Lisa M. Price
B.S., Chemical Engineering, 1981
Price knew early in her study of chemical engineering that the subject would be a foundation, she said, as she would dive straight into strategy and management. “I found my engineering background to be differentiating throughout my career, particularly in investment banking and in my business development roles at GE,” Price said.
Price began her career at Freeport-McMoRan and held roles at Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank from 1995 to 2005. She then embarked on a 14-year career in business development at General Electric, ascending to the role of General Manager of Business Development, in which she drove global business development activities in power conversion, steam, nuclear, and gas franchises, generating more than $33 billion in global business and transactions. She now serves as managing director of the North America Corporate Restructuring Group at Alvarez & Marsal.
Price remains active in her involvement as an alumna, as a member of the Virginia Tech Engineering International Programs Board, the Department of Chemical Engineering advisory board, and the Virginia Tech engineering advisory board.
