Who: Jamie Hutson, ECLP Summer Associate in Power & Water.

School: Year one of a three year dual-degree program at Columbia University, which is a Master of International Affairs in Energy Management and an MBA.

Work Experience: Prior to grad school, I was an entrepreneur, having started and sold two companies. The most recent company I was involved in was a biodiesel feedstock provider where we took the company from 4 people to 80+ in 5 years and sold the business to a Private Equity firm that still operates it today.

My First Week at GE …

People often ask me: Why would you want to come to GE after being an entrepreneur? The answers, while both personal and professional, can be boiled down to scale. As an entrepreneur, you are constantly driving toward scale, to accomplish scale economies.

Global Give Back 2015 - Power & Water dishes up Greek food at Hope Lodge!

Power & Water ECLPs come together for the 2015 Global Give BackECLP Andrew Collier from Power & Water (P&W) led a group of ECLPs from P&W on a community service activity at Hope Lodge in Philadelphia. Hope Lodge provides cancer patients and their family members a place to stay while undergoing cancer treatment in the Philadelphia area. The group cooked a Greek-themed dinner for approximately 70 guests at Hope Lodge. The group was met by an incredibly enthusiastic group who were eager to share powerful stories about different trials and tribulation from patients at the lodge. At one point, one gentleman came up to an ECLP during the night to express his gratitude for their service – his wife was undergoing cancer treatment and the gentleman himself professed that he was a terrible cook, so not only were they able to take his mind off of cooking, but they were also able to give him more time to take care of his wife.

ALUMNI HIGHLIGHT: Sales Process Simplification in India

A GE India strategic initiative - ECLP India Alum recognized in leading the way

The Business Problem:

GE India Commercial team recognized a critical need for Sales Process Simplification (SPS) across its industrial businesses, from Power & Water to Lighting & Healthcare. But there were a lack of central commercial resources to execute a solution for such a wide-scope business project.

The ECLP India Alum team were reached out to for this business need & immediately stepped up to commit to the GE India Commercial Executive Council to lead this project. And the entire India ECLP Alum , in turn, backed them. As a result, a significant part of the India Alum worked tirelessly, aside from their day jobs, to deliver impact by supporting this key strategic initiative. The project benefitted immensely from the strong commercial acumen within the ECLP Alum community, at a critical time when the project seemed headed for delay.
