Adam Dole (2010), Healthcare Innovator

Adam Dole was one of the pioneering cohorts who joined the program in its first year and graduated in our first class, in 2010. As an interaction designer, he was focused on gaining new skills that would allow him to lead innovation within the healthcare world in order to make it work better for all kinds of people. Throughout the program, he used project opportunities to explore his interests and, upon graduating, became the Business Planning Manager for the Mayo Clinic’s West Coast innovation center, building-out their Silicon Valley innovation Center. His primary responsibility is to incubate opportunities for future Mayo Clinic products, services and businesses. His  focus includes creating new services that extend Mayo Clinic’s reach and impact beyond the hospital walls. In 2013, he was invited to the White House to be one of the 100 inaugural White House Innovation Fellows, specializing as a liaison to the Department of Health and Human Services. As one of the few designers, surrounded mostly by engineers and coders, he’s lead initiatives for citizen health reporting and new services.

Kurt McCullouch (2011), Steelcase

As an Applied Research Consultant at Steelcase Inc., Kurt leverages business strategies to strengthen and align the relationship between people, culture, and the work environment. One of his responsibilities is to delivering Steelcase insights that illuminate customer challenges in a variety of evolving work settings. His architecture background, combined with the business and sustainability skills he learned in the DMBA program, help him build, lead, and nurture strong consulting relationships with global clients, both inside Steelcase and outside the company.

Mei Lan Ho-Walker (2010), BT Financial

Mei Lan was a designer looking to expand her opportunities. Throughout the DMBA program, she explored ways of changing business and, upon graduating, moved to Sydney, Australia to join an exclusive innovation group within BT Financial, one of the largest banks in the world. Her responsibilities include identifying new business opportunities that serve customer needs across the bank’s diverse businesses, developing and prototyping new services, and presenting these innovation opportunities to the board of directors and senior managers within the bank. Australia was a place she never thought she’d live but she’s now thriving in its hotbed of innovation.

Vinitha Watson (2010), Innovation Incubator

Vinitha was a serial entrepreneur when she came to the DMBA program, having started her own textile importing company and helping to set-up Google’s Indian headquarters. She came to the program to hone her business skills, having relied on her intuition and natural abilities in her work before. After graduating, she fulfilled a dream to create a music incubator in Oakland, CA, with her husband David, and together they help musicians and singers record and produce albums and programmers and entrepreneurs create new music apps and software. Their incubator, Zoo Labs, has thrived for four years and Vinitha has recently joined CCA’s board of trustees where she can influence the strategic direction of the school that gave her the opportunity to explore her own creativity.
