Bob Holland, a managing partner at Essex Lake Group LLC, will visit the campus in November as part of the Wake Forest University Schools of Business fall speaker series.
Holland is also a corporate director at Essex, a profit-enhancement firm with offices in China, India, London, Madrid and New York. His background also includes posts as a general partner with PE firm Cordova, Smart & Williams; CEO of WorkPlace Integrators; and CEO of Ben & Jerry's. Holland joined Ben & Jerry's in 1995 as the Vermont ice cream maker was moving to a more mainstream company from the cult-like firm that existed before.
He also serves on the boards of Carver Federal Bank, Lexmark International Inc., Neptune Orient Lines Ltd. and Yum! Brands Inc.
Holland will speak on Nov. 11 from 4-5 pm in Room 1312 at Worrell Professional Center. We will provide more details as we learn more about his topic.
