Interim Dean of Wharton: David Schmittlein

David Schmittlein

We are delighted to announce that David C. Schmittlein, the Wharton School’s current Deputy Dean and the Ira A. Lipman Professor of Marketing, will serve as Interim Dean of the Wharton School during the month of July, pending the arrival of Tom Robertson on August 1st.  Dave knows the Wharton School intimately and is passionately committed to realizing its bold strategic ambition to be the world’s leading creator and provider of management knowledge.  Dave has been a faculty member at Wharton since 1980 and Deputy Dean since 2000.  He also served as Chair of the Marketing Department from 1994 to 2000 and as Vice Dean for Doctoral Programs from 1993 to 1995.

We are grateful for Dave Schmittlein’s willingness to serve during this brief period of transition, and we are confident that Dave will bring his legendary commitment and attention to detail to ensuring that the Wharton School’s forward momentum continues unabated.
