The Energy Finance veteran (MBA'92) talks about bringing a company back from the brink, challenges and opportunities in the industry, and more

How do you turn a company around after every member of the executive team and board of directors quits? What’s the best route for a finance student with lots of passion and education but little experience?

We talked this week with Clint Freeland, the Chief Financial Officer of Dynegy, Inc., a Houston-based Electric Company that owns and operates a number of power stations across the U.S. The MBA’92 alum talks about opportunities and challenges in today’s energy industry, his path to the C-suite, and overlooked skills that finance-focused professionals should develop. Freeland participated in Vanderbilt Business’ new Alumni Fireside Chat Series, where distinguished alumni share stories about their career and chat with a small group of students by the fireplace at the Walker Management Library.
