Blacksburg Library presents an Author Night with Stephen Skripak and His Book "From the Boardroom to the Classroom" on Thursday, February 2, 2023.

Join us to hear from accomplished business executive, Stephen Skripak, who has worked with Fortune 500 companies like Capital One Financial and Sara Lee Corporation. Yet born out of his own experiences as a student, he had a burning desire to reach young people in and beyond the classroom.

"From the Boardroom to the Classroom" takes you through the journey of someone who transitioned from a long career as an executive with major companies to one as a popular and sought-after college professor and administrator.

In his talk, Skripak will discuss his transition from corporate America to academia, while regaling the audience with entertaining stories from his career.

Stephen Skripak retired as a Professor of Practice in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech. He spent 16 years at the university and also served as Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and MBA Director. Prior to joining Virginia Tech, Skripak was an executive with Capital One Financial and Sara Lee Corporation. In addition, he spent eleven years with General Electric.

As a professor, he taught in the areas of business strategy, ethical leadership, and general business. He also led multiple study abroad programs and taught at the master’s level in France. Skripak was the lead adapter on an open-source textbook that has been downloaded more than 2.6 million times. He has earned university-level awards for teaching excellence including the Sporn Award in 2017 and the William E. Wine Award in 2020 and is a member of the university’s Academy of Teaching Excellence.

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Blacksburg Library is located at 200 Miller Street in Blacksburg, VA.
