Following the announcement by George P. Tsetsekos, Ph.D., that he is not seeking a third consecutive term as dean of LeBow College of Business, Frank Linnehan, Ph.D., professor of management and vice dean of Drexel LeBow, has been named interim dean of the College, effective Sept. 1.
In an email to the University community, President John A. Fry and Provost Mark Greenberg wrote: “In his 15 years at Drexel, Frank has played a significant role in the academic and administrative direction of LeBow College. He led two initiatives to revise the MBA and undergraduate curricula, and introduced the use of electronic portfolios for business students. He also played an important role in the development of Drexel’s Sacramento Center for Graduate Studies, and last year served admirably as interim director of the Center during the search for a new executive director.
“Frank’s research has focused on workforce diversity and adult-youth mentoring. His successful academic career draws on 17 years of private sector experience for national corporations including General Electric.
Frank will provide experienced leadership and ensure a smooth transition for LeBow College as Dr. George Tsetsekos concludes 10 years of dedicated service, and we undertake a national search for a new dean. Frank and George will work together closely on the details of succession.
“We’re grateful that Frank has agreed to serve, and confident that LeBow College will continue to successfully pursue its goals under his leadership. We will keep the LeBow and Drexel communities updated as the search for a new dean moves forward.”
