Leaders in Industry Event

On Tuesday, October 12, our Leaders in Industry series presents the "Inside Track" with President Stephen J. Friedman and Ret. General Charles Krulak, 31st Commandant of the Marine Corps. This one-on-one conversation in the Schimmel Theater at One Pace Plaza will address "The Changing Face of Warfare."

Highly decorated during his years in the military, General Krulak served 35 years in the U.S. Marine Corps. His last position was as Commandant of the Marine Corps and as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Following two tours of duty in Vietnam, he held a variety of command and staff positions, including deputy director of the White House Military Office, Commanding General, 6th Marine Expeditionary Brigade during Desert Storm, Commanding General, Marine Corps Combat Development Command, and Commanding General, Marine Forces Pacific.

Upon his retirement from the Marine Corps, General Krulak joined MBNA America Bank as Vice Chairman and Chief Administrative Officer and subsequently as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MBNA Europe Bank, Ltd. He subsequently returned to the United States and served as Vice Chairman, MBNA America Bank as Head of Corporate Development, Mergers and Acquisitions before retiring from MBNA in June, 2005.

We hope that you'll join us for this evening of insightful conversation and an intimate look at the concerns the United States Military is facing in Afghanistan and around the world. To reserve your space at the preceding Alumni cocktail reception and your seat in the Schimmel Theater, please go to
