New director named for CCU's Wall Fellows program

  Charles Parisher  
Charles N. Parisher has been named director of the Wall Fellows program of the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration at Coastal Carolina University. He succeeds Ned Cohen, who retired in July.

Parisher has been an instructor and executive-in-residence in the Wall College of Business since fall 2009. He has more than 32 years of experience in business.

Parisher is owner and president of Beverage Consulting Associates. He earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from East Carolina University and an MBA from Winthrop University. He served four years in the United States Air Force as an intelligence analyst and Russian language interpreter. He also worked with the National Security Agency.

Conceived in 1995 by the late E. Craig Wall Jr., a prominent South Carolina businessman and CCU supporter, the Wall Fellows program prepares top students for high-level careers in major U.S. and international corporations and organizations.

In addition to academics, the two-year Wall Fellows program focuses on specific nontraditional areas including interpersonal and communication skills, ethics, personal health and appearance, business and social etiquette, foreign language and cultural skills. The course prepares students for the highlight of the program: a series of internships and international experiences during their senior year.

Since the program was initiated, Wall Fellows have had internships at major companies in New York, Atlanta, London, Barcelona, Mainz (Germany), Brussels, and Santiago, as well as other metropolitan cities. Many graduates of the program have earned leadership positions throughout the United States and abroad.
