Joey Ammouri, Professional MBA '17
“Rice Business Board Fellows was one of the main reasons I chose to attend Rice. I remember thinking what a unique and amazing opportunity it would be to help further a cause I care about. As Board Fellows president, it has been a truly heartwarming and rewarding experience to share my vision, and expand the school’s reach to serve more nonprofits.”
As a child of immigrants from Nazareth, Joey Ammouri carries with him their drive for success, and selfless passion for giving back and being involved in the community. Along with his position as industrial sales manager at GE, busy social and travel schedule, and passion for running and fitness, Joey is also heavily involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters. He naturally found Rice Business Board Fellows to be the perfect fit when he started business school. Joey was placed with the Positive Coaching Alliance, which partners with youth sports organizations to help kids become “Better Athletes, Better People.” As Board Fellows president, he hopes it will be for others what it’s been for him — a prominent part of his graduate education.
