SUBJECT: David Ikenberry named dean of the Leeds School of Business
I am pleased to announce that David L. Ikenberry, associate dean in the College
of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has been named
dean of the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder,
effective February 14, pending approval by the CU Board of Regents.
Dean Ikenberry replaces Interim Dean Manuel Laguna. I want to thank Dr. Laguna
for his service as interim dean since November, 2009, in the wake of the
departure of Dean Dennis Ahlburg, who left the university to accept the
presidency of Trinity University in San Antonio. Dean Laguna's service has
provided stable and steady leadership for the Leeds School since that time. I
also wish to thank the search committee chaired by Associate Vice Chancellor
for Faculty Affairs Bill Kaempfer for the hard work of delivering such a fine
candidate to us.
David Ikenberry impressed the committee and me with his vision and desire to
take the Leeds School of Business to all new levels of success. His leadership
at the University of Illinois as associate dean, and his recognized excellence
in the classroom as a professor, give him the kind of student-centered
perspective that will inspire our faculty, staff and students.
Since 1990, Dr. Ikenberry has held faculty and administrative appointments at
Rice University, the University of Washington and the University of Illinois.
In his present position, he oversees degree and non-degree executive education
for the University of Illinois' College of Business. He teaches investments and
corporate finance and has been recognized for his excellent work in the
classroom as a professor. In 2002, Business Week named him one of the best
instructors in the nation. He has also been honored with teaching awards during
his tenure at both Illinois and Rice University.
He earned his doctorate degree at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign in 1990, his master's degree at Northwestern University in
1985 and his bachelor's degree at The Pennsylvania State University in 1983.
