MBA News: Wharton’s J.J. Cutler Moves On…

In a letter to Wharton students, the school’s deputy vice dean of MBA career management, admissions, and financial aid, J.J. Cutler (MBA ’97) announced that he would be leaving the school to pursue a senior management position with Aramark. Cutler first joined the Wharton administration in 2009 as the director of MBA admissions and financial aid, and previously held senior executive marketing roles with Aramark and Johnson & Johnson. When Cutler formally leaves in early August, Maryellen Lamb will step in as interim director of MBA career management. Maryellen has worked at Wharton for the past five years, consistently being the top-ranked student advisor and serving as a member of the leadership team overseeing MBA career management advisors. Cutler was known for his willingness to cut through student anxiety and “tell it straight,” as exemplified during our exclusive interview with him in 2010. We wish him all the best.
