Before joining PwC in 2013, he worked closely with three Senate leaders on Capitol Hill, including seven years with current Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, for whom he served as domestic policy director and deputy chief of staff.
He helped to develop and implement tax, trade, budget and health care policy for McConnell as well as former Sens. Trent Lott, Bill Frist and Phil Gramm.
Kumar met with Kelley students on Dec. 10 and discussed an understanding of policy issues as crucial to many companies, particularly as they develop strategies from both a technical and political perspective. PwC recruits at Kelley, particularly students in the 3/2 MBA Program, which offers them an understanding of accounting principles combined with business fundamentals.
