Chair of Finance


Sam Pun - HBS

Originally from sunny Los Angeles, Sam has now fully adapted to life on the East Coast. After high school, Sam moved across the country to attend Johns Hopkins University where, spurred by his love of numbers and finance, he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in Applied Mathematics & Economics. Post-graduation, while working at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and J.P. Morgan, Sam was exposed to various fields including Investment Banking, Sales & Trading, Equity Research, Hedge Funds, and Investment Management. Taking a break from the hustle & bustle of Wall Street, Sam later returned to Harvard University to complete his Master’s degree.

As an American-born Chinese, Sam's passion lies in inter-connecting Eastern and Western cultures, two cultures he has always kept close to his heart. Growing up, Sam spent his summers teaching English to Chinese students in Guangzhou and published a book on American student life. In conjunction with Sam’s local outreach, his goal with Harvard Graduate Council is to help create greater interconnectivity both within the 12 Harvard schools as well as bridge geographical and socioeconomic gaps, helping international student assimilate to the American school system and creating an environment conducive to students fulfilling their potentials and achieving sustainable success.
