JHJ Business Advisory Council
Members of the Jesse H. Jones School of Business Advisory Council play an important
role in the strategy and operations of the business school. The council members help
to serve the mission of the School to transform students into leaders in the global
market place. They provide counsel to the dean on strategic, operational and financial
direction for the school. The BAC helps to leverage the School’s on-campus and off-campus
efforts by generously sharing their time, talent, networks and economic support. John
Guess, III serves as chair lending his leadership, expertise and advice to the council
to support the JHJ School to become a model twenty-first century urban center for
business education, learning, research and service.
The 33 men and women on the council are each appointed to three-year terms and are
selected for their demonstrated interest in and concern for the future of management
education and business leadership development. Their commitment to the well-being
and advancement of the School is evidenced by participation in its activities, knowledge
and understanding of its vision, mission and objectives are important to their selection
to serve. They are private and public sector leaders in small and large firms from
the United States and around the world, and offer a wide array of perspectives and
experiences to share.
We greatly appreciate their dedication and service to the JHJ School.
