Punit Renjen MM’86
Punit Renjen left India on a Rotary Foundation scholarship to attend Willamette sight-unseen. He knew he wanted a career in business, knew he was capable, and knew he was staring at great possibility. At the Atkinson Graduate School of Management he learned to pursue it.
Since then he’s vaulted to chairman of Deloitte LLP, one of the world’s largest professional-services firms and among Fortune’s best companies to work for. He’s specialized in strategy and operations consulting — helping organizations position themselves competitively and improve operations. Renjen was named one of Consulting magazine’s 25 top consultants in 2007 and also serves on Willamette’s board of trustees, where his acumen, forthrightness and vast experience enrich some of the university’s most important conversations.
