As senior vice president of America’s largest footwear business and trade association, Andy Polk ’02 educates and advises chief executive officers and executives at Fortune 500 companies. The job requires the ability to process information and determine the best course of action, a skill he learned as an undergraduate at Gardner-Webb University. “In today’s world where technology and innovation is changing how we live and work, and disrupting political and business models, critical thought is key to understanding change and how to not just survive it but succeed,” Polk explained.
