Event Details

The Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Distinguished Leaders Series presents Circuit City Former CEO Alan Wurtzel, who will discuss the rise and fall of Circuit City. Under his leadership, the company grew from a Mom and Pop store with only $13,000 in investment, to be the best performing Fortune 500 Company for any 15-year period between 1965 and 1995.

 The electronics and appliance company was founded in 1949 by Sam Wurtzel. Alan Wurtzel officially joined the company in 1966, spent seven years in middle and senior management roles, 13 years as CEO and another 14 as a board member of Circuit City. His tenure with Circuit City ended in 2001. Wurtzel is author of "Good to Great to Gone: The 60 Year Rise and Fall of Circuit City."
