Veronica Chua 18C

Operations Consultant | McKinsey & Company | Miami, FL

Veronica Chua is a self-described “supply chain rebel,” transforming how organizations source, manufacture, and distribute products around the globe. A rising leader in the operations industry, Chua has launched supply chain transformations at more than 10 companies. She leverages digital technologies to build centralized strategies that make supply chains more resilient to bottlenecks arising from pandemics, natural disasters, and more. Chua advocates for women of color in the supply chain industry. She hopes her efforts will advance leadership inclusion and achieve gender parity in male-dominated fields.

As a Robert W. Woodruff Scholar, she pursued both a liberal arts and STEM education through the engineering dual degree program at Emory and Georgia Tech. Chua was also selected as Emory’s first female student to represent the United States as a Schwarzman Scholar at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, where she pursued her master’s degree in global affairs and wrote her thesis on the negative environmental impacts generated by the logistics sector.

“Emory has been such an incredible gift in my life. I am forever indebted to the extraordinary network of professors, mentors, and advisers who truly believed in my potential and opened doors beyond my wildest dreams.”
