Peter Drucker writes William A. Mindak, director of the executive MBA program at the School of Business at Tulane University, recommending Marty Davidson, president of Southern Pipe and Supply Company, for admission to the Tulane executive MBA program. Drucker writes that Davidson is an outstanding young executive and businessman, who "built a small, family-owned local jobber into a strong regional chain throughout the Southeast and Texas." In the postscript, Drucker suggests that Davidson be hired as an instructor in Mindak's program due to Davidson's knowledge about building and managing small, family-owned businesses.
