Smith Barney CEO coming to The Citadel
Sallie L. Krawcheck, chairman and chief executive officer of Smith Barney, will address the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 12 in McAlister Field House.
Krawcheck is visiting The Citadel as part of the college's Greater Issues Series, which aims to engage cadets' interest and knowledge in important topics of the day. Since it was established in 1954, the Greater Issues Series has brought presidents, heads of state, scholars, diplomats, journalists and distinguished business and military leaders to Charleston and The Citadel.
Krawcheck, a native of Charleston and graduate of Porter Gaud School, oversees global management of one of the four key businesses of parent company, Citigroup, with more than 500 offices worldwide and 23,000 employees. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Columbia University and has endowed at Porter Gaud the Krawcheck Scholarship, a needs-based scholarship awarding full tuition to students of exceptional aptitude.
In 2003, Krawcheck was named Fortune Magazine's Most Influential Person Under the Age of 40 and was again one of its "Most Powerful Women." In 2002, she was one of Time Magazine's "Global Business Influentials."
Greater Issues addresses are free and open to the public.
