CEO@Smith: Past Events


Tools for Success from the Stanley Black & Decker CEO
Stanley Black & Decker President and CEO James Loree’s tools for success can be stripped down to a few simple rules: Be innovative, never stop learning, do the right thing and be forward-thinking. Loree told his story of growing Stanley Black & Decker, detailed his goals for the future, and talked about being a good corporate citizen to an audience of students, faculty, staff and guests on Nov. 6 at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. Loree was on campus for the fall 2018 installment of the CEO @ Smith speaker series, a conversation moderated by Maryland Smith Dean Alexander Triantis.

CEO@Smith: Deloitte CEO, Cathy Engelbert
Many CEOs sleep with their smartphones on the nightstand next to their beds. Some even sleep with it in their beds. Deloitte CEO, Cathy Engelbert prefers to keep hers downstairs at night. "Disconnect yourself every once in a while," she told an overflow crowd on March 14, 2018, during the CEO @ Smith speaker series at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. “You work hard, but you need to find time to take care of yourself.”
