Reinhard Janson was born and raised in Germany and subsequently lived in Jakarta, Indonesia.  Upon arriving in the United States, he began his college education and earned his Bachelor of Science in International Business in 1977 at the University of Colorado.  In 1983 he earned this MBA in Finance with Thesis Honors from Pace University at White Plains, New York. His thesis research addressed the utility of 90-day US Treasury futures and their contribution to managing interest rate risk. 

As a contributor to the international business community he held management roles based in the United States operating in all three North American countries.  Internationally, he ran the finance operations of several US companies' Germany production, sales and financing subsidiaries. In these multi-nationally diverse environments, he overcame business challenges, and rebuilt integrity, controls, and financial performance.  Additionally, he served as Project Manager for a London-based global company.

He is firmly committed to the contributions of global business to prosperity and peace, and is very thankful of his continued appointment as Adjunct Professor of Management at the University of Texas at Arlington.
