What’s something that not everyone knows about you?
In addition to my executive education background, I have extensive experience working in emerging markets, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. I was based in Prague for two years with the Foundation for a Civil Society, which emerged from Charter 77 New York after the fall of communism, and I was previously a speaker and faculty member at Wharton’s European, East Asian, and North American Forums as well as their programs in the Czech Republic, Poland, and China.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I reside in Lyme, NH, with my wife and two children, and I currently serve as a school board member there.
