Marketing Industry Mentoring Board

The Marketing Industry Mentoring Board (MIMB) was established in the fall of 2010, and exists to support the efforts of the Pamplin College of Business Marketing Department to improve and enhance students' marketing and sales education experience at Virginia Tech.  MIMB members bring their own unique business and industry experiences to the group. Under the guidance of the current Co-Chairs, Angela Lorinchak and James Wu, paired with Faculty Lead, Donna Wertalik, the board meets biannually to discuss recent trends in the field as they pertain specifically to the Marketing Department. The groups collaborates and works to make improvements for Marketing students and Pamplin as a whole.
