Is there anything you’d like the readers to know about you on a personal level? I’m a Finance guy. Fell in love with it as an undergraduate and kept going. BS, MBA, PhD, all in Finance. Also loved teaching Finance, first at California State University at Chico (where I was voted Finance teacher of the year by students) and later at UMASS Amherst, where I taught while getting my PhD. I’ve taught Investments, Corporate Finance, and International Finance. Investments was my favorite class to teach.
Gordon is a proud father of two sons and one daughter.
