Miles White

Splits to Spins: Value and Complexity

9/25/17 - Creating value in the midst of constant complexity means being many things: sculptor of corporate strategy and culture, deal hunter, and ultimate decider on business acquisitions, splits and spins.

Recognized for nine years running as one of Barron’s “World’s Best CEOs”, Miles White shared leadership lessons from 19 years at the helm of Abbott, from the challenges of balancing competing constituencies to the critical role of a great C-suite team. Dean Sally Blount ’92 facilitated this Brave Leader discussion, made possible by the generosity of Donna and Lloyd Morgan, BBA '62 & KSM ’63.
