Deloitte CEO to Speak at Rutgers CEO Lecture Series

Deloitte CEO Gregory Weaver will speak at Rutgers Business School Newark/New Brunswick today, October 28, as part of Rutgers’ CEO Lecture Series. Weaver is a 1975 alumnus of the Rutgers MBA in professional accounting. His company, Deloitte & Touche, is an auditing, accounting, and risk advisory subsidiary of Deloitte LLP. He will speak about professional excellence.

In an interview with Rutgers before his appearance, Weaver had a crucial piece of advice for young business people: “Taking advantage of opportunities is very important. Often, you don’t recognize what opportunity really is. I know my inclination was to generally say no to things that actually had the biggest impact on my career.”

Rutgers established the CEO Lecture Series to allow students to encounter the ideas of leading chief executive officers and their insights about business. Many of the event’s previous speakers have been alumni of Rutgers. Past speakers include Anne Whitaker, the leader of North American business for the pharmaceutical giant Sonofi-Aventis, and Sheri McCoy, the former Johnson & Johnson executive who is now the CEO of Avon. Earlier this year, the president of U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management, Keith Banks, spoke as part of the series.

The CEO Lecture Series is only open to Rutgers students, faculty, staff, alumni, and board members. However, if you don’t fall into any of those categories, don’t be too disappointed–the CEO Lecture Series is an ongoing series and you may get the opportunity to participate one day. . .as a Rutgers MBA student!
