Darshan Patel - Marketing Advisor

Darshan Patel has a passion for education innovation, growth strategy, and digital advertising. His expertise in these fields and love for education grew most in his time at Google, where for more than 4 years he helped clients such as Sylvan Learning, Kumon, WyzAnt, and Rosetta Stone plan and execute market expansions, product innovation, and advertising campaigns.

After earning his MBA from University of Michigan, Darshan joined the Strategy practice of Ernst & Young as a Senior Management Consultant. He is currently focused on providing private equity firms with post-merger integration and growth plans. Though Darshan loves consulting, it was only a matter of time before he jumped back in the education game with 24/7.

The educator that had the greatest impact on Darshan’s life is Robert Atkin, current Professor at University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Atkin’s wisdom is applicable both within and outside of academic walls. His words still inspire Darshan on his professional and personal journeys today.
