Assistant Director, Program Delivery


Cecile Menard has been working with Tuck's executive education programs since 1978. Her major responsibility is to plan and manage logistics for Tuck Executive Education's Global Leadership 2030—a program consisting of three one-week modules delivered in three different global venues to participant teams from a consortium of corporations. Cecile spent 18 years coordinating the Tuck Executive Program, and she still manages several open and custom programs for corporate clients. She graduated from Granite State College with an associate in science in business studies.

Tuck is a place where the business of learning is personal. What does that mean to you?
One of the great things about working at Tuck is that we have frequent opportunities to meet people  -- students and executives -- from around the world.  In my role in Executive Education, I personally enjoy taking the time to help foreign visitors feel welcome in this environment and to try to bridge any cultural gaps to ensure that their experience here is maximized.

What do you enjoy most about living in the Upper Valley region?
I find that the Upper Valley region is very similar to Tuck – a close-knit, caring community of people who work together and are always available to help each other.  As a long-time resident of the UV, I have come to appreciate our classic campus, the natural beauty that comes with each season, and the learned art of driving in winter!

What are a few of your hobbies?
In my spare time I enjoy trying new recipes – especially appetizers and desserts, gardening, and exploring New England.
