For over a decade, math, science, technology and entrepreneurship professionals have joined forces with the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences administration to strengthen, advise and support students.
The College Volunteer Leadership Council (CVLC) is composed of accomplished friends and alumni of the college who give back to individual students and to the college as a whole. Council members work with college administration to support mentored learning, assist in outreach, facilitate fund raising and prepare students for industry or graduate school.
This year, CPMS is pleased to welcome five new members into the CVLC:
De Lyle W. Bloomquist is currently the president of the global chemical business Tata Chemicals Limited. He is also a partner in Asklepios Capital LLC, an angel funding venture focused on biotechnology start-up companies. Bloomquist graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in business management and later received his MS in industrial administration from Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon.
Evan Child received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from BYU and later went on to receive his MBA from the University of Texas at Austin. Child worked for seven years at ExxonMobil in Houston and recently relocated back to Salt Lake City as a senior developer associate for Goldman Sachs.
Bryan Heslop received his bachelor’s degree from BYU in computer engineering with a minor in business management. He joined National Instruments in 2008, where he is a consulting field engineer and their liaison for recruiting at BYU.
