Alumni Spotlight: Alfredo Gutierrez

“Our favorite destination is always the next one,” Alfredo Gutierrez says of the extensive travel he and his wife Luz Maria undertake. One of the trips Alfredo frequently makes is back to his graduate alma mater in Ann Arbor. As a former member of the Rackham Board of Governors and Dean’s Advisory Committee, Alfredo has been active in steering the enormous ship that administers graduate education across the University of Michigan campus.

Alumni Spotlight: Larry Crosby

Larry loves his job: ”Being a dean is a general management job. It has all of the functions that go into the president or a general manager of a business. I can apply everything I’ve learned in my Ph.D. and M.B.A. every day of the week. I make decisions around marketing, people, finance, strategy, IT, and really integrating all of that to put your best foot forward. That’s what you learn in graduate school - and I actually get to use it!”

Larry serves as the Dean of the Drucker School of Management in the Claremont Graduate University. “I feel very fortunate to be the dean here and have the honor and responsibility to help and manage that legacy into the 21st century.”

When you look around Juliette’s office, you see walls adorned with signed posters from the Detroit Jazz Festival, framed articles on Juliette from local publications, and inspiring artwork from local artists, all representing the deep level of engagement she has with the city and how much she loves it. They embody the work she does as the Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for MGM Grand Detroit. She says, “I am very front-facing; I deal with the public constantly and that makes this a very fun job. I get to do so much, meet so many people, and be involved in so many exciting projects.”
