Salisbury University’s most recent Perdue Executive Leadership lecturer is no stranger to campus: Jim Perdue, chairman of Perdue Farms, Inc., delivered the talk during the 30th anniversary year of the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business, SU’s first named school, created with a multimillion-dollar endowment from his late father, Frank.
Perdue, who earned his own M.B.A. from SU, leads Perdue Farms, one of the world’s leading food and agricultural businesses, employing more than 20,000 associates and serving customers in over 40 countries. Perdue School students and others listened eagerly as Perdue discussed the company’s history, strategy and vision, as well as its four pillars: quality, integrity, teamwork and stewardship. Dean Christy Weer said SU was honored to have Perdue as a speaker in the series.
