Kellogg Automotive Club Who are we?
Who are we? • Chip Goetzinger – Co-Chair • Chip has been car crazy all his life - from Hot Wheels to radio controlled cars to the real thing, he's always had a passion for anything with four wheels and an engine. After wasting the last 15 years of his life studying computer science at MIT and working in Silicon Valley, he finally came to his senses, attended Kellogg, and set about career switching like all his classmates. Chip spent the summer working for Ford Motor Company's Marketing Leadership Program, and in his free time (ha!) he reads about cars, drives video game cars, drives rings around his co-chairs on the kart tracks, drives real cars, and dreams of some day finishing the rebuild on his project car. He also has a wife that tolerates his obsession and a young daughter who already makes "Vroom vroom" noises with her own Hot Wheels. Kellogg Automotive Club Who are we?
Who are we? • Zubin Vandrevala – Co-Chair • Born and raised in India, Zubin’s obsession for cars began when he aquired a set of ‘dinky’ cars at the age of four. A Mechanical Engineer by education, his obsession paid off with him landing himself a lucrative job offer with India's largest and only indigenous car manufacturer – Tata Motors. Zubin has held various positions in marketing and sales, customer support and production and prior to Kellogg as Area Manager was responsible for the marketing and sales of Tata passenger cars in Sri Lanka. The automotive club leadership team without Zubin would be like Chip without his goatee – and that’s just wrong. Kellogg Automotive Club Who are we?
