Sturgeon Bay native and U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Paul Schlies says much of what he needed to know about leadership came from his business education. Schlies attended Marquette University and graduated in 1989 with a degree in business administration. He says no matter what a sailors' rank is business and military principles have a lot of interchangeability.
Rear Admiral Schlies was named Commander of the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group on June 21st. He previously served as deputy commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and the U.S. 5th Fleet in Bahrain.
