Previous to St. Thomas, he held positions in industry at Seagate Technology, ADC telecommunications and The Bergquist Company. He has also consulted with several companies using six sigma and data analytics to solve business problems and set strategic vision. It was in this environment where he learned the importance of data and data driven decision making. He strives to bring this experience and knowledge into the classroom to best help students prepare for the challenges they will face in their careers. Darin interjects real world examples into his teaching and finds ways to connect the theory of class with the realities of business to challenge students to output the best solutions. It is his belief that this confluence of theory and practical application is what truly drives innovation in the business world. Watching students embrace this teaching and apply it to their classwork and final projects is very rewarding.
