RAMSA Partners Kevin Smith and Graham S.

Joining them on the panel will be Ginger Breon, Assistant Dean for Administration and Chief Information Officer of the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University, and Anna Chrulkiewicz, Associate Dean of the LeBow College of Business at Drexel University.
