Money Named Director of Whitmore Global Management Center

PROVO, Utah – Jun 25, 2014 – The Marriott School of Management recently appointed Bruce Money as the director of the Whitmore Global Management Center, succeeding Ervin Black after his yearlong tenure. Money will assume his new position July 1.

“Bruce is a wonderful administrator, and he will bring a discipline and a work ethic to the center that will drive its progress in the next few years,” says Lee Perry, Marriott School dean. “We are thrilled for him to be the new director of the Whitmore Global Management Center.”

Money, who was previously serving as the chair of the business management department, has been at the Marriott School since 2004. He is the Fred Meyer Professor of Marketing and International Business and researches international marketing and the effects and measurement of national culture. Money has received two outstanding professor awards while at Brigham Young University and serves on the editorial board of several international business journals. As a marketing professor he stays involved with international business by taking students on study abroad trips every year.

“I never get tired of seeing students discover the world,” Money says. “I’m quite enthusiastic about international issues so I am excited to be part of the Whitmore Center.”

Money succeeds Ervin Black, who recently took a position as the chair of the accounting department at the University of Oklahoma. Black’s leadership helped the center establish its first discipline-based study abroad in partnership with the accounting program, inspiring more trips that focus on emphases of study rather than regions of the world. He also spearheaded the development of the global business and literacy minor, which gives students a background in business and a foreign culture.

Perry says he appreciates the work each director has contributed to build up the Whitmore Center, and he looks forward to seeing it continue to grow and develop.

“Erv and the previous director, Lee Radebaugh, were visionary in their goals,” Perry says. “The work they did provides a solid base for Bruce to build upon as he takes leadership of the center.”

The Marriott School is located at Brigham Young University, the largest privately owned, church-sponsored university in the United States. The school has nationally recognized programs in accounting, business management, public management, information systems, and entrepreneurship. The school’s mission is to prepare men and women of faith, character and professional ability for positions of leadership throughout the world. Approximately 3,000 students are enrolled in the Marriott School’s graduate and undergraduate programs.
