Strommen Speakers Series

The Clair and Gladys Strommen Executive Speakers Series at Augsburg College, which brings local business leaders to campus to share insights and expertise, kicked off in November with John Taft, CEO at RBC Wealth Management, and his presentation on “Stewardship: Lessons Learned from the Lost Culture of Wall Street.” He made a compelling argument that Wall Street leaders and institutions experienced a failure to fulfill their stewardship responsibilities by putting their own interests before the interests of the constituencies they serve.

The series continued in February with Dave St. Peter, president of the Minnesota Twins. St. Peter, who joined the Twins in 1990 and was named president in 2002, talked about the baseball industry in his presentation, “The Business of Baseball.” St. Peter oversees the Twins’ day-to-day operations, strategic planning, and interaction with Major League Baseball.
