On Monday, July 14th, Dr. Peter Brews, dean of the Darla Moore School of Business at USC will speak to the club.  Dr. Brews  brings more than 25 years of international business education experience to the University of South Carolina and a keen interest in ensuring the relevancy of business education in the 21st century.

The 57-year-old South Africa native most recently was on the faculty at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. He started his career in banking and finance and later earned two doctorates in business administration from the University of the Witwatersrand and the University of Pittsburgh.

He has written extensively about strategic management for Internet-generation companies and has developed a deep understanding of the struggle for productivity worldwide.

Brews is an avid exerciser who counts soccer and cricket among his former athletic past times; he also is a self-taught guitarist.

On the job since mid-January, Brews plans to invest the coming semester in assessing the Moore School’s strengths and opportunities for advancement before announcing new initiatives.

Please make plans to attend Rotary on Monday.  We encourage you to bring a guest or two so they can see what Columbia Rotary is all about.  Hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
