Spring’s appearance, sponsored by the SUNY Orange Business Department, is part of the College’s ongoing “Global Initiative: Sustaining the Earth” program, a yearlong educational program designed to examine issues of environmental stewardship, explore measures to sustain a healthy environment for years to come, and celebrate local and global solutions to environmental problems. Each Global Initiative event in 2009 will attempt to address at least one of the following questions or statements: “Who we are,” “Where we live,” “How we Live,” and “What we can do.”

Global Initiative, coordinated through SUNY Orange’s Global Studies Department, is a College-wide interdisciplinary focus on a topic of global importance. Global Initiative seeks to expand students’ horizons, bring academic departments together in collaboration and infuse a global perspective on the College’s curriculum. It is also intended to incorporate the community-at-large into the topical discussions and events.

The project involves students, faculty, staff, and community members through the use of discussions, lectures, workshops, cultural events and other special events.

During his 23-year career, Spring has orchestrated company turnarounds for a host of nationally known consumer companies and products, including Vlasic Foods, Log Cabin, Paint-By-Numbers, Open Pit, Mrs. Butterworths, French’s, Tegrin, RedHot, Bagel Crisps, Easy-Off and Airwick Stick-Ups. A resident of New Jersey, Spring holds an MBA from Pace University and earned his bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York.

He is currently a board member for PE Bullpen, a web-based service that pairs executive talent with the needs of private equity groups at the earliest stage of a deal cycle, mid-deal or nearing the exit.
