Networking Reception
Macfeat House (adjacent to Carroll Hall)

Whitton Auditorium-Vivian M. Carroll Hall

Featuring: Walter Pavlo

Walt Pavlo provides a transparent and insightful talk on his experience as a senior manager at MCI Telecommunications (later became WorldCom).  He managed nearly $1 billion in monthly billing and receivables for the company's resale division.  When a business strategy to target high-return customers failed, he and a group of young MBAs devised a plan to "make the numbers."  After a short while, this evolved into a $6 million embezzlement scheme.  Pavlo's story is one of the dangers of the slippery slope, tone at the top and consequences for making the wrong decisions.
