Brett Biggs, executive vice president and chief financial officer for Walmart, will be coming to campus to speak in the Fall 2016 Distinguished Speakers Speaker Series.
Biggs graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harding University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and later received a MBA with Honors from Oklahoma State University. He is responsible for accounting and control, corporate strategy and development, business planning and analysis, internal auditing, treasury, tax, global shared services and several other key areas to the company.
The College of Business Administration’s Lytle Center for Faith and Development will host Briggs in the Hunter Welcome Center Oct. 25 at 11:45 am. COBA offers one hundred free tickets to their students. Tickets can be purchased online and charged to student accounts. For any professor who plans to attend, tickets are $20 and will be charged to the department.
M.C. Jennings, recruiter and marketing manager of COBA, said the Lytle Center for Faith and Development recently changed the program, only allowing one Distinguished Speaker a year. Jennings said the center is working on a new conference, called the Entrust 2017 program, which will bring young alumni ages 35-45 to campus to be mentored by older CEOs in the CEO forum.
The center will also continue Leadership Summit, a January short course that takes place during winter break in the mountains of Colorado January 7-13, 2107.
“We are fortunate to be able to bring great speakers like Brett Biggs to our campus for students, faculty/staff and the Abilene community to hear,” Jennings said. “These are great opportunities for the ACU community.”
