Business Magic

From university hallways to Disney’s Main Street, Ed Grier, new dean of SCU’s Leavey School of Business, knows how to drive the roads to success.

After 29 years with one of the most successful companies on earth, Ed Grier knows a thing about business. From Tokyo to Paris, working with the Walt Disney Co. built experience in global markets, brand management, capital projects, and government relations. Now, as dean of the Leavey School of Business, he’s bringing that magic and expertise to Silicon Valley.

“From my first interactions with our students, it was evident that SCU develops compassionate leaders who harness innovative thinking and make a difference in the world. I am eager to work alongside our faculty and staff as we empower our students to do just that.”
