Haleh Modarres values guiding others to reach their full potential. Through continuous support, feedback and patience, Haleh helps her Square One clients holistically reflect their visions, talent and capabilities across their applications. As a result, those clients secure offers that will allow them to continue enhancing all the aforementioned at a top business school.
Haleh has an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business and a BSc in Industrial Engineering from Sharif University of Technology. She was one of a select few admitted to the GSB straight out of college. During her time at the GSB, Haleh was on the leadership team of the International Student Committee.
Haleh has lived, studied and worked both in the US and internationally (Dubai, Tehran, London). Starting her career in marketing and brand management in large, multinational corporations, Haleh later pivoted towards operational roles in smaller companies and startups within the consumer goods and retail spaces. Ultimately, Haleh followed her dream of starting something on her own. As such, in 2015 she launched a Foodservice distribution business in the Middle East.
Haleh lives between Los Angeles and Dubai and spends her free time cooking, traveling and doing Pilates. She’s traveled to 28 countries and, when not working with her Square One clients or on her venture, can likely be found planning her next adventure!
