Wake Forest Fills Key Ethics Post

HannahSoon after Steve Reinemund agreed to become the Dean of the Wake Forest University Schools of Business he declared that ethics would be a critical component of the program under his watch. He wanted ethics to serve as an underlying theme in every course, and he wanted to distinguish Wake Forest with a reputation for producing ethical graduates.

Dean Reinemund took a major step toward completing that vision on Tuesday, naming Colonel Sean T. Hannah (Ret.) to lead ethics programming and initiatives. A 26-year U.S. Army veteran and former director of the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic at West-Point, Hannah (right) will become a professor of management and the J. Tylee Wilson Chair in Business Ethics.

“We are fortunate to have someone with such extraordinary experience to provide direction and insight to help carry out our mission to prepare passionate, ethical business leaders who gain results with integrity,” Dean Reinemund said in a press release announcing Hannah's hiring.

Hannah holds a PhD in Management from the University of Nebraska, Master of Business Administration and Master of Public Administration degrees from Syracuse University, a Master of Military Science from the Marine Corps University, and a Bachelor of Political Science degree from California State University. He has taught courses in ethics, leadership, character development, and change management to both military and civilian audiences. He has also served as a consultant and training leader for corporate executives.
