Bentley Elects New Trustees

Kevin Wong 

The Board of Trustees has elected two new members, expanding skill sets and perspectives within the governing body. Gordon A. Pulsifer ’80, P ’08 ’19 and Caryn Beck-Dudley, JD join the board as Bentley enters the new decade and begins launching initiatives in support of its new strategic plan.

Pulsifer has worked in the real estate industry for close to four decades. He is founder, president and CEO of First Resource Companies, a real estate development and management investment firm based in Hanover, Mass. A member of the Class of 1980, he holds a BS in Accountancy and is a certified public accountant. His sons, Brenton and Michael, earned Bentley degrees in 2008 and 2019, respectively.

Beck-Dudley brings extensive experience leading business programs at schools including Florida State and Utah State universities. In her current post, dean of the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University, she engages the community to implement strategic initiatives. Beck-Dudley holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Utah State University and received her JD from the University of Idaho College of Law.

“I’m glad to have Gordon and Caryn join us and look forward to the fresh outlook they’ll bring to our decision-making process,” says board chair J. Paul Condrin ’83, P ’19 ’22. “Their addition comes at an important time for Bentley, as we continue to position the university as a leader in transformative business education.”

Pulsifer and Beck-Dudley will serve three-year terms and can be re-elected.
