Please join me in welcoming George Mandarakas to the Corporate Relations team. George’s first day will be Monday February 26th. As a CR Director, George will cover the College of Engineering and engage corporations in an effort to further the mission of the University. A 2009 graduate with a BS in Chemical Engineering, George spent the better part of his career working at BASF, the largest chemical producer in the world. For the last 6 years, he was tasked with directing innovation efforts with startups, universities, and federal agencies, so he understands our game. Along the way, he also received his MBA from the IE Business School in Madrid, Spain. George has significant international experience as well, which we hope to leverage as we build out our international corporate strategy.
George and his wife Stephanie, originally from London England, will be relocating to our area from New Jersey. Please stop by and say hello to George as he arrives back home at his alma mater.
