Join GW alumni, students, faculty and staff for the 14th Annual Robert P. Maxon Lecture. This year’s lecture will be delivered by Washington and Northern Virginia Business leader Hossein Fateh, BBA, ’90; MS, ‘97.
Fateh is co-founder, president, CEO and director of DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc., a Washington, D.C.-based owner, developer, operator and manager of wholesale data centers and a real estate investment trust (REIT). In 2007, Fateh successfully led the company through its initial public offering, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $678 million.
The Maxon lectureship was established through Dorothy Maxon’s endowment gift to GWSB in honor of her husband, Robert P. Maxon, BA, ’48. Maxon served his country in WWII and went on to serve in several executive positions for Mobil, retiring as general manager of worldwide corporate public relations.
The annual lecture features prominent executives and academics making presentations on contemporary global management issues.
