Mort, Flip and Ben—and the organizations they’ve founded—are living proof of the power of Drucker’s timeless teachings to deliver results, whether the bottom line is dollars earned or lives changed
CLAREMONT, Calif. (PRWEB) September 17, 2015
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University announced today that Ben Baldwin, founder of ClearFit, Flip Flippen, founder of the Flippen Group, and Morton Mandel, co-founder of Premier Industrial Corporation, have joined its Board of Advisors.
“We’re fortunate to have a wonderfully engaged and effective Board of Advisors. And it is our privilege to welcome Ben, Flip and Mort to our work together," said Curt Pullen, Chairman.
Ben Baldwin is the founder of ClearFit, an online solution for predictive job matching: technology that helps predict who will succeed at which job and why, in one step. Baldwin and his work have been profiled in many publications, including The Wall Street Journal and Fortune. In total, he has founded two successful software companies focused on recruitment, hiring and job creation. Baldwin holds multiple patents and is a member of the i4j Innovation for Jobs Summit, which is focused on 'disrupting unemployment,’ a columnist for Inc. magazine, startup mentor for The Wall Street Journal, Extreme Startups and Ryerson Digital Media Zone, and past board member of the global Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO/YEO).
Flip Flippen is the founder of the Flippen Group, one of the largest educator-training companies, and one of the fastest-growing leadership-development organizations, in North America. The Flippen Group has worked with the Institute to integrate the Drucker for Future Leaders curriculum into the Flippen Group’s highly successful Teen Leadership program. Flippen is a psychotherapist and a New York Times bestselling author of The Flip Side.
With his brothers, Jack and Joseph, Mort Mandel cofounded Premier Industrial Corporation in 1940, eventually merging it with Farnell Electronics in a $3 billion transaction. Mandel was a consulting client of Peter Drucker’s in the 1960’s and 70’s, and is a longtime champion of Drucker’s values. The mission of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation, in which Mandel is actively engaged, is to “invest in people with the values, ability and passion to change the world.”
"During the past year, we lost two incredible Board members with the passing of Doris Drucker and Don Keough," said Rick Wartzman, the Drucker Institute's executive director. "It's wonderful that we're now able to bring on a new slate of advisors who are equally talented and committed to building on Peter Drucker's legacy by helping us fulfill our mission—strengthening organizations to strengthen society. Having Mort, Flip and Ben share their insights with us will, no doubt, prove invaluable."
“With our focus on organizations in all three sectors of society—corporations, nonprofits and city government agencies—we will benefit immeasurably from our new Board members’ expertise and experience,” said Zachary First, the Drucker Institute’s senior managing director. “Mort, Flip and Ben—and the organizations they’ve founded—are living proof of the power of Drucker’s timeless teachings to deliver results, whether the bottom line is dollars earned or lives changed."
About the Drucker Institute
The Drucker Institute is a social enterprise based at Claremont Graduate University.
Our mission is strengthening organizations to strengthen society. Our programming—for the corporate, nonprofit and public sectors—is built on a foundation of YESTERDAY/TODAY/MONDAY* “Yesterday” refers to the fact that our work is grounded in Peter Drucker’s timeless wisdom. “Today” speaks to the urgency that we know organizational leaders feel to successfully meet their greatest challenges and opportunities. And “Monday” points to our proven ability to help executives move quickly from ideas to action to results, just as Drucker urged his own consulting clients: “Don’t tell me you had a wonderful meeting with me. Tell me what you’re going to do on Monday that’s different.”
