Bob L. Moss

Bob L. Moss founded his namesake construction management company, Moss, on the premise that people work for people. His vision, leadership style, and strong work ethic helped to grow his company into a billion-dollar business that is ranked as one of the nation's top 75 general contractors by Engineering News-Record. Moss is also listed as one of Fortune's 100 Best Medium Workplaces.

The construction company owner serves on the Governor’s Florida Council of 100, the World President Organization, the Chief Executive Organization, and the Board of Directors for Watsco. He has been honored by Nova Southeastern University's H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame, the University of Florida Construction Hall of Fame, and Clemson University’s Construction Hall of Fame.

About The Distinguished Lecture Series

The Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) was established by Dean Emeritus Randolph A. Pohlman to inspire students by giving them a glimpse into the minds of successful and outstanding entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Distinguished lecturers articulate lessons learned and provide insight into our often complex business world. Students and the business community benefit from discussions ranging from business ethics to the practical application of academic theory. The general format of the DLS is a presentation, followed by questions and answers, or our speaker may simply "tell their story" and allow our audience to pose questions thereafter.

Initially created for students, the DLS has grown to include undergraduate and graduate students, faculty members, business leaders and distinguished members of our community.

Our past distinguished lecturers include: Angelo Elia, Jack Welch, Larry Bossidy, The Honorable Clarence Thomas, Robert L. Johnson, Alan Potamkin, Ronald Bergeron, Stephen A. Ross, Ph.D., and H. Wayne Huizenga (recipient of Ernst and Young's 2005 World Entrepreneur of the Year).

High profile entrepreneurs and business leaders interested in participating as a Distinguished Lecture Series speaker should contact the Office of Development at (954) 262-5008.
