Rafael Hines



Rafael was born in Manhattan and apart from two stints in Boston to attend Harvard he has remained true to his New York roots (despite lamenting the scarce tennis court time available in New York City). After graduating from Harvard with a BA in History and secondary focus in Italian Studies, Rafael spent five years working in the retail industry, where he held increasingly senior positions at Ralph Lauren, Coach, and Michael Kors. After gaining exposure to buying, international expansion, and financial planning, Rafael decided to head back to Boston to attend HBS. After graduation, he went into investment banking, completing due diligence on leading companies in the consumer and retail industries. He recently left finance to transition back into an operational role in the consumer sector. Outside of work, Rafael enjoys tennis and plays the violin. While his a cappella days are long behind him, he still dreams of becoming a pop star.
