This program is designed to take high potential business-owners and steer them towards running highly-integrated, customer-focused businesses that will survive in difficult environments, prosper and grow

Pure Air Control Services’ President/CEO, Alan Wozniak, recently attended the Tuck Executive Education Program offered at Dartmouth College, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Dartmouth College is the ninth oldest college in the U.S., dating back to its inception in 1769. The Tuck Business School Ivy League program, designed to promote Minority Business Enterprise growth, was ranked as the number one MBA business school in the world by the Wall Street Journal in 2005.

The program, “Building a High Performance Business”, was tailored to the needs of small minority-owned enterprising businesses. The curriculum includes:

  • Strategy and Implementation
  • Financial Ratio Analysis
  • Managing the Customer Assets
  • Operation Strategy
  • Service Operations
  • Cost Analysis for Management Decisions
  • Doing Business with the Government
  • Strategic Alliance
  • Leadership

The national participants, representing 23 states throughout the U.S., focused on the development and implementation of a customer-focused strategic plan, use of financial tools for cost analysis and control systems, and concentrate on other vital areas such as marketing, operations strategies, human resources and leadership skills.

Tuck, American’s oldest graduate business school, was the first institution in the country to offer courses directly addressing the needs of minority business enterprises. In 2004, the program celebrated 25 years of providing highly recognized minority business executive programs.

Dr. Leonard Greenhalgh serves as Faculty Director of executive programs for minority and women-owned businesses. Dr. Greenhalgh is also the professor of management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, where he has taught since 1978.

“This program is designed to take high potential business-owners and steer them towards running highly-integrated, customer-focused businesses that will survive in difficult environments, prosper and grow,” stated Dr. Greenhalgh.

The program also included esteemed professors, Dr. Ella Bell, Dr. Joseph Hall, Dr. Punman Keller and Dr. Kathleen McGraham. The executive education programs keep with a personal scale, affording all participants excellent access to the faculty members and creating a program which takes the time to understand each individual company and its critical business needs and issues.

Alan Wozniak indicated that, “the MBDA program has provided Pure Air Control Services with the tools necessary to usher in the growth and expansion of the company. The strategies learned from the program will be implemented in all facets of the company, which will emphasize customer quality, customer service, business strategies, effective operations, and expansion of the company’s environmental portfolio. Any alterations necessary to accommodate the rapid growth of Pure Air Control Services can be made more effectively and efficiently with proper focus on these strategies, which will also help to ease the growing pains of the company, and make any transitions more fluid.”

Ronald Langston, National Director of the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), was the keynote speaker at the graduation of the 50 high potential organizations across the country culminating the week-long program. In 2001, Mr. Langston was personally appointed to the National Director position by President George W. Bush. He has since redirected the focus of the MBDA to an entrepreneurial agency that concentrates on the vision of empowerment through entrepreneurship.
