Executives in Residence

Executives in Residence - We Bring C-Suite Business Leaders to You!

Each year, chairs, CEOs, presidents, and other top executives visit the campuses for a day and interact with students as part of our Executive in Residence program. Located in New York, the business capital of the world, the Lubin School of Business has a unique competitive positioning that provides opportunities for corporate partnerships and close relationships with the business community. Our location is part of Lubin's experience-based learning advantage.

The Executive in Residence program has been in existence for over 25 years and typically executives visit both campuses each year. The executives lecture on timely business issues, providing unique insights to students from a real business perspective. Students have the opportunity to interact with the executives throughout the day, asking questions, learning about positions in the industry, and sharing their concerns as they prepare for their own business careers. We also find that our visiting executives find the experience to be very rewarding as they interact with students and faculty, giving back to the community and helping to shape tomorrow's business leaders. You might meet the CEO of the next company you work for!

For more information about the Executive in Residence program, please contact Lubin's Office of Communications and External Relations, lubin@pace.edu, (212) 618-6500.

Alan Zweibel

An original Saturday Night Live writer who The New York Times says has "earned a place in the pantheon of American pop culture," Alan has won multiple Emmy, Writers Guild of America, and TV Critics awards for his work in television, which also includes It's Garry Shandling's Show (which he co-created and produced), Monk, PBS's Great Performances, The Late Show With David Letterman, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

A frequent guest on all of the late night talk shows, Alan's theatrical contributions include his collaboration with Billy Crystal on the Tony Award-winning play 700 Sundays, Martin Short's Broadway hit Fame Becomes Me, and the off-Broadway play Bunny Bunny – Gilda Radner: A Sort of Romantic Comedy, which he adapted from his best-selling book.

Other books by Alan are the 2006 Thurber Prize-winning novel The Other Shulman, the popular children's book Our Tree Named Steve, North, a collection of short stories and essays titled Clothing Optional, the novel Lunatics that he co-wrote with Dave Barry, and the recently released middle grades novel Benjamin Franklin: Huge Pain In My ___, that he co-wrote with Adam Mansbach.

Alan's humor has also appeared in such diverse publications as The New Yorker, Esquire, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Op-Ed page, The Huffington Post, Modern Bride, and MAD magazine. He has also penned a best-selling e-book titled From My Bottom Drawer.

The co-writer of the screenplays for the films Dragnet, North, and The Story of Us, Alan has received an honorary PhD from the State University of New York and because of the diversity of his body or work, in 2010 the Writers Guild of America, East, gave him a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Alan is currently adapting his novel The Other Shulman as a feature film, writing and producing a television pilot for IFC, and writing the book for a Broadway musical version of Field of Dreams.

And in addition to the late night talk shows, on the TV screen he's also appeared in episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Law & Order.

But the production that Alan is most proud of is the family he's co-produced with his wife Robin: their children Adam, Lindsay, and Sari; and their grandchildren Zachary, Alexis, Jordan, and Kylie.
