Edgar A. Sandoval, Vice President of North America Marketing for Procter & Gamble, chosen as Graduation Speaker for Rutgers School of Engineering Graduation 2010.

As another successful academic year comes to an end at the Rutgers School of Engineering (SOE), the outstanding achievements and prestigious honors of many accomplished students, faculty, and alumni are reflected upon during Graduation.

Rutgers SOE looked for a Graduation Speaker that was an inspiring example for the newest graduates this year. Edgar A. Sandoval, a Rutgers SOE alumnus and current Vice President of North America Marketing for Procter & Gamble, was chosen for his exceptional accomplishments during his time at Rutgers as well as his professional endeavors and contributions to the community since.

Sandoval received his double-major undergraduate degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering and Sociology with a minor in Mathematics from Rutgers University and continued his education in pursuit of his MBA at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.

While Sandoval received many accolades over the years, including being inducted into the Hispanic Scholarship Fund Hall of Fame and being honored by New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, he has continued to stay true to his Alma Mater, and now returns to speak at the 2010 SOE Graduation Ceremony.

Sandoval, current Vice President of North America Marketing for Procter & Gamble, a company that has over 4 billion consumers in 180 countries, has played a huge rule in advancing diversity within corporate culture and has been heavily involved in building brands such as Tide, Crest, and Downy. These achievements have ultimately rewarded him with the Goldstein Award, Procter & Gamble’s most respected Marketing honor.

Through his inspiring messages derived from his journey to success, Sandoval will truly leave a mark on our newest graduates.

The Rutgers SOE Graduation Ceremony will take place on Monday May 17th, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.
