Farewell Scott Sherwood

Professor Scott Sherwood, who has been impacting the lives of MSU Denver's business students since 2004, retired at the end of the Spring 2019 semester. Sherwood has taught a wide range of classes such as Principles of Marketing, Personal Selling, Sales Management, and Advanced Selling.

As the founding Director of the MSU Denver Center for Professional Selling, he led the strategy that built MSU Denver into one of the "Top Sales Universities" (the only one in Colorado), as recognized by the Sales Education Foundation.

We thank Professor Sherwood for everything he has done for MSU Denver over the past 15 years and congratulate him on his well-deserved retirement!
