On behalf of the TIAA Board of Directors, I am pleased to tell you that Alicia Engel, EMGM class of 2016 (Cohort “E25”), has joined TIAA as its Operations Manager effective February 20, 2018.  Throughout Alicia’s 20+ year career, her passion to drive growth through employee engagement has established her as a positive force for change in a diverse set of industries and functions. Her roles have included business development, sales operations, corporate learning and staff development.  In her most recent role with Cigna Healthcare, Alicia developed U.S. based talent programs which she subsequently rolled out to several of the company’s international offices.  

Alicia enrolled at Thunderbird in order to become a more effective bridge-builder and leader. And as a true Thunderbird, she has traveled to Europe, the U.K., Asia, Russia  and Mexico for business as well as for educational pursuits and humanitarian efforts. Very soon after graduation, Alicia became active in TIAA as the volunteer webinar manager and then moved to be interim Operations Manager. We welcome her to the TIAA team and we know you will appreciate and value her passion to support fellow Thunderbird alumni.  
Regards,
John Schuldt ’85
Executive Director
