Summit, a Washington, D.C.-based provider of sophisticated data analysis and related services to Federal Government agencies as well as private sector clients, announces today that it has appointed one new Senior Analyst and two new Analysts to help accommodate additional client work.
Sejla Karalic has come on board as a Senior Analyst. Previously, she worked for two years with the Federal Reserve System’s Board of Governors, in positions such as Briefing Assistant and Senior Research Assistant for the Labor Sector. There, Karalic analyzed domestic labor-market issues, often using FAME and Stata to manipulate data.
A native of Akron, Ohio, she holds a Bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from the University of Akron.
Sebastian Ramirez, who grew up in Fort Collins, Colo., is an Analyst at Summit, in a role where he will support the firm’s forecasting and modeling engagements. His past experience includes two internships with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, where Ramirez analyzed bond-purchasing data to determine trends and forecast purchases.
This past May, he graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a Master’s degree in economics. Ramirez also earned a Bachelor’s degree in economics, with a minor in mathematics, from the University of Colorado.
A second Analyst, Natalie Hinton, is originally from Elon, N.C., and obtained her Master’s degree in international economic relations from American University, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in economics and international studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
In her role as a Research Assistant with the American University MBA Program Committee, Hinton drafted briefing materials and collected data on trends and characteristics within the program. She has advanced skills in Excel and Stata, which will prove useful on the Summit engagements that Hinton supports.
“We continue to attract the most talented professionals in the fields with which we work,” says Summit Principal Anthony Curcio, “and the hiring of Sejla, Sebastian and Natalie are perfect examples of the bright and highly motivated individuals that we’re recruiting to serve our clients at the highest level.”
