FORT COLLINS - Beth Walker, chair of the marketing department at Arizona State University, has been named the new dean of Colorado State University's College of Business.
Walker, the first female dean of the college in its 50-year history, replaces Ajay Menon, who is returning to the classroom after a dozen years as dean.
"I am tremendously pleased to welcome Dr. Walker to Colorado State University," said Rick Miranda, CSU provost and executive VP. "She comes to us with very impressive credentials, and faculty, staff and students are looking forward to working with her in moving the college ahead."
"I am deeply honored to have been chosen to become dean of the College of Business," Walker said. "CSU has built an exceptional business school that may be the best-kept secret in the American West. The staff is first-rate and the students are truly inspiring."
Walker received her Master's and Ph.D degrees from Penn State. She joined the ASU faculty in 1988 and has served as chair of the university's marketing department since 2011.
