s degree in Foresight at the University of Houston. The leadership skills she learned through various retail positions—and continue to improve upon in and out of the classroom—and her love of meeting and beating goals makes her an invaluable player in a business that is always seeking new ways to improve, whether front of the house or back end operations.
