Sonnenfeld leaves for Georgia Tech
Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, founder and director of the Center for Leadership
& Career Studies at the Goizueta Business School, has resigned to become
dean of the DuPree School of Management at Georgia Tech. "It's painful
leaving Emory," said Sonnenfeld, who's been at Emory since 1989. "I've
never had a better job." Sonnenfeld's departure comes at a time when
the business school is conducting a search to replace Dean Ronald Frank,
who will retire next year. Chancellor Billy Frye has forwarded a list of
possible replacements for Frank to President Bill Chace.
