by Alan Hunt

Mark V. Hurd, president of NCR Corporation, will speak at Baylor University on Tuesday, Feb. 19. His address, sponsored by the Hankamer School of Business, will be the first of four lectures to be presented during the 2002 Ben H. Williams Distinguished Speakers Series.

A 1979 Baylor business graduate, Hurd also serves as chief operating officer of the Teradata Division. He will make a presentation at a noon lunch attended by Central Texas community leaders and graduate students in The Galloway Suite at Floyd Casey Stadium. His topic will be "Enterprise Decisioning: How Leading Companies Make Decisions in a Turbulent World."

Hurd began his NCR career in 1980 as a sales representative in San Antonio and went on to hold positions of responsibility in marketing, sales and management. He is a member of the board of visitors for Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and a member of the trustees for the Dayton Area Chapter American Red Cross. He and his family live in Dayton, Ohio.

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 -- the forerunner of 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.
