Davidson hired to lead HD Museum
The Harley-Davidson Museum recently hired vice president Bill Davidson, great-grandson of Harley-Davidson Motor Company co-founder, William Davidson to lead the next phase of the Harley-Davidson Museum. The Museum’s current leader, Stacey Watson, is taking on a newly elevated role leading marketing for all Harley-Davidson customer segments across North America. “Bill and Stacey are passionate leaders with dynamic backgrounds in marketing and customer outreach,” said Mark-Hans Richer, senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “A guy like Bill Davidson running our Museum is a natural next phase for this important business. He’s spent his career – probably since he could walk – deeply focused on strengthening Harley-Davidson’s relationships with our riders around the world.”
Davidson has been with Harley-Davidson for more than 26 years in various leadership positions throughout Marketing. “Harley-Davidson is in my blood,” said Davidson. “The Museum is not only the story of Harley-Davidson – it’s the story of America, told through the lens of an iconic company. I’m excited and honored to share that story and continue to build the Harley-Davidson legacy with everyone who visits the Museum from around the world.”
The Museum opened in July 2008, under the leadership of Watson. She was instrumental in the design, development, construction and launch of the Museum, which has become a highly regarded and awarded destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world.
“I am proud of what we accomplished together at the Museum to create a world-class destination right here in Milwaukee,” said Watson, “and I am thrilled to continue strengthening the Company’s focus on customers in my new role.”
Marquette PT faculty receive programs highest honor
Three physical therapy professors in Marquette University’s College of Health Sciences have been honored by the American Physical Therapy Association. Dr. Lawrence Pan, chair and professor of physical therapy, was elected a Catherine Worthingham Fellow, the professional organization’s highest honor. Dr. Tina Stoeckmann, clinical associate professor, won the Dorothy Briggs Memorial Scientific Inquiry Award, and Dr. Guy Simoneau, professor, was selected as a recipient of the Lucy Blair Service Award.
Pan is being honored as a Worthingham Fellow for excellence in the APTA’s “domain of advocacy” for advancing the profession by improving ethnic and racial diversity within the profession, addressing disparities in health care delivery, and creating a culture of professional responsibility among PT students who raised funds to support physical therapy research.
Since 1992, Pan has received five federal Health Careers Opportunity Program grants, totaling $6.5 million, to address disparities in health care delivery by recruiting and training physical therapists from financially or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
“We are extremely proud of the many national awards garnered by our physical therapy faculty and students over recent years,” said Dr. William E. Cullinan, dean of the Marquette’s College of Health Sciences. “These awards highlight the principal reason why our physical therapy doctoral program maintains such elite national stature – our outstanding faculty.”
Marquette’s program in physical therapy is currently ranked 19th of 210 programs by U.S. News & World Report.
