Top CEOs to Share Business Insight, Success Secrets at ‘CEO Evolution’ Program in Stamford

Three exceptional CEOs will reveal the secrets to success at the second annual “CEO Evolution” at 6 p.m. June 15 at the University of Connecticut’s Stamford campus.

The program is presented by Citrin Cooperman, the University of Connecticut School of Business and the Fairfield County Business Journal.

The panel will include:

  • Anne M. Mulcahy, chair of the Board of Trustees for Save the Children and former Chair and CEO of Xerox Corp. She will discuss how she transformed Xerox and, in the process, broke the glass ceiling.
  • Denis J. Nayden, managing partner of Oak Hill Capital Partners and former chair and CEO of GE Capital. Nayden will discuss how he managed GE Capital’s 20 companies in 35 countries with 90,000 employees and $555 billion in assets.
  • Tom Kallish, CEO and Founder of Tommie Copper apparel. Kallish will talk about how a serious personal accident led to the creation of a successful company.

The program will be moderated by Mark. L. Fagan, managing partner at Citrin Cooperman, one of Fairfield County’s leading accounting, tax and consulting firms. He is also a CPA and a management columnist.

John A. Elliott, dean of the UConn School of Business, said he expects the event to be an exciting opportunity to shape both contemporary business leaders’ and students’ thoughts on managerial best practices.

“Last year set the stage for this important series, and I look forward to another valuable discussion with a great panel,” Elliott said. “At UConn, we not only teach management but we also engage with managers to create a dialogue that benefits all of us. This evening is another investment in that dynamic relationship.”
