Andrew Stosik / Marketing & BizDev Intern

Andrew Stosik is the newest intern at Élan Advising. He’s originally from Berkeley, CA, and is studying Managerial Economics with a minor in Technology Management at UC Davis. Andrew’s career aspirations and interests have always laid within business related fields, but he has a newfound interest and passion for marketing.
