When Larry Pulley was announced as dean of the Business School in 1998, then W&M Provost Gillian Cell noted, "he has great leadership ability that can be put to good use in advancing the quality and reputation of a school of business that is rapidly gaining national recognition." W&M's business school was a rising star, indeed, and it needed Larry Pulley's steady hand to claim its rightful place among the world's best business schools.

Larry exceeded everyone's expectations. His accomplishments include launching online degree programs, becoming a named business school, establishing the finest academic building on campus, and overseeing the creation of the executive partners program among so many others.
