Corey van der Wal is passionate about developing authentic leaders who want to make an impact in the world around them. As a digital health executive, he does so in multiple settings including hiring and managing large teams. This passion extends to advising individuals applying to business school which he has done in various capacities for nearly 10 years.
Corey has worked in multiple functions within the U.S. healthcare system, an industry which he believes needs significant innovation. His experience includes investment banking (M&A advisory at Lazard), management consulting (strategy & operations at Deloitte), biotechnology (multiple startups) and digital health product management and analytics (large public and late stage startup). Currently, he is an independent consultant for early stage digital health companies. He has founded and led teams of up to 20 and is constantly interviewing candidates for his teams, coaching existing team members and mentoring former team members.
Corey has an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Economics from Pomona College. He is from the San Francisco Bay Area but currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is an avid sports fan, foodie and dog father and loves being outside doing pretty much anything.
