Caroll Neubauer, chairman and CEO of B. Braun of America and B. Braun Medical, Inc., will headline the next installment of the Division of Business’ Executive Forum series, set to be held Tuesday, February 17, in the Gambet Center for Business and Healthcare’s Barbara Walker Breslin Auditorium.
Admittance to the Executive Forum is by invitation only.
Neubauer (right), who has earned law degrees from The Albert Ludwigs University Freiburg, Germany, and Georgetown University, is the chairman of the German American Chamber of Commerce New York and is a member of the President’s Advisory Group of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“He’s dynamic. He runs one of the most important companies in the Lehigh Valley and they’re one of the biggest companies in the world in their space. They have an important place in the world because they save lives,” Assistant Professor in the Division of Business and former research and consulting firm CEO, Dr. Steven Aukers, said about scheduling Neubauer for the forum.
Select students will be invited to attend the interactive event, which will feature a conversational segment between Aukers and Neubauer, as well as student question and answer and informal mingling time-allotments.
In addition to business majors, nursing and physician assistant students, who have been training with B. Braun equipment in their skills labs, will be invited as well. B. Braun has donated this equipment to the University in a partnership.
The series is designed as an opportunity to spotlight exemplary leaders of locally based companies to provide students with a concrete model of success to follow outside of classroom learning. This will be the second annual Executive Forum, with last year’s event featuring David DeCampli, Chief Transition Officer of PP&L Corporation.
“We’re very good about teaching students about, ‘Well, here’s accounting, here’s economics.’ But what is it like to lead? What is it like to work your way up? What is it like to make strategic decisions? So I wanted to have more of a peer-to-peer discussion and have the audience involved,” Aukers said. “He and I will have a discussion and everyone kind of gets to dip in and watch how that works: what two CEO’s think about and talk about.”
