Director of Development
Dear Alumni, parents and friends of Lyle: please reach out to us for all things Lyle. I want to get to know each and every one of you.
Bio: Maya began her career on the private equity side of a hedge fund conducting due diligence for prospective venture capital investments. She continued on to Wall Street consultancy Winterberry Group as an analyst. In 2006, Maya attended a summer session at Harvard University, for which she ended up fundraising. Currently, she serves as Director of Development at SMU's Lyle School of Engineering.
Maya graduated from Trinity Valley School in Fort Worth, TX and TCU’s Neeley School of Business with a BBA in Finance. Outside of work, Maya enjoys international and adventure travel, visiting her East coast family and friends and swimming in every ocean she can.
Why I chose Lyle: I believe in the power of engineering, Lyle’s unique strength and Marc’s leadership to achieve the strategic objectives laid out in our plan. I grew up in a family of engineers. Engineers are creators and innovators. They bring into existence things that change the world, be they high-tech products and services driving economies or altruistic endeavors targeting societal good. The value created by solving society’s problems using technology has been the foundation of growth in our nation for decades.
Lyle’s Unique Strength: Fortune 100 companies with which we have met have commented: “Whatever you are doing in leadership and soft skills development, keep doing it. We can put your students in front of the customer faster than those from any other school in the country.”
