Jeff Moore

Prior to joining the University of Oklahoma, Jeff addressed growth and entrepreneurship in a variety of roles and institutions, across a spectrum of industries.

As President of Superior Silica Sands, an early-stage mining company, he oversaw a capital expansion that doubled capacity and introduced new products for the oil services, golf course, and industrial sand industries.

As an Associate Principal with McKinsey & Co., a global management consulting firm, he provided senior leadership counsel to a wide variety of manufacturing, financial, and energy businesses in capital project evaluation and execution, transaction due diligence, and strategic planning. A leader within the energy practice, Jeff was a firm expert in operational excellence and front-line change programs in energy and mining. He was McKinsey Pittsburgh's liaison to the Pittsburgh Technology Council, and business plan screener for the city of Pittsburgh's "Enterprize" business plan competition.

Earlier in his career, Jeff served in the U.S. Navy as a submarine officer, with tours of duty aboard the USS Ohio (Blue) SSBN-726, Trident Training Facility (Bangor), and the NATO submarine command staff. He is a graduate of the Naval Nuclear Power School, a graduate level program in nuclear reactor plant theory and operations.

Jeff is a graduate of Rice University, with degrees in Electrical Engineering (solid state electronics focus) and Economics. He holds a masters degree in Applied Physics from the University of Washington (with a focus on nano-engineering), and an M.B.A. from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University with majors in finance, accounting, and strategy.

Haley Rader | Director of University Programs

Haley Rader

As a fellow, Haley wants to continue the tradition of excellence cultivated at I-CCEW to maximize the experience of both the interns involved in the program and the partnering companies and institutions. Haley believes that I-CCEW provides a unique opportunity to OU students to work on high impact, real world problems that drive innovative solutions across the state and the nation. 

Haley joined I-CCEW in the Fall of 2017 as an interdisciplinary analyst intern working on a social entrepreneurship project that focused on building a market entry strategy and business model for a charitable donation software. She followed her intern semester by leading a project that developed a pricing tool and expansion plan for a private equity firm’s mortgage-buying program. She is excited to continue her experience with I-CCEW as a fellow. 

Haley graduated with special distinction from the University of Oklahoma in May 2019 with a B.S. in Biology. In her free time, Haley likes cooking, writing and re-watching The Office.
