2023 Thirty Under 30

Jacob Blaudow


Jacob Blaudow, Alpha Epsilon (Florida), graduated in May 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and continued his education at Wake Forest University, where he earned a master’s degree in business analytics and was named “Most Likely to Question the Professor” by his peers. Currently, he serves as a staff consultant at Ernst & Young, specializing in global site selection and helping clients drive consistent return on investments through strategic sustainability planning, incentive analysis and location decisions. In all he does, Blaudow focuses on his organization’s mission of “Building a Better Working World, which he accomplishes through his continued dedication to Pi Kappa Phi’s values. While he utilizes his experience in Pi Kappa Phi to help others, it has also contributed to his success in both his personal and professional life. His strong bonds of brotherhood helped him navigate relocating, connected him with a graduate school roommate and pushed him through the trials and tribulations of beginning a career during the height of the pandemic. He currently resides in Chicago, where he supports the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Field Museum and Lincoln Park Zoo financially as well as through volunteer environmental work. Blaudow feels a sense of personal responsibility to achieve the goals he sets for himself, which range from helping to develop quality water testing for local families to earning additional certifications to further his expertise in the field.
