Date of Release: April 23, 2014

Husson University’s College of Business announced today that Dan Hutchins, a partner at PwC in Boston, will participate in a lively exchange of ideas and insights as part of the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series on Monday, April 28th from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business on the institution’s Bangor campus.

“With more than 30 years of professional experience at one of the nation’s largest professional services firms, Dan’s perspectives on leadership, business practices and customer service will be of significant interest to our students,” said College of Business Dean Marie Hansen. “He’s a great example of how far a Husson University degree can take you.”
