Westgren to Missouri

I’m delighted to announce that Randy Westgren, organizational scholar, academic entrepreneur, bon vivant, and all-around great guy — and, most important, former O&M guest blogger — has been named McQuinn Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership at the University of Missouri. I’ve greatly enjoyed interacting with Randy over the years from his perch in Urbana-Champaign and am looking forward to having him just down the hallway.

As McQuinn Professor Randy will also direct the McQuinn Center, which was launched in 2004 under the leadership of Bruce Bullock. The Center is creating an innovative and unusual program to research and teach the “functional” aspects of entrepreneurship, with particular emphasis on firm organization and strategy and applications to food, agriculture, biotechnology, natural resources, and rural development.

Please join me in congratulating Randy on his new post!

    Congratulations on being appointed to this prestigious Chair, Randy!

    With folks like you and Peter already there, Missouri has a chance of being a top 5 Entrepreneurship Center with a couple of strategic hires. Hope you all achieve much!

    P.S.: Good luck with the NCAA football Championship this year at Missouri.
