Meet Danny Powell

Ironman brings banking/investment expertise to classroom

B.S., MBA and Master of Arts - Indiana Wesleyan University, Doctor of Education, Oakland City University

Prior to my career in academics, I spent 25 years in the banking and investment industry where my experience ranged from sales, operations, management and firm ownership. I managed diversified portfolios using complex strategies that totaled more than $150,000,000.

I've had the opportunity to conduct leadership and strategic management consulting for many business and sports organizations throughout the United States that relates to my research in the areas of leadership behavior, job satisfaction and organizational performance.

As a professor, I use real life experiences, case studies, experiential exercises and projects to bridge theory and practice, creating an engaged and energetic learning community.

My wife of 24 years, Cathy, and I have two children, Carli and Blake. In addition to spending time with family, I enjoy competing as an ironman triathlete as well as hunting and fishing.
