Whitefish Bay native appointed dean of Business School at CUA

ST. FRANCIS — Bill Bowman, 67, a Whitefish Bay native, was appointed dean of the Busch School of Business and Economics at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., in August. It is the only business school in the United States chartered by the Vatican.

“He is, in essence, the Vatican’s point man on business education in the United States,” said Robert Warren, an accounting professor for the Busch School.

Bowman, who attended the former Henry Clay School, now Whitefish Bay Middle School, and graduated from Whitefish Bay High School in 1967, was a member of St. Monica Parish.

“Whitefish Bay is an idyllic place to grow up,” said Bowman in a Sept. 30 phone interview with the Catholic Herald. “It’s a lovely town and the schools are fantastic. It was challenging academically and the football team was fairly good in those days when I played. All those things provided me with a strong foundation for what came next.”

Bowman studied industrial engineering and management science at Northwestern University and upon graduation worked for the United States Public Health Service in Cincinnati. He also married his high school sweetheart, Leigh (née Daggett), with whom he has nine children.
