Felix A. Kalinski, Jr., Ed.D.

Tutorial Assistant Professor of Business Administration and Leadership


Organizational Leadership




My business career includes experience in entrepreneurship, general management, advertising, sales and marketing positions. In 2010, my paradigm shifted to a career in higher education and, subsequently, pursued my doctoral studies.

During the early part of my career, my experience included valuable General Management responsibility after successfully founding the Management Consulting firm called, Baeder Kalinski International Group (BKIG) Inc. BKIG was the pioneer of Search Alliance, an executive search methodology used to market large-scale executive search outsourcing engagements. There were no Human Resource outsourcing activities in any industry, anywhere in the world, at that time. Clients included Computer Sciences Corporation, Chase Manhattan Bank, Citibank, Ernst & Young, KPMG, Jacobs Engineering Group, ICF Kaiser International, ITT Industries, Inc. (Fluid Technology and Sheraton Divisions).

My birthplace was Geneva, Switzerland and have had the privilege of living and working in five countries during my career. As a result, have had to develop outstanding communication skills in multi-cultural environments. In the early part of my career, worked at Compton Advertising Agency renamed Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising in 1988. It was a privilege to work on the Procter & Gamble Co. family of products as a Media Buyer.
