Thomson CFO Lectures at Executive-in-Residence ProgramContact: Bob Howe
Robert D. Daleo, CBA ’72, executive vice president and chief financial officer for the Thomson Corporation, one of the world’s leading information companies, hosted two class lectures with a group of Fordham College of Business Administration students at the University’s Rose Hill Campus on Monday, Nov. 20.
Daleo was a guest lecturer through the Executive-in-Residence program, which brings successful business leaders who are Fordham alumni back to campus to teach classes and to help strengthen their ties to the Fordham community. The program began in the spring of 2005 as an initiative of the President’s Council, a group of 100 of the University’s most committed and accomplished alumni. Daleo’s visit was sponsored by Donna Rapaccioli, Ph.D., interim dean of the College of Business Administration.
Daleo gave presentations in the Flom Auditorium to a total of 120 CBA juniors and seniors, on achieving long-term success in changing markets. Following his lectures, Daleo had lunch with Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham; Howard Tuckman, Ph.D., dean of the Graduate School of Business; Rapaccioli; and Al Checcio, vice president of Development and University Relations.
Daleo, a member of the boards of Thomson and Equifax, one of the leading consumer credit reporting firms, recently met with U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson to discuss corporate accountability law modifications regarding the Sarbanes Oxley Act. Daleo was also featured on the cover of the November issue of Financial Executive
magazine. He sits on the executive committee of the President’s Council at Fordham.
