The Executive-in-Residence program, with
a generous donation from Omnova Solutions, was launched Spring 2005.
Three executives participated in
the program, and students and faculty were able to learn global business
and current textile information and expertise – a necessity for
competing in today’s (and tomorrow’s) global marketplace!
Dr. Fred H. Gallasch Jr., a longtime General Motors executive, shared experiences in new product development, marketing, and leadership with students and faculty. Fred’s involvement with the Chevrolet Corvette was of particular interest to the students, and during his presentation to the graduate students was able to share some of the strategic decisions required for executives in the transportation industry.
