MBA, Management, Kennesaw State University

BA, Accounting, University of South Florida


I currently serve as the Dean of the College of Business and teach various courses in our business programs. Freed-Hardeman is blessed with wonderful students and interacting with them is my favorite part of the institution. 

My wife Carolyne and kids Josh and Hannah moved to West Tennessee in 2006 when I became Assistant Professor of Management. Prior to this, I worked for Eckerd Drug Stores for twenty-three years. Upon my departure from Eckerd, I served as Vice President of Purchasing and Merchandise Administration. My experience in administration has proven very beneficial in my role as dean. In the classroom, students enjoy and benefit from taking the business principles they are being taught and then being able to apply the principles using actual stories from the workplace. This approach enhances learning outcomes and is effective in preparing students for their business careers. 

My education background includes a BBA in Accounting from the University of South Florida and an MBA from Kennesaw State University.
