>> Biography

Yin is honored to return to the stage for the third time as co-MC of the Wharton Alumni Forum. She is Managing Director of Silicon Valley-based COMPAS Advisory, which helps executives of software start-ups build and execute their global expansion strategy more quickly and efficiently. During the last four years in the Bay Area, she has also held international leadership positions at smart grid pioneer Silver Spring Networks, as well as two early-stage start-ups in geo-spatial data visualization and solar technology. Prior to her switch into clean tech, she was a Project Leader at The Boston Consulting Group, based both in Berlin, Germany and Beijing, China.

She is a Beijing-born, Germany-raised, US-educated Canadian citizen, and proud alumna of Wharton’s MBA Program, as well as Penn’s joint-degree Huntsman Program in International Studies and Business. Since graduation, she has stayed engaged as an admissions interviewer and officer of local Penn/Wharton Clubs.

While on campus, Yin honed her performance skills as a Wharton Follies cast member and Co-founder of PennYo, the first collegiate Chinese a cappella group, which has released three studio albums to date. She now spends her free time becoming fluent in Spanish, running her China-based scholarship for underprivileged female undergraduates in STEM majors and training towards her second-degree black belt in Taekwon-Do.
