1. You’re a member of the MBA Advisory Board of The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University. What made you want to be involved with this university, and the business school specifically?
I worked for MacDermid Corporation in Waterbury, Connecticut for 10 years and was familiar with Post. Twenty years later one of my son’s high school classmates who was attending Post asked if I would consider getting involved in some way with the business school, because I was involved in business in the area and still lived nearby. I looked into this and saw the administration at Post was talking about new programs like Entrepreneurship, Innovation and other courses that didn’t exist at schools in Connecticut and across the Northeast. As a business person I had a hard time finding people that had these skills and would sometimes have to train them for a year or two in the topics Post wanted to educate them on. I thought that was wonderful and a great organization to be involved in.
