Personal Statement

Personal Statement

In over 25 years in business with companies like AT&T and Ernst & Young I have become convinced that the greatest value in organizations is created by working effectively through people. I entered academics to pursue research on how leadership creates value for stakeholders and to help students appreciate the importance of the human aspects of business value creation.
