Gregory D. Brenneman, president and CEO of Houston-based Continental Airlines Inc. will discuss the future of the airline industry and business turnarounds during a luncheon presentation at Baylor University on Nov. 27.
Brenneman's talk, which is part of the Ben H.

The program is open to the public, although seating is limited. For reservation information call 710-3495.
As head of Continental, Brenneman is responsible for all scheduling, pricing, marketing and technical/flight/airport operations for the airline, which is the nation's fifth largest carrier. Previously, he worked for Arthur Andersen in Kansas City and later for the Boston-based management consulting firm of Bain & Company Inc., where he rose to vice president and partner.
Brenneman received a bachelor of business administration degree, summa cum laude, from Washburn University and a master of business administration degree with distinction from Harvard University.
The Ben H. Williams Distinguished Speakers Series honors the memory of Ben Williams, who was a member of the 1923 charter class of Baylor's School of Commerce and Business Administration -- today's Hankamer School of Business. An Outstanding Alumnus of Baylor and a trustee of the university, Williams endowed a fellowship in 1953 that today funds five separate professorships at Baylor.
