The first day of our Spring Quarter class: The CEO and Board Leadership

The first day of our Spring Quarter class: The CEO and Board Leadership

April 9, 2019

This Insiders View of Corporate Governance taught to Second Year MBA’s at the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington.

Our first distinguished guest speaker was Mike Garvey founder of Saltchuk Resources. Mike described early days of the company thru 20 plus years of huge growth and then passing the management to members of his family. The success of this transition is nothing short of remarkable. A real tribute to Mike and his family. Saltchuk is one of the largest privately held companies in the Pacific Northwest. The students were really engaged and asked Mike dozens of provocative question. A great start to the quarter of teaching for Eileen and I. Great Students, incredible speakers coming and lots of teaching moments.
