Gene Rhee loves connecting people, building partnerships, and creating value for all constituents—especially students. Whether working in corporate or nonprofit, his priority is encouraging and motivating colleagues to excel individually and as a team.
Rhee's first professional decade brought teaching, account management, and consulting on three different continents—Asia, Africa, and North America. The past decade, he dedicated to higher education career services at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University—his alma mater—Pomona College, and the Argyros School of Business and Economics at Chapman University—also his alma mater. In 2016, Rhee switched gears and joined VMock, an education technology company, as their sales director. While there, he worked with career center leaders around the world to invest in innovative technology to help scale their operations.
Coming back to the institutional side in 2018, Rhee joined Mohr Career Services at the University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business as the executive director. In this role, he helps the college advance its purpose of producing well-educated, career ready graduates, asking hard questions to keep pushing forward, advocating for resources, and sharing the awesome story of the value Mohr Career Services creates for students and employers.
