Wake Forest University Dean of Business Steve Reinemund, former Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, appeared on a live CNBC television broadcast on Sept. 20 as part of the network’s coverage of the “Investing in America” town hall event with President Barrack Obama.
Reinemund was among a group of current and former business executives, and the only business educator, to offer commentary following President Obama’s remarks about the state of the U.S. economy, government initiatives and the Administration’s relationship with the business community.
Dean Reinemund said that he believed President Obama showed himself as an approachable leader and related to the town hall audience. However, he expressed disappointment in Obama’s continued emphasis on government regulation v. focusing on growth and giving confidence to the business community to invest in the future.
