Richard Stafford Named Director of LMU’s EMBA Program

Longtime EMBA faculty member Dr. Richard Stafford has been named the Director of the EMBA Program at Loyola Marymount University, effective June 3. Stafford steps in to replace Bill Lindsey, who retires in June after serving 19 years as Associate Dean and Director of LMU’s EMBA Program.

Stafford played a key role in the development of LMU’s EMBA Program and has been a part of the EMBA faculty since 2000. He’s taught a number of courses over the years, including “Strategic Use of Human Resources” and the “International Project Business Plan.” In addition, he often accompanies EMBA students on the international trip each spring. His areas of expertise include human resources management and strategic planning.

“Having been involved with LMU’s EMBA Program for so many years, I’m honored for the opportunity to continue growing and developing the program,” said Stafford. “Bill Lindsey has done an outstanding job and he certainly has big shoes to fill.”

In addition to his contributions at LMU, Stafford is founder of Human Capital Management, a firm dedicated to helping organizations develop and implement leading-edge human resources strategies. He previously worked for several prestigious firms, including Montgomery Watson, Inc. and the Hughes Aircraft Company.

Stafford received an Ed.D. degree from Harvard University, an M.A. degree from the University of California, Davis, and M.J. and B.A. degrees from the University of California, Berkeley. He has served on the Executive Committee of the Human Resources Roundtable at UCLA, the Human Resource Advisory Committee at California State University, Long Beach, and the Society for Human Resource Management.
