Canada Olympic House welcomes WelchGroup Consulting

The Canada Olympic House for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang will not only house Team Canada and all of their excited fans, but it will be opening its doors to two WelchGroup Consulting staff members as well!

Hye-min Lee, WelchGroup Consulting Analyst, emigrated from South Korea to Canada alone when she was just 15 years old. Now awaiting her Permanent Residency, Hye-min applied and was selected to volunteer in the Canada Olympic House. She will have the unique experience of volunteering as a Korean, for Canada, in her home country- a truly surreal opportunity. She is looking forward to meeting all of the athletes, their families, and their friends.

Cody Sorensen, Senior M&A Associate with WelchGroup Consulting, will also be attending the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, but not for the first time. A second generation Olympian, in 2014 Cody competed in Sochi as a member of the four-man bobsleigh team! While Cody traded his speedsuit for a business suit, all of his former teammates will be competing- they are currently ranked 1st and 2nd in the World. This will be Cody’s first time attending the Olympics as a spectator; he will be cheering on his friends from the Canada Olympic House.

Together, they will have the best of both worlds. While Cody will be navigating Hye-min through a unique Olympic experience, he will have the benefit of a tour guide to give him a truly authentic Korean experience.

Go Canada Go!
