Four accomplished business leaders joined the Carlson School of Management’s Board of Advisors (BOA) this year. They are:

Nicole Graves, human resources senior director for global sales and marketing, finance, and business operations, The Boeing Company

Mark Schindele, executive vice president and chief stores officer, Target
All are University of Minnesota alumni, with three being graduates of the Carlson School: Graves and Newinski earned graduate degrees in their respective fields and Schindele has a bachelor’s in business administration.
“We are thrilled to have such a diverse group of business leaders join us,” says Carlson School Dean Sri Zaheer. “I am eager to work closely with them and other board members as we move forward in 2021 and beyond.”
The Carlson School’s Board of Advisors includes more than 40 senior executives representing a variety of companies and organizations across the globe.
We are thrilled to have such a diverse group of business leaders join us.
Together, they work closely with the Carlson School’s dean and leadership team to ensure a highly engaged relationship with local and national businesses while providing valued assistance in seeking both monetary and non-monetary support from individuals and the corporate community.
The group changed its name from the Board of Overseers to the Board of Advisors in December 2020.
