Spring 2019 About

Virginia Tech Business is published twice a year by Pamplin College of Business, Virginia Tech.

Two former students lead a merger to reconstruct something from their past: "a great Virginia-based regional bank," like the ones they once worked for.

According to Pamplin alumnus Mike Clarke, the successful banks of the future will be those that “embrace safety, security, and trust while delivering a client experience that is timely, easy, and exceeds expectations.”

A point Asbury loves to make when calling on business customers: "The buck stops here. Virginia needs a bank where customer needs are decided here and not somewhere else.”

"Bank mergers are an accelerant to achieving critically needed economies of scale, to spread cost out over a larger base of customers, to diversify business risk, and to open new growth market opportunities."

The Apex Center for Entrepreneurs received the Outstanding Emerging Entrepreneurship Center Award, and Paul Benjamin Lowry was awarded the 2018 Operational Research Society’s Stafford Beer Medal.

The awards were initiated by the Pamplin Society, which was re-activated in 2016 to enhance alumni engagement by recognizing alumni contributions.

The Pamplin College of Business welcomes some exceptional incoming administrative staff members, including Pamplin's first director of diversity and inclusion, the director of development, and two associate directors of major gifts.
