TOMS Shoes CEO to Deliver Lecture on Business Ethics at Gonzaga

allingJim Alling, CEO of TOMS Shoes, will present Gonzaga University’s 7th annual Aram Lecture on Business Ethics at 6 p.m., Sept. 14 in the Jepson Center’s Wolff Auditorium. The free lecture is titled “TOMS: Improving Lives through Business.”

Embedded in TOMS’ business model is the ethos to make a positive difference in the world. To that end, TOMS helps address need and advance health, education and economic opportunity for people worldwide, according to a press release.

Alling has more than 30 years general management and marketing experience in consumer packaged goods and consumer retailing, having served as an executive at four top global companies: Starbucks, T-Mobile, Nestle and most recently TOMS, for which he was named CEO in April.

The endowed lecture serves as a tribute to John Aram, a former Gonzaga Trustee and benefactor whose long and dedicated service to the forest industry spurred Weyerhaeuser Company, Boise Cascade Corp., Potlatch Corp., the George F. Jewett Foundation, and many industry associates and friends to establish John L. Aram Chair of Business Ethics at Gonzaga. The lecture is designed to provide students with a better understanding of business and government ethical issues.
