Intern Keshav Simhadri Makes Major Impact at Wright Medical

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics' Internship program provides excellent opportunities for students to synthesize the knowledge they have obtained in class with real world experience. Undergraduate and graduate students are receiving useful opportunities to advance their career prospects, while the companies involved are often reaping major benefits from the students' work. Keshav Simhadri, a student in the Customer Driven MBA Program, has made just such an impact as a Supply Chain Analyst Intern with Wright Medical Technology in Arlington, TN.

Simhadri worked to improve Wright Medical's supply chain's efficiency by analyzing operations and making strategic suggestions. "The actual business problems along with the knowledge gained from the classes provided valuable experience in understanding the business situations," Simhadri explains.  Gary Henley, Wright Medical's President and CEO, believes Simhadri's high quality work had a significant impact on the company's future. "As a result of his work and suggested actions we have implemented a number of changes that will have a significant impact, both in improved services to our customers and an annualized cost reduction approaching $100k per year" Henley states.
