  • Dec 9, 2020

Sumit Singh (M.S.E. ‘03) has enjoyed an exceptional career marked by perseverance and integrity — two important characteristics of a leader. In an interview with Cockrell School of Engineering’s Texas Engineer Magazine, the proud international Longhorn describes his experiences working for top companies from Amazon to Dell, as well as his current role as CEO at Chewy.

Singh attributes his time at UT as the foundation for his career success.

“At UT, I learned how to be relentlessly curious and I made it my priority to immerse myself in the core concepts of the problems we were learning in class — to dissect the component pieces and then rebuild the solution better and optimally,” Singh said. “UT also exposed me to a diverse and immensely talented student and faculty community with varying backgrounds and interests from all over the world. This provided me the confidence and the mental elasticity to connect with a diverse collection of people, teams and topics at a level that many leaders are not able to appreciate.”
