Executive Steering Committee


Dear Corporate Partners,


I am honored to serve as Chairman of the Executive Committee for Corporate Partners this year. The Executive Committee is the representative body of the larger membership of Corporate Partners – the doorway to corporate participation in the various programs and opportunities offered through The Paul Merage School of Business.

The Executive Committee will work directly with the Interim Dean and the Executive Director of Corporate Relations to identify and examine current issues relating to the quality and future growth of The Paul Merage School of Business and Corporate Partners. This committee assists in identifying new firms that can benefit from a partnership with The Paul Merage School of Business through a Corporate Partner membership. The committee also supports the School and provides a source of linkage to the business community. I look forward to your support in extending the success of the Corporate Partners and The Paul Merage School of Business.


The School’s new flagship building is set for completion Fall Quarter 2014.  The building is a tangible tribute to the great things we are accomplishing together – assuring the integrity of the educational process and its relevancy to the global economy.  We are particularly grateful to the Corporate Partners who have recognized the value of what the Merage School does and have already generously committed their support to the building project – Emulex, Global Benefits Group, Microsemi Corporation, Precept, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Rohl LLC, Sage, Taco Bell, Union Bank and Virtium Technology


I would like to encourage the rest of our Partners to participate in naming the Corporate Partners Executive Boardroom and be a part of this building as a legacy of excellence!
