Neal studied finance at the University of Pennsylvania before launching his career as a financial analyst. He joined Kargo after sharing an elevator ride—to another job interview—with Kargo’s CEO. Once the pair got to talking, Neal gave his professional pitch and was in the office weeks later—instead of the one he was originally headed for.
Neal runs the numbers on a basic accounting level and a larger one that informs strategic business operations. His calculations and estimations help project future situations so decision-makers can come up with smarter business plans. Additionally, Neal’s daily duties keep the Kargo boat afloat—like the time he led the company through its first audit.
