sales & negotiations center advisory board

Members of our Sales Advisory Council in the Scott College of Business serve as advocates for our sales program, role models for our students, and advisors for the strategic direction of the Sales and Negotiations Center. They also provide financial support for our sales educational efforts. In return, each participant on our Sales Advisory Council benefits from: exceptional opportunities to recruit outstanding entry level sales talent, recognition for involvement in our efforts to develop the next generation of sales leaders, and excellent networking opportunities with other highly successful sales executives.
