Corporate Division

Chris Raboy ’25 | Chief Marketing Officer of Penn Student Agencies

Incoming FY24 Chief Executive Officer of Penn Student Agencies

 

Chris is a second-year at the School of Nursing studying nursing and nutrition. If he isn’t sending hundreds of emails to Penn faculty, he enjoys working out and bragging about his home state of California. He absorbed his twin in the womb, likes to complain about the weather, and enjoys humorous banter.

Chris will serve as PSA’s third Chief Executive since its creation in 2020. Chris started at PSA as a Delivery Associate in firstServices before becoming the PSA Marketing Director and soon after Chief Marketing Officer. 

Shayan Shivji ’25 | Chief Strategy Officer of Penn Student Agencies

Shayan is a second-year at Wharton studying economics with a concentration in finance. If he isn’t looking at budgets, you can find him losing money playing poker or winning chess games (he’s actually pretty good). He enjoys discussing any topic, and motivating/mentoring high schoolers. 

Dining & Hospitality Division

Eleni Pisinos ’24 | General Manager, Benny’s Diner

Eleni is a third-year in the College of Arts & Sciences studying political science and economics. Shortly after birth, her parents put her to work at her family’s restaurant business in Tennessee (born flipping patties).

She graduated high school in front of the pyramids of Giza and feels strongly about baristas deserving tips!

Williams Cafe

Sam Martinez ’25 | Sales & Purchasing Manager, Williams Cafe

 

Samantha is a second-year in the Vagelos MLS program studying biochemistry and neuroscience. While somehow having time outside of her intensive course load and job (we don’t know how), she is a cellist in the Symphony Orchestra and a finance committee member. Despite being a bad driver, she is prideful in her ownership of a gold 2-door mini cooper.

As a Philadelphia native and avid sports fan, if she isn’t climbing up greased light poles or destroying the city, she is probably learning a new language on Duolingo.

Valeria Arroyo | General Manager, Penn Closet

Valeria is a third-year at the College of Arts & Sciences studying Health and Societies. On-Campus, she is a member of MEChA and Cipactli Latinx Honor Society. Despite being from one of the hottest and driest states, she enjoys camping out in the Alaskan wilderness and taking in stray cats. Penn Frat parties are not up to her standard of being “lit.”
