From Platoon Leader to Business Operations Manager — A Day in the Life of Tunde Osilaja

William “Tunde” Osilaja joined Success Academy as a Business Operations Manager (BOM) in September 2016 at our Bronx 3 Middle School. BOMs report directly to our Principals and serve as key members of a school’s leadership team. BOMs are responsible for managing all aspects of the day-to-day operations at our schools. Tunde graduated from West Point in 2011 and served for five years in the United States Army. In the Army, Tunde served as a platoon leader in charge of over 30 soldiers. After completing his military service, Tunde returned to West Point as an admissions officer, guiding students through the college application process. Success Academy offered the ideal opportunity to work in education and put to use the operations and leadership skills he gained in the Army.

On October 20, 2017, we accompanied Tunde as he went about his day as a Business Operations Manager. Join us and learn more about how Tunde impacts scholar lives every day.
