Thomas F. Gleed Chair of Business Administration
The Gleed Chair was established to memorialize Thomas F. Gleed, a prominent Seattle businessman and longtime friend and contributor to Seattle University. Mr. Gleed’s association with Seattle University dates back to the early 1950’s when he and other local business leaders began to organize support for educational programs at the university. His advice and direction helped to guide an emerging institution through several important building phases.
The Thomas F. Gleed Chair of Business Administration brings a distinguished business educator to the Albers School of Business and Economics for a two-year period. The recipient will serve as a resource for university students and faculty and actively participate in community activities such as business seminars, lectures, and conferences. The specific duties will be tailored to the strengths of the chair holder.
The Gleed Chair was established in 1980. Chair holders were originally selected for a one- to five-year term. They are now selected for a two-year term.
