Shimri WintersGeneral Manager
Shimri was accepted to the London Business School Executive MBA Program at age 27 with a GMAT score of only 640. It was his confidence, his vision and his ability to articulate and express himself that helped him get accepted to the school of his preference. During his MBA he acted as his class representative and was involved with the technology, private equity and consulting LBS clubs. After completing his MBA, Shimri joined a prestigious consulting firm and later filled key roles in some of the world’s leading high tech firms. Shimri was a member of the London Business School Admission Committee for 8 years, responsible for interviewing and assessing over 40 MBA applicants. Acknowledging the fact that many young and talented individuals fail to showcase their promise in their applications, Shimri got involved in helping MBA candidates navigate the application process. He later became a partial owner of ARINGO and today serves as the company president.
