As many of you know, GBSN’s founder, Guy Pfeffermann, recently retired as GBSN’s CEO. Guy founded the Global Business School Network back in 2003 with a vision for the developing world to have the management talent it needs to generate prosperity.
Starting as a program of the International Finance Corporation at the World Bank, where Guy was Chief Economist at the time, we began with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. Today GBSN is an independent 501(c)3 organization with member schools on 6 continents and a global mission.
“In over 40 years as a development economist at the World Bank I saw vast amounts of money, resources and human potential go to waste. It wasn’t just money these emerging markets needed, but human capacity to effectively manage resources and productively lead teams.”Guy Pfeffermann, Founder, GBSN
This video was produced as a tribute to Guy’s work and impact, not just on GBSN as an organization, but also to illustrate how he has touched the lives of many throughout the years.
Guy Pfeffermann will continue his work by serving on GBSN’s Board of Directors.
Thank you to everyone who recorded video messages from all over the world to make this video possible.
