Luke Taplin ’20
Hometown: Aukland, New Zealand
Major: Finance with an Economics minor
Luke was recruited to play tennis at STAC. He studies Finance with plans to blend his interests in business and tennis into a future career. As a student, he’s been getting some solid experience in that arena and learning different aspects of the business through summer internships at Cliff Drysdale Tennis Management in Southampton, New York. “Each summer, I focus on a different area—management, marketing, and sports management,” he says, adding that he also built up his own small business teaching tennis. “I would give private and group club and home lessons with a clientele I developed over the three summers.”
