Krispy Kreme CFO to discuss corporate responsibility at WFU lecture Nov. 14

Randy S. Casstevens, chief financial officer of Krispy Kreme, will speak about his company’s plan for corporate responsibility at a Nov. 14 lecture at Wake Forest University’s Calloway School of Business and Accountancy. The 11 a.m. lecture will be in Tribble Hall’s DeTamble Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

Casstevens’ talk, “Krispy Kreme’s Recipe for Corporate Responsibility,” will address the company’s approach to corporate governance and shareholder values in a post-Enron business environment.

Casstevens was featured on the cover of CFO Magazine in August and in the cover story about restoring investor trust. “Because of Enron, companies are really held to a higher standard in terms of what they’re reporting,” Casstevens said in the article. “We want to do whatever we can to increase public confidence in us.”

Casstevens is a 1987 graduate of the Calloway School and a 1995 graduate of the Wake Forest Babcock Graduate School of Management. He is also a member of the Calloway School board of visitors.

The lecture is part of the Calloway School’s Joseph A. Jones Finance Lecture Series, established through a gift from Jones, a 1961 graduate of the Calloway School.
