Previously, she has held corporate positions at Arthur D. Little, Digital Equipment Corporation and Wearguard Corporation before joining Babson College in 1990 as vice president for marketing.

At Bentley, she will work closely with the president and other senior officers in institutional strategic planning, policy development, and problem solving.

King will collaborate with the deans, provost and president to develop marketing plans for the undergraduate college and the McCallum Graduate School of Business, and for major research and curricular initiatives.

"Sandra King is one of higher education's most accomplished and strategically oriented marketing professionals, said Bentley President Joseph G. Morone. "All of us who have admired her work from a distance are delighted that she is joining Bentley and look forward to an exciting collaboration as we grow our reputation as the nation's first business university."

At Northeastern, Sandra King is credited with instituting a marketing program that has helped to create a new level of understanding about the university in many markets and among many constituents, strengthened the university's message and visual image; invested in regional and national advertising; entered into strategic partnerships with several high visibility organizations like WGBH and the Boston Red Sox; and created new ways to recognize corporate co-op alliances.

"I have been so impressed with the accomplishments at Bentley in its academic programs, in student success and the overall intellectual vibrancy that is evident here," said King. "The faculty is first class, the physical facilities are state-of-the-art and the overall spirit of the institution is appealing and indeed a great story to tell. I am delighted to be taking on the challenge of telling that story successfully."

King is a graduate of Elmira College and received an MBA from Northeastern University. She and her family reside in Sudbury, MA.
