Lytle joins board of CEO Forum

Posted October 14, 2010

The global reach of ACU and the College of Business Administration continues to grow with Dr. Rick Lytle's appointment to CEO Forum's Board of Directors. The organization is composed of more than 150 Christian CEOs from corporations all over the world with at least $100 million in total yearly revenue. Its members include CEOs from Walmart, Proctor & Gamble and ExxonMobil.

"This is a great honor and provides access to incredible talent, faith and global experience for me personally andĀ for our programs in COBA," says Lytle, dean of COBA.

CEO Forum has three focuses:

  • Relationship development and spiritual encouragement
  • Leadership development and training
  • Cultural impact

The mission of the organization is to develop spiritual statespersons among senior executives of major corporations, and through them, advance the kingdom of God and impact the business and social cultures of America, says Lytle.

As the only board member who is not a CEO and the only academic representative in the organization, Lytle's service on the board will involve aiding in strategy, development and building a bridge between academics and business.

"Being a part of CEO Forum broadens our network and our ability to impact, with our Christian business persons, the global marketplace," says Lytle.
