QUALPRO FOUNDER ELECTED TO LMU BOARD OF TRUSTEES
May 14, 2010 - Harrogate, Tennessee — The Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) Board of Trustees welcomed Dr. Charles Holland, the founder and CEO of QualPro Inc., to its ranks during the spring board meeting last week.
A LMU alumnus, Holland developed the multivariable testing (MVT) process while leading efforts to solve a critical problem in a vital nuclear weapons plant during the height of the Cold War. He went on to found QualPro at the urging of quality guru W. Edwards Deming.
Over the last twenty-seven years, QualPro consultants have assisted clients in implementing MVT at over 1,000 companies including many of the Fortune 500. Earlier this year, QualPro consultants implemented MVT to improve LMU’s student recruitment and fundraising efforts.
Holland has authored the book “Breakthrough Business Results with MVT” which discusses the 12-step process of MVT. The book describes and documents MVT’s far-reaching success. LMU business faculty have used the book in their curricula since its release in 2005.
Holland earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from LMU and furthered his education with a master’s degree in mathematical statistics from Florida State University and a doctorate degree in management science with an applied statistics emphasis from the University of Tennessee. Holland and his wife, Shirley, have three children, Britni, Cara and Charlie, and reside in Knoxville.
“It is an honor to have Dr. Charles Holland join the Board of Trustees of Lincoln Memorial University,” said LMU President B. James Dawson. “The University has already experienced impressive results in its initial MVT efforts. Dr. Holland’s visionary leadership will be vital as LMU continues on its trajectory of rapid growth.”
