Class of 2019

The Kappa Alpha Order continues to place students at some of the most distinguished institutions around the country. The fourth year class was especially impressive, as they approach graduation and is certainly ready to join the American workforce.

Recent grad Travis Ames, executive in charge of risk management, is heading to Houston to work at Grant Thornton LLP, the seventh biggest accounting network in the world. Specializing in audit, tax, and advisory, Grant Thornton operates in 59 locations and nets over $1.7 billion in revenues. We know that Travis will be a tremendous addition to this company, as he has been an outstanding model of the values that constitute the Kappa Alpha Order.

We also have many brothers entering the world of finance. Recent grad, Sam Sobell, leads the way, as he joins Travis in Houston, working for the second largest bank in the United States, at the Bank of America. Rising third-year Ed Radion, is also doing impressive things in the financial industry. Recently accepted into the McIntire School of Commerce, and leading the Alternative Investment Fund here at UVA as the managing director of the special situations group, Ed is already making waves in the highly competitive industry. He beat out students much older than him to land an internship as a summer analyst at an investment bank in New York, called Three Ocean Partners.

Heading to one of the most prestigious consulting firms in the world, Boston Consulting Group, is Grant Anhorn, another recent grad brother in the Kappa Alpha Order at UVA. Boston Consulting Group is recognized as a premier destination for students interested in consulting, and we are fortunate to have Grant representing us there. Having interned there last summer, Grant is joining BCG for a full time job, and will bring the success and drive that he displayed here at UVA to his new career. Also heading to a top consulting destination is recent grad Grant Baumer, reining Treasurer at KA and an intelligent, hardworking student. He is heading to Deloitte, in Washington DC, to pursue his love for business and consulting. In addition, recent grad John Ruppert is also pursuing consulting, heading to Alexandria, Virginia, to join MPR as a chemical consultant.

All the brothers at the Kappa Alpha Order here at the University of Virginia are embarking on extraordinary careers, epitomizing the values of knowledge, leadership, and excellence, instilled in them by the brotherhood.
