Chapman University’s Business School Dean Joins the Orange County Business Council Board of Directors

Henrik Cronqvist, dean of Chapman University’s Argyros School of Business and Economics has been named to the Orange County Business Council’s (OCBC) Board of Directors. 

Cronqvist, the Robert J. and Carolyn A. Waltos Dean and Professor of Finance at the George L. Argyros School of Business and Economics, is an award-winning and internationally recognized researcher and author. He has developed business cases and simulation models and led executive education programs in the United States, Asia, and Latin America, and serves as a consultant to corporations, investment firms, banks, and law firms.

“Orange County is an economic powerhouse: 6th largest county by population in the U.S., 5th most educated county in the U.S., and it has a 2.9% unemployment rate,” Cronqvist said. “I look forward to working with business and community leaders on the OCBC board to further improve the conditions for small and large businesses operating here.”

Cronqvist joins two others, Laureen Driscoll, Interim Chief Executive at Providence Health & Services’ south division and Steven Oh, senior vice president of development at Related California in new appointments to the board. 

“I am honored to have these community leaders join our board of directors. Their insights and talents will be invaluable for the Business Council as we continue to advance our infrastructure, workforce, housing, and economic development initiatives,” said Jeffrey Ball, President and CEO of OCBC.

Orange County Business Council represents and promotes the region’s business community together with government and academia to enhance the economic development of the nation’s sixth largest county. Its members include businesses and local organizations representing a diverse cross section of industries including biomedical, construction, education, financial services, health care, manufacturing, municipalities, nonprofit, real estate, technology, tourism, transportation, real estate and utilities.
