The School of Business is pleased to welcome alumnus Sam Villanti ‘86, President and CEO of UTC RETAIL, back to Ithaca College on Tuesday, September 11, at 7 p.m. in Business 111.

Mr. Villanti’s discussion, Lessons Learned While Leading through Change, will focus on his career, including the organizational changes he has weathered and lessons learned while leading successfully. Mr. Villanti has held his current President and CEO role since 1998.

In 2000, Mr. Villanti organized a management-led buyout from a publicly held parent and has led the transition of UTC RETAIL from a niche hardware manufacturer to one of North America’s leading retail solution providers of software, hardware and professional services. UTC RETAIL was recently recognized as one of the fastest growing POS solution providers in North America

"We're delighted to welcome alumnus Sam Villanti to speak to our students. Sam's experience as a successful leader of an organization and business environment that have undergone and continue to experience significant change gives him great insights about how to manage and succeed in today's business world."  said School of Business Dean Mary Ellen Zuckerman.
