Dr. Robbie Mullins, Lawrence Peitz Chair of Business and professor of business, retired in May.
“The most rewarding aspect of my time here was the interaction with all the energetic, young professionals who were carving out their futures,” Mullins said. “I have loved having the opportunity to cross paths with so many motivated students and develop relationships that extend throughout the years.”
When reflecting on the conclusion of her 31-year career on Bison Hill, she said, “To sum it up in one sentence: I found what I loved and I loved what I did.”
Mullins has taught all levels of marketing courses at OBU focusing on selling, motivation and business communications. She has served as a frequent seminar speaker, discussing marketing trends, marketing audits and other topics. She has also served on the board of directors for Arvest Bank in Shawnee.
