MILWAUKEE — Tim Hanley, a 1978 Marquette University College of Business Administration alumnus and former senior partner with Deloitte, has been named the college’s first-ever executive-in-residence. Hanley led Deloitte’s Global Consumer and Industrial Products industry to over $14 billion in revenue — the largest amount in the history of the accounting and professional services network.

“I have been fortunate to serve in very senior roles at Deloitte, both in the U.S. and more recently on a global basis. This has allowed me to spend time with our top clients and their senior management team in most every global market,” Hanley said. “These roles have helped me build a significant network, which I plan to share with both faculty and students. I also want to offer a bit of coaching and mentoring and share my global experience with them.”

Hanley’s role as the business school’s executive-in-residence is meant to elevate the college’s engagement with the business community. The position is part of Dean Joseph Daniels’ plan to elevate the college’s engagement with the business community. “It’s also a chance to have a highly successful business executive working directly within the college,” Daniels said.

Faculty will be able to leverage the seasoned global executive’s expertise in their classrooms where he will provide firsthand knowledge and real-world experience and establish valuable connections between business students and the corporate world.

One of Hanley’s roles as executive-in-residence will be to create and moderate a business roundtable where leaders in business will discuss their fields, different approaches in the ever-evolving business landscape and more.

“I hope to provide a real sense for the current issues and opportunities that companies and their boards of directors are addressing,” Hanley said.

Hanley will serve as executive-in-residence for two years.

More about Hanley

Hanley was named the Marquette University College of Business Administration’s Distinguished Alumnus of the Year in 2012. He has also served as a member of the college’s Dean’s Council of Excellence.
