A distinguished GW alumnus, Robert P. Maxon valiantly 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. The lectureship is designed to add depth to the understanding of the next generation of global business leaders.
