Meet our Chief Genius

Our Founder and Chief Genius, Vinay Narang, is one of the world's top experts on the GMAT. He knows the GMAT inside-out. He has scored above the 99th percentile each time he has taken the GMAT. He specializes in helping advanced students, those stuck in the 60th to 89th percentiles, reach above the 90th percentile on the GMAT.

Vinay has an MBA from Stanford University and received his BA in economics and mathematics from Claremont McKenna College, from which he graduated with Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian honors.

Tremendous GMAT Experience

Vinay founded GMAT Genius based on his tremendous experience with the GMAT. Immediately before starting GMAT Genius, Vinay worked for over six years with two different national test preparation companies, teaching full-length and weekend GMAT preparation classes and offering private GMAT tutoring. For the second of these companies, Vinay led their GMAT division and trained all new GMAT instructors. As part of the training process, he sometimes recommended that certain new instructors have their provisional offers revoked because he felt that these instructors lacked the requisite teaching abilities.

Vinay remains incredibly focused on teaching excellence. Over his GMAT experience, Vinay has worked with well over 1,000 students to help them excel on the GMAT. Vinay’s former GMAT students have achieved GMAT scores as high as 770, and have gone on to top business schools including Stanford, Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Booth, MIT Sloan, Kellogg, INSEAD, UCLA, and USC.

Diverse Business Background

Vinay also has diverse experience as a business executive. He was President of Power Charged Consulting, which specialized in enhancing individual, group, and organizational effectiveness through leadership advisory, executive coaching, and management development programs. Vinay also served as Chief Financial Officer and VP of Business Development for BusinessElite, as a Senior Manager with Ernst & Young in its Center for Strategic Transactions, and as Manager of Business Development for Universal Studios. Vinay has also worked as a business development executive for Hanna Barbera, and as an investment banker for Salomon Brothers and for Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette.
