11 business leaders to visit Cal Poly this fall

Eleven business leaders will be visiting Cal Poly this fall as part of the Orfalea College of Business’ Executives in Residence program.

The executives from the fields of finance, advertising, manufacturing, investment banking and technology will offer their insights to students and faculty.

More than half of the residents are Cal Poly alumni who moved on to successful careers.

The executives will have opportunities to give lectures, participate in student roundtables and attend class question-and-answer questions.

The group of visitors includes Mike Bickel, president of Rantec Power Systems; Rich Jacobsen, managing director of Greenhill & Co.; Al Moffatt, president and CEO of Worldwide Partners; and Jeff Henley, vice chair of Oracle.

Google’s Dolores Bernard and entrepreneur Barry Waitte already have visited campus and toured the Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship’s HotHouse and the Baker Center for Science and Mathematics.
