The GW School of Business is pleased to announce that Mark D. Lerner, BBA, ’75, will serve as the 2011 graduate commencement speaker. Lou Rosenfeld, BBA, ’80, will deliver the undergraduate commencement speech.

Lerner is a native Washingtonian and principal owner and vice chairman of the Washington Nationals Baseball Club. He is also a principal of Lerner Enterprises, the largest private real estate developer in the Washington, D.C. area. The company was founded by Mark’s father Theodore N. Lerner, a GW Law School alumnus and former George Washington University Trustee and Executive Committee member. Lerner’s son Jacob will be graduating with his BBA/MTA in the 2011 Graduate Commencement ceremony.
