At Dean’s Distinguished Executive Lecture Series at Clayton State, October 19
NCR Corp. Chairman, CEO and President William “Bill” Nuti will be the speaker at the upcoming Clayton State University College of Business’ Dean’s Distinguished Executive Lecture Series, Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Clayton State’s Spivey Hall.
The subject of Nuti’s presentation will be, “Reinventing an Icon: From Cash Register Company to Self-Service Giant.”
Everyone over the age of 50 or so remembers mechanical NCR cash registers at practically all the retail outlets in the U.S. Well, times have changed, and so has NCR. What began as a cash register company has successfully reinvented itself into the leader of the self-service revolution. Nuti will take his listeners on a storied journey of NCR’s evolution and how they continue to innovate and grow amidst the increasingly complex global environment we find ourselves in today.
Within his address Nuti will also spend some time talking about NCR’s transformation and recent relocation to Georgia, a subject t hat will also include discussion on NCR’s manufacturing network.
While NCR was in the process of moving its corporate headquarters from Dayton, Oh., to Suwanee, Ga., in 2009, Nuti credited the supply chain management programs at Clayton State and Georgia Tech as one of the reasons the company is relocating to Georgia, noting, “Georgia Tech, as well as Clayton [State] University down there have wonderful supply chain management curriculum. So our access to talent there for that discipline is very high.”
Nuti’s address is free and open to the public, however, reservations are required, since Spivey Hall seats slightly less than 400. To make reservations, contact John Mascaritolo at (678) 466-4564 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attending with the CEO of the $6 billion global corporation that makes ATM machines, point-of-sale, self-checkout machines as well as the DVD rental machines you see around retail outlets, will be eight other members of the leadership of the self-service technology giant, one of whom is Hungarian native Attila Szabó, NCR’s manufacturing operations program manager, NPI Global Operations-Engineering. NCR manufactures its European ATMs in Hungary.
