Board of Advisors

The Center’s Board of Advisors consists of business leaders with extensive experience in international business and related fields.  Board members share the belief that international business provides tangible economic and community benefits, locally, state-wide, and nationally, and are dedicated to furthering international business education. 

Board members contribute to the Center in a number of ways, including committing their time, energy, expertise and their financial resources to helping the Center achieve its potential.  Our Board members help us determine our direction, develop our priorities, participate in the Center’s programs and other educational initiatives, and serve as our advocates in business, government, and educational circles. 

CGB Board of Advisors members serve two year renewable terms.  As you will see as you review the Board Members' biographies, each brings important and distinctive talents to the Center.  The Center for Global Business is enormously thankful to these talented and generous individuals for the many ways they have shaped our purpose and our impact.
