Rick Saverien(opens in new window), who graduated with a BA in Economics in 1988, is an expert system analyst(opens in new window) with Pacific Gas and Electric(opens in new window) in San Francisco, California.  “I have a particular area of support here at PGE and that's for our internal Supply Chain Operations,” Rick stated in a recent email.  “That includes procurement, logistics, and warehouse/inventory management.”

Inspired by “an Econ Energy class with Professor Gallo that I remember fondly,” he has been working for PG&E since 1990.

"Econ really kick started my interest in data, data mining, trend analysis and how data contributes to process change and process improvement. I've been part of numerous projects where we turn to data to drive process improvement. For me, this kind of attention to detail and analysis began in the Econ program at Chico.” (Last Updated 6/23/16)
