The Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) honored Tim Hotchandani (BBA ’04) this winter with one of its annual Forward under 40 awards for excellence in his field and commitment to the Wisconsin Idea.

Hotchandani is managing director at Rothschild & Co., one of the world’s largest financial advisory firms, and has worked on Wall Street since graduating from the Wisconsin School of Business. He’s involved with Badgers in Finance, an alumni organization that helps WSB students prepare for careers on Wall Street.

That’s been important to Hotchandani since he was a WSB student. He co-founded the Investment Banking Club, which helps students develop skills and prepare for interviews with top firms and has been instrumental in helping WSB alumni increase their presence on Wall Street.

“Tim represents the best of Business Badgers,” says Shannon Timm, director of alumni relations at WSB. “Not only has he succeeded on Wall Street but he’s continuing to stay involved with the School to ensure others can find success there, too.”

Hotchandani’s career achievements and commitment to helping students and alumni had previously been noted by WSB, which featured him in 2015 as one of the School’s “8 to Watch” in Update magazine. He is a past member of the Wisconsin Business Alumni Board.
