Huntsman School Interactions

Entrepreneur Leadership Series - Wednesday, February 13, 2013


Douglas Anderson is a professor and the first dean of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. Prior to becoming dean, he was co-founder and managing partner of the Boston-based Center for Executive Development (CED), a company that for 20 years was at the forefront of its field, offering customized executive education and guidance with large-scale, strategic change initiatives in the world's most complex organizations. His company has served many Fortune 200 companies, including AT&T, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Lucent Technologies, Merrill Lynch, Florida Power & Light, PricewaterhouseCoopers, British Petroleum, Marsh, Random House, Reader's Digest, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, United Technologies and the United States Internal Revenue Service. He worked with Lee Iacocca when his company was hired by Chrysler. At the invitation of the senior partners of PriceWaterhouse-US and PriceWaterhouse-Europe, he served as outside chairman of the partnership’s Task Force on Governance.

At USU Dr. Anderson earned a bachelor's degree in economics and political science, magna cum laude, in 1973 and a master's degree in economics in 1975. He earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1979, where he first taught in the Economics Department and then for 10 years was on the faculty of the Harvard Business School. He also earned an MPA from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard in 1976.

From 1981 through 1983, Dr. Anderson interrupted his academic career. He first served in Washington D.C. as deputy counselor to the Secretary of the Treasury, where he provided support for the Cabinet Council on Economic Affairs and the National Productivity Advisory Committee. From 1982 to 1983, he served as a director in corporate strategy development for Bendix Corporation in Southfield, Michigan, and as executive secretary of the Allied/Bendix Joint Merger Management Task Force.

A native of Logan, he has stayed actively involved with USU over the years, serving as a member and vice chair of the USU Board of Trustees, as a board member of the USU Research Foundation and as a member of the Old Main Society. He has also represented the university on the board of the Utah Foundation. As an undergraduate he was honored with the Robins Award for his work as editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper.

Dr. Anderson and his wife, Katherine (Wirthlin Cannon), are the parents of seven children and sixteen grandchildren.
