University Hires Dean of School of Business & Economics
Bowman brings with him to his new position over 25 years of business leadership experience. Prior to launching Core Values Group, Bowman was president and CEO of US Inspect in Chantilly, Va., the nation’s largest home and commercial inspection company. Before that, he served as president of ChildrenFirst Inc. (now Bright Horizons), the nation’s leading provider of backup child care services to corporations.
Bowman is also an experienced entrepreneur. In 1982, he co-founded Spinnaker Software Corp., one of the nation’s first educational software companies. After selling Spinnaker to the Learning Company, Bowman began operations for Logal Software, Inc., another educational software company. Serving as president, he helped to take the company public in 1996. Prior to both those ventures, Bowman co-founded the Montrose School, an independent day school for girls located in Medfield, Mass. Bowman served as chairman of the school’s Board of Trustees for 10 years and remains active as a trustee.
Bowman is an honors engineering graduate of Northwestern University. He received an M.B.A. with distinction from the Harvard Business School. He is married to Leigh Bowman, with whom he has nine children.
Bowman also worked for the Boston Consulting Group and for the United States Public Health Service, and was appointed by the governor as a trustee of the five campuses of the University of Massachusetts, remaining on the board for six years. He is a co-founder of the Massachusetts Software Council, past chairman of the Software Publishers Association, and a former director of the Massachusetts High Technology Council.
Announcing the appointment, President Garvey said, “Bill Bowman has achieved great success while living out his faith in the business world. We look forward to working with him as he brings his talents, experience, and values into his new role as dean of the School of Business and Economics.”
Bowman noted: “The Catholic Church has a rich set of social doctrine that can help business leaders operate their companies with greater integrity and compassion. I look forward to working with our faculty and students to translate these principles into concrete actions that improve business operations without sacrificing financial return. At a time when so many are losing faith with business, The Catholic University of America can help them gain confidence that there is a better way to operate."
As the dean of the School of Business and Economics, Bowman will report to the provost. He will provide academic and administrative leadership to the school, while representing the school to the University at large and the business community. He will also be responsible for leading the school’s development and promotion efforts.
