Carl Koenemann is a Senior Financial Analyst at Walgreens – a position that he has held since October 2013.

After graduating from Saint Louis University with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, Accounting and Finance, Carl immediately went into the financial industry.

Carl has had financial experience in a variety of sectors – prescription drugs, restaurant, real estate, insurance and manufacturing. Carl specializes in management consulting and change implementation, focusing on increasing annual revenue returns.

When I asked Carl Koenemann why he decided to go into finance, he noted that he was always interested in business.

“From age 10 I would shovel driveways and cut lawns to make money. As I went into high school I began detailing boats during the summers. My parents had a boat that I watched professionals do some work on and decided I could do just as good of a job for less money.”

Ultimately, Carl Koenemann became interested in the stock market and how businesses secured capital and used funds in the best interest of the company.

Carl decided to go back to Saint Louis for graduate school because he felt as though there was still more to learn in the financial sector. After applying, he quickly realized that this was an opportunity to distinguish him from other candidates.
