Since completing his commerce degree in 1979, Michel Burrows has carried the Carleton banner proudly. He has served with distinction in various executive roles with such companies as Procter and Gamble, Nabisco, Mattel Fisher Price, and Janes Family Foods, where product sales tripled during his tenure as President and COO.

Burrows credits Carleton with sowing the seeds of his interest in business.
“When I think of Carleton, I’m reminded of the ‘anything is possible’ attitude and invigorating learning environment that it provided me. The practical nature of my education there, combined with the interpersonal skills and spirit of camaraderie that I developed, became strong roots for a successful business career.”
