Kimberly Reeve was officially appointed as KPMG Dean of the Jersey City-based institution’s business school Tuesday. Most recently, Reeve served as the dean of academic affairs at the King’s College, where she also served as associate professor of business and chair of the business and finance program. In her tenure, she grew the business and finance program to be the largest major in the school and collaborated with other departments to revamp career services to result in a 100% placement rate of business and finance majors for the past two years.
“During this time of growth and innovation for the Frank J. Guarini School of Business, we are thrilled to welcome Dr. Reeve as the new dean,” Frederick Bonato, executive vice president and provost of Saint Peter’s University, said. “Dr. Reeve’s wealth of experience and expertise will certainly support the progress underway in our business school.”
Reeve’s teaching and research interests include international business, decision-making and negotiations and nonprofit management. She has published and presented research at the European Academy of Management, International Association for Business and Society and the Christian Business Faculty Association. Her work on nonprofit mergers with a co-author recently won the best overall paper award at the International Academy of Business Disciplines.
Prior to joining King’s, Reeve drew on her experience leading development and marketing teams at several national and global organizations to work as a management consultant to businesses and nonprofits. In that capacity, she worked with clients throughout the U.S., Europe, South America and Africa and started the European office of a consulting firm based in the Netherlands.
