It was Pepperdine’s long-standing reputation as a top-ranked institution anchored in the stewardship of values-centered leadership and academic excellence that initially drew me to my role as Dean of the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School. Through working with Graziadio’s exceptional students and devoted faculty and staff, I continuously deepen my understanding of the school’s mission and witness the way in which each member honors their responsibility to serve as transformational leaders within the classroom and beyond.
I look forward to working in close partnership with each of you to achieve the strategic objectives and ascend to greater heights of excellence as a university!
