Lou Heldman, an experienced business and campus leader, has been named acting director of the Wichita State University Center for Entrepreneurship, effective June 2.

His appointment was announced by Cindy Claycomb, interim dean of the W. Frank Barton School of Business, and Keith Pickus, interim provost of the university.

The center is part of the Barton School.

"Lou's extensive management experience and business contacts will be helpful in advancing the center's mission to encourage entrepreneurial thinking through education, research and community outreach," said Claycomb.

Heldman led the Elliott School of Communication the past two years as interim director.

Heldman had a career in newspapers and websites before coming to Wichita at the beginning of 2002 as president and publisher of The Wichita Eagle and Kansas.com. He retired from the Eagle in 2007 and joined WSU as Distinguished Senior Fellow in Media Management and Journalism.

In the Elliott School, he has taught courses focusing on the impact of the Internet on media, business and society. In the Barton School, he has conducted seminars for the Center for Entrepreneurship and the Center for Management Development. He is a graduate of Ohio State University and the Program for Management Development at Harvard Business School.

"I have had a strong interest in the Center for Entrepreneurship since arriving in Wichita," said Heldman. "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the talented staff of the center and the faculty of the Barton School to extend Wichita State's support of the Kansas economy."
