Nathaniel Torres currently works as Johnson & Johnson’s Director of National Accounts, leading account management efforts for Prime Therapeutics and Humana while representing J&J’s pharmaceuticals portfolio to ensure coverage for their products. Mr. Torres began his work with J&J after meeting a Janssen representative at TCNJ’s career fair, and he has remained with the company for over 23 years.

While a TCNJ student, Nathaniel was a general body and board member of Union Latina and pledged Lambda Theta Phi, the school’s Latin fraternity. As a member of these organizations, Nathaniel collaborated with several other Greek organizations and student associations such as the Black Student Union (BSU) and Asian American Association (AAA).

Mr. Torres says his TCNJ education “helped me tremendously because of… the school’s reputation for the academic prowess of its students. It helped validate me with potential employers because they knew TCNJ students were top notch.” More specifically, Nathaniel mentions Dr. Tucci and Dr. Prensky as particularly formative influences in his college career: “[they] were the most memorable for me because of the foundational knowledge that they instructed and the creative simulations in their class that helped with the learning.” Also influential was TCNJ’s Educational Opportunity Fund in the Summer of 1997, which helped Mr. Torres “familiarize myself with the school, take summer classes, receive foundational tips for success in college, and most importantly meet classmates that have become lifelong friends and family. I credit a lot of my success to EOF and the foundation it helped me build in terms of my knowledge but most importantly my confidence.”

When asked what advice he has for current students, Nathaniel offered several helpful tips. One is to ensure that your social media posts are responsible and/or private. “I can’t tell you the amount of folks that I have disqualified as candidates for roles because their social media posts were not aligned to the values we espouse at J&J,” he said. His other advice was to “provide concrete examples on your resume and future interviews that highlight that impact that you made at that role” and “maximize opportunities to strengthen your oral and written communication (whether through classes, books, societies) as you will definitely need it to better articulate your ideas.”

Beyond his professional life, Nathaniel is a proud #GirlDad of his 10 year-old daughter and is constantly striving to be a better father and husband. He has a pet golden doodle that he trains regularly and has recently begun learning classical guitar and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
