Jake Amell

Career Colleague Co-Leader

Hello! My name is Jake Amell, and I am a Senior from Ballston Lake, New York. I am in the MS/BS program studying Finance with a concentration in Financial Planning. Along with my undergraduate degree I have a minor in Accountancy and a minor in Earth, Environment and Global Sustainability. My most recent position was with Goldman Sachs in the Consumer and Wealth Management Division where I will be starting full time after graduation.

Before my time at Goldman Sachs I worked at a Pioneer, a community bank in Albany, NY.   Over the course of 4 years at Pioneer, I have grew and took on new roles. I first started off as a Customer Service Representative (CSR) and Teller. After being there for a couple years I became a credit analyst and through the course of the pandemic I helped lead the PPP loan program. My last role there was with their Wealth Management Division where I found that I loved this type of work. During that time I got my Series 7 License and determined that this is the type of work that I want to do post graduation.

I love being in the Waltham area as there is so much to do and so many great opportunities. I love spending time with friends on and off campus. On the weekends I enjoy spending time outside and skiing during the winter. Going into Boston to see a game is fun but I will always stay loyal to the Yankees. I am looking forward to what is to come this year and all the great memories that we will all make together at Bentley.
