Carolyn Ladd brings the benefit of her extensive professional experience to her several years of teaching the graduate course in strategic marketing management at Antioch University Midwest. She has deep expertise in online training and performance support technology for both education and the private sector. Her education includes Union Graduate School, Adult Learning and Organizational Development (ABD); University of Dayton, MS in Education, and Ohio Wesleyan University, BS in Education.
Today, Carolyn is the Vice President of Strategic Planning at gyro LLC, the largest privately-owned business-to-business agency in the world. Previously, she had been the VP of sales and marketing at several high tech companies in the Cincinnati area, where she worked with some of the world’s largest brands: AT&T, P&G, Xerox, IBM, Google, Intel, and others. She began her career in education teaching in middle schools in Dayton and Yellow Springs, Ohio. When an opportunity arose with a start-up company in the early ’80s, she left education and joined the private sector, from which her extensive experience now contributes to her return to teaching, this time in higher education.
