Orlando LilesJob before MMM: Merchandising at Levi Strauss & Co.Job after MMM: Associate at McKinsey & Company

Why did you choose MMM?  

Having worked in fashion, I was incredibly passionate about great design.  I wanted to gain exposure to what the design thinking process could look like in other industries and refine my skills so that I may apply them to developing products outside of apparel.

How is the MMM Program helping you reach your goals?

I’m a firm believer that every company is a tech company. Companies across all industries will need to understand how to leverage technology and innovation in their core activities to maintain a competitive advantage.  The MMM Program helps to reinforce this forward-thinking mindset in my head.

If you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be and what would you order?

Pharrell Williams. I would order whatever he ordered, because it would probably be the right choice.

What is something on your bucket list?

Fly around in a squirrel suit.

I wish I knew how to...

Play the drums as well as Questlove. He is awesome.
