So for things look mighty excellent. Everything seems to be going in the right direction for you. I see basically four or five things you can do in the next two years that will boost your profile.

1. Actually get that 720+ on your GMAT :)
2. Get promoted
3. Get your firm to sponsor your MBA
4. Get at least one major leadership responsibility/achievement - like running a fundraiser with 600 people and collecting 10 million dollars, or finally launching that startup you always dreamed about, etc.
5. Get politically involved (become elected to something, participate in a campaign, whatever)

These are the main areas for improvement that I can see for you over the next years.

Hope this gets that brain-juice flowing!
