Derek  Walker

Derek Walker joined AETHOS Consulting Group as an Associate in 2015. Prior to AETHOS, Derek spent consecutive summers working at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Shake Shack. He is a graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. “What led me to AETHOS is my continuous desire to learn and grow. Bill Gates put it best: ‘As soon as you close your mind to the possibility of another great reality, you are closing yourself off to other greater opportunities that lie waiting for you.’ During my time at Cornell University, I was guided by his advice. Beyond a degree in Hospitality Administration, I graduated with a minor in Real Estate, a concentration in Law, and work experience in both the hotel and restaurant sector. AETHOS provides me with the opportunity to extend this belief beyond just myself. I have the privilege of helping individuals realize their potential and take steps towards a life full of continuous learning.

Born and raised in the heart of California, I am eager to embrace and explore the diversity New York City has to offer. I have a passion for art history, architecture, and world politics and am fascinated by campaign strategy and outcomes.”
