Hello, my name is Derek Fizel, and I am a Management Information Systems (MIS) major at the Fox School of Business. I am originally from Southampton, PA and went to Council Rock High School South. I currently work a full time sales position in the Philadelphia market while attending class part time. I have been in the sales industry since the age of 19 and have worked with my current company for 8 years and counting. Balancing work and school has helped to cultivate my personal growth into a business professional. In my free time I enjoy exercise, professional networking, and investing in the stock market.
I am currently focused on my MIS major as I have always been excited about the innovative and transformative technology applied to the business world. I wish to pursue a career as an analyst or consultant in the IT world. I would love to apply the skills that I have developed over my career in the sales industry. A personal aspiration of mine after graduation is to work and grow with a company that has an innovative business focus to further transform the current technological landscape. I am very excited for my remaining time at Temple University and for any future opportunity.
