  2. Speaker(s): Vicente Fox, Former President of Mexico
    (Question and Answer period)

    President Fox discussed elements of effective leadership for a changing Latin American context, as well as the transforming role of faith in both public and personal life. He also shared with the Fuller community his perspectives on immigration reform, globalization, free trade, and healing the global divide between rich and poor countries, drawing from his 2007 autobiography, Revolution of Hope: The Life, Faith and Dreams of a Mexican President.

    Taking office as president of Mexico in 2000, Fox was the first president in more than 70 years to be elected from an opposition party, against the then-dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). He served as president for six years, focusing on economic stability and reform in health care, education, and housing, as well as taking steps to reduce poverty.

    A native son of Mexico and the grandson of immigrants from the United States and Spain, Fox worked his way from ranch hand and truck driver to CEO of Coca-Cola Mexico—the youngest in the organization’s history. His political rise from precinct worker to governor to the Mexican presidency was equally swift. Since leaving the presidency, Fox has been involved in public speaking and establishing his presidential library, Centro Fox, which focuses on the development of democratic leadership in Latin America.

The De Pree Center was founded in 1996 by Samuel T. Reeves in honor of his good friend and fellow board member Max De Pree. He did so in recognition of the profound influence Max has had upon him and those with whom Max worked. And he was not the only one to observe the ground-breaking impact Max has had on organizational life. In 1997 Max was selected as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Business Enterprise Trust. The award recognized Max's work to "create a thriving work environment centered around a genuine respect for the skills and contribution of every employee" at Herman Miller. The award also acknowledged his distinct efforts to serve his constituencies in creative and morally thoughtful ways. The De Pree Center hopes to continue and expand upon Max's legacy by, among other things, emphasizing the importance of relational leadership, character and values.

Dr. Walter C. Wright, Jr., a long-time mentoree of Max De Pree, accepted the directorship when Dr. Robert Banks, the first executive director of the Center, left in 1999. Walt has continued to pursue Max's idea of relational leadership and further explore how beliefs shape practice of both individuals and organizations. Over the past several years, Walt has worked to bring to the Center a team of people with diverse educational and experiential backgrounds and areas of expertise.

"I believe that when we're trying to establish a legacy, we try to be competent in establishing and maintaining relationships. The longer I live and the more I see of organizations, the more I'm forced to the conclusion that at the heart of our organizations is always this matter of competence in relationships. I'm convinced that competence in relationships remains most important in making organizations places of realized potential."
