Dick Freeman

As an added bonus to our Accounting BA 650 course, Professor Dave Debowski is bringing in Dick Freeman to offer real-world accounting experience. Today was our first class with Dick Freeman, who after serving in the Navy worked his way to Chief Financial Officer and CEO of both the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates. For both the Padres and Pirates, he was an integral part of the team receiving the financing for a new ballpark. Even after retiring from his position with the Padres in March, he's now serving as a consultant for the Minnesota Twins and their new ballpark, Target Field.

Even after our first Statistics exam, SMBA '11 was thrilled to have such a high-profile guest lecturer.

Once again, the SMBA has gone above-and-beyond to provide us with not only another fantastic opportunity, but a valuable source of information. SMBA '11 looks forward to more classes from Mr. Freeman.
