Meet Drew Nakajima

Data Engineer
"Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own?" – Matthew 20:15

Drew has always had a proclivity towards math and science and that intellectual appetite led him to pursue an engineering degree at Lafayette College. While there, he honed in on his problem solving and critical thinking skills, while also playing ice hockey for Lafayette’s men’s club team. Drew graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Economics. Professionally, Drew has worn many hats, including technical sales, project management, and design engineering. In all these roles, Drew has most enjoyed the challenge and mental stimulation of technical problem solving. He is also grateful for the invaluable experiences of relationship building through the training programs of these companies, as well as interfacing within their various departments as a project manager.

Having spent the first four years of his career in the industrial/manufacturing industries, Drew sought a career change with a focus on finding a work culture that aligned more closely with his values. He sought out a corporation that offered not only a team-based culture, but also one that offered a “client-centric” mission. Given the opportunity to work part-time doing “grunt work” at Key Financial, Drew quickly realized that this company was different from the other places he had worked. Very impressed by the talented people and client focused atmosphere that drive Key Financial, Drew was emphatic about his desire to join the team. Each department within Key Financial has benefitted from the many layers of talent and intellectual capacity that Drew brings to every project. His great attitude coupled with his ability to adapt has quickly moved him from a part-time employee to a full-time addition to our team.

In his free time, he enjoys playing golf and ice hockey. In the winters, you can find him skiing or building gingerbread houses out of graham crackers! Too bad Patti did not know of his gingerbread house building skills all those years ago when she hosted the famous “Gingerbread House” competitions for her neighborhood!
