Bob Herrmann, College of Business Alum
The success of Pitt State graduates is evident when alumni like Bob Herrmann make a stop at their alma mater to share with students the important lessons they've learned in their careers.
Herrmann, a business graduate (BSBA '70) visited PSU in October through the university's Executives on Campus program, a day that offers alumni and constituents a chance to share the important lessons they've learned over the course of their careers - and to show students what an education from PSU can achieve.
As CEO of To Go Brands, Inc., a California-based manufacturer of nutritional supplements sold worldwide and in major retail chains such as Sam's Club, Costco, and GNC, Herrmann shared with marketing students the importance of networking when it comes to job hunting, how to develop communication skills in business, and how to create an effective marketing campaign for a company. With a business projected to exceed $200 million in gross sales by 2013, his wisdom comes from years of experience - and a path of success that began at PSU.
"It was a combination of school and the interaction I had with organizations on campus that made PSU the right place for me," Herrmann said during his day visiting with students.
