Huizenga Business School Celebrates Appointment of Dean

The H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship held a reception to celebrate the appointment of  J. Preston Jones, D.B.A., as dean of the business school.   The  reception followed the annual Board of Governors’ and Entrepreneurs’ Council meeting in the Huizenga Sales Institute’s Executive Conference Center.    Faculty members joined Board and Council members to congratulate the dean.

Dean Emeritus and Professor, Randolph Pohlman, Ph.D., welcomed guests with opening remarks, “Dr. Jones was at my side for the 14 years that I served as dean. Early on he was a recruiter and was instrumental in creating marketing and recruiting strategies.  He served as Associate  Dean for Academic Affairs, recruiting and supervising all faculty.   As Executive Associate Dean, he played a significant role in the decision making process and played an important part in the school’s success.  I am looking forward to Dr. Jones propelling the Huizenga Business School to great heights.”

Board of Governors Chairman, Paul Sallarulo added, “Dr. Jones has served the Huizenga Business School for many years and with the appointment of dean, he undertakes a position of recognition and responsibility.  It is my honor and certainly the Board of Governors’ to represent the business school under his vision and leadership.”

The reception was hosted by the Entrepreneurs’ Council.  Yolanda Harris, Council Chair said, “The Council looks forward to working with  Dr. Jones to create value for students and the Huizenga Business School family.”
