A Letter from Thunderbird’s CEO and Director General
It is my honor and privilege to serve as the CEO and Director General of Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University. I realize these past few years have been turbulent at times, and I don’t doubt we will hit still a few more bumps, but I have the utmost confidence that Thunderbird is on its way to an exciting future. I am pleased to see that stability and enthusiasm have returned to campus – and across the globe.
As Thunderbird alumni, you represent a key voice and I consider you a trusted partner. I look forward to sharing more information about my vision for Thunderbird and listening to your input. I am confident that we share the same goals and ambition for the School.
This is actually my second opportunity to serve at Thunderbird. Early in my academic career I was part of the management faculty at Thunderbird. I went on to hold faculty and administrative positions at the Ivey Business School, INSEAD, and IMD. In fact, just like the many T-Birds I have met, my career has been focused on global issues, whether in life, research or teaching. The topics of globalization, global leadership, and responsible leadership are included in my 11 books, 40+ academic articles and 60+ case studies.
