About the Speaker Series

The Kogod School of Business is privileged to have the Alan Meltzer CEO Leadership Speaker Series as a signature event for our students. The series brings top business leaders to campus to provide insight into practical and strategic business issues.

Through this annual event, students are able to gain a better understanding of the viewpoint from the corner office. C-level leadership, many of whom are Kogod alumni, often use this opportunity to share with students their own path to success and the triumphs and failures they have experienced along the way. This two-part series helps to illuminate the path to leadership for graduate and undergraduate business students. Each event includes an opportunity for students to meet and network with the CEO following their remarks.

Kogod alumni and American University trustee Alan Meltzer generously makes this annual series possible. While a student at AU, Meltzer was a student athlete and remains a strong supporter of the wrestling team. As a business leader, Meltzer is recognized as a titan of the insurance industry, founding the Meltzer Group in Bethesda, MD in the early 1980s, after more than a decade of top performance with MassMutual.
