Career Exploration Day with John Quinn '09

Macaire Machado
John Quinn '09 came home to Notre Dame for one of our career exploration days. He spoke to the World Language classes about how learning another language helped him secure his position with BMW. His experience helped our 21st-century learners understand the importance of diversity in a global marketplace. Students enjoyed learning from John and they even got to sit in his state-of-the-art BMW!
John is in Product Management for BMW Group. He has been with them since the early years of his career when he was in customer service and parts. His life-long passion for cars and motorsport has provided the opportunity for an international career with experience working in Europe, Asia, and North America as both a project and product manager.

In his current role, he is responsible for managing and ensuring the success of the BMW mid-sized product portfolio in the United States. He works on a daily basis with International Press, Engineering, Marketing, Strategy, and Brand teams to ensure success in the segment for the BMW Group. John has been a Sales and Training Manager where he led a team of top-tier trainers to deliver industry-leading product positioning and sales training for BMW Center associates. He was responsible for the curriculum design, development, and training of associates in customer-facing roles at BMW Centers nationally. For some time, John was part of the BMW Global Leader Development Program designed to expose associates to various aspects of the global automotive business. This took him to Germany and China, where he worked closely with BMW spokespeople to launch new vehicles.

While a student at Notre Dame, John was a Web Journalist, responsible for writing content for specific pages of the website. He was also a member of the Boys Swim Team. After ND, John attended the University of Cincinnati where he studied Political Science and International Affairs.

Notre Dame is always happy to welcome back our alumni and we are proud of their many successes.
