Bio

Dwight Gertz teaches courses on strategy, leadership, and executive decision making in the undergraduate, MBA, and executive education programs at Babson. He is particularly interested in the challenges of global management and cross cultural decision making.

Immediately prior to joining the Babson faculty full time, he was a member of the Executive Management Team of Celerant Consulting, where he was President of Celerant Americas and was responsible for the firm's global human resources, leadership development, and executive education functions. His service at Celerant was the culmination of a career in management consulting in which he was a partner of Bain & Company, head of the Boston office of Mercer Management Consulting, and Chief Executive Officer of Symmetrix, inc. His 1995 book Grow to be Great: Breaking the Downsizing Cycle was published by Simon & Schuster and released in fourteen printings in six languages. In addition to working in the private sector, Professor Gertz served as an active and reserve officer in the United States Navy, where he retired with the rank of Captain.
