Henrik Cronqvist, dean of Chapman University’s Argyros School of Business and Economics, has been named to the Orange County Business Council’s board of directors.
Cronqvist 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: sixth-largest county by population in the U.S., fifth 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.”
The Orange County Business Council represents and promotes the region’s business community to enhance economic development in the county. Its members include businesses and local organizations representing biomedical, construction, education, financial services, health care, manufacturing, municipalities, nonprofit, real estate, technology, tourism, transportation, real estate and utility industries.
