Robert Iacullo '76 speaks at MBA Speaker Series

The Montclair State University School of Business MBA Executive Speaker Series continued on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. The featured speaker was Robert Iacullo '76, member of the Montclair State School of Business Advisory Board and Executive Vice President of United Water.

In his role at United Water, Robert oversees the support services of Environmental Compliance, Health and Safety, Operations Support, Client Relations, and External Affairs for the company's water and wastewater business across the nation. In this capacity, he has overall responsibility for supporting the company's regulated and contract services business lines.

The event kicked off with a light dinner for all attendees and continued with Brent Chrite, Dean of the School of Business, celebrating Robert’s accomplishments after graduating from Montclair State. His presentation focused on his trajectory at United Water, where he has worked for almost 34 years. He also discussed the increased scarcity of water resources and how his company focuses on providing comprehensive, sustainable water and wastewater management solutions that promote public, economic, and environmental health. After the presentation, attendees, including MBA students, faculty, and alumni, had a chance to ask questions and to network.

Although he admitted that he only scratched the surface on the industry and challenges, Robert was pleased to give back to students by sharing his expertise and time. “I was quite impressed with the students' questions, which were well beyond basic. I was also pleased by their interest in the water industry.”
