UMW’s Executive-in-Residence Presentation Cancelled

The University of Mary Washington’s Executive-in-Residence program, scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 31 and Thursday, Nov. 1, has been cancelled due to travel difficulties caused by the weather. The Executive-in-Residence for 2012-2013 Doug Dolton ’78, founder, chairman and CEO of San Francisco Motorsports, had been scheduled to speak to regional business leaders and meet with the students in the College of Business during his two-day trip.

The university hopes to reschedule Dolton’s trip for the spring 2013 semester.

Dolton has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services and banking industries and has served as president and CEO of Servus Financial Corporation, now owned by Wells Fargo, Chela Education Financing, now owned by Nelnet, and Zopa, a U.K.-based peer-to-peer online lending marketplace. He founded San Francisco Motorsports, a luxury automotive retailer based out of Northern California, in April 2010 and has served as chairman and CEO of the company for almost three years. He received a bachelor’s degree in economics from Mary Washington in 1978.

Established in 1989, the Executive-in-Residence program is coordinated through the UMW College of Business and the Division of Advancement and University Relations.  Since its inception, the program has brought more than 40 well-known and established business leaders to the university.
