“I had no idea I would go into business,” admits Becca Knowles Braun '88. "I really didn't think I was a business person. I didn't fit the personality. But from the first day on my first job in actual business, I just loved it.”
That love for the business world has evolved, taking Becca, a 1988 graduate of Lincoln School, from a position as a management consultant for a boutique firm in Boston to her current role as the president of The Braun Group, a Shaker Heights, Ohio company that produces CEO memoirs and biographies. The Harvard University linguistics major and graduate of Harvard Business School has made her mark in other areas as well, working in private equity, co-founding a tech company, starting several non-profit organizations, and serving as a founding team member of Jumpstart, a venture fund that has invested equity in more than 50 start-up companies in Ohio.
