Yesterday, the UC Regents approved the appointment of Richard K. Lyons to the position of Dean at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Prior to his appointment, Lyons served as a professor at the school, and as the chief learning officer of Goldman Sachs, New York. As the chief learning officer, he directed the group in charge of developing leadership in Goldman Sach’s managing directors and partners.
Lyons stated that he “learned that you can’t overestimate the importance of great people in building great firms. And that’s the business we’re in here at Haas.”
Congratulations to Dean Lyons!
