UVM Alum and Dish Network Leader Returns To Campus

Looking to know more about the media and entertainment business?

For our annual Dean's Speaker Series, scheduled for noon, September 27 at the Waterman Memorial Lounge, the University of Vermont Grossman School of Business is proud to welcome UVM alum, Stanton Dodge, back to campus. 

Mr. Dodge serves as Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of DISH. He is responsible for all legal and government affairs for DISH and its subsidiaries and oversees Corporate Communications. 

Since joining DISH in November 1996, he has held positions of increasing responsibility in the legal department, and was responsible for human resources from January 2010 through July 2011.  

Stanton was recently named as one of the 2014 recipients of the “Legends in Law” Award by the Burton Awards Program in association with the Library of Congress, recognizing outstanding corporate general counsel in the United States. In 2013, he was selected for the inaugural The Legal 500 – Corporate Counsel 100: United States, recognizing the 100 most influential in-house lawyers in the United States.

Stanton is actively involved in many political, charitable and philanthropic causes. He serves on the board of directors of National Jewish Health, and is a member of Colorado Concern and the E-Discovery Committee of the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. 

Prior to joining DISH, Stanton was a law clerk to the Hon. Jose D. L. Marquez of the Colorado Court of Appeals. He received his J.D., magna cum laude, from Suffolk University Law School in 1995 and his B.S. in accounting from the University of Vermont in 1991.

Mr. Dodges' speech will focus on his journey from UVM, diving deeply into the media and content business.  

“We are delighted to welcome Stanton as this summer's Deans Series Speaker,” said Grossman School of Business Dean Sanjay Sharma.  “His fascinating business insights and experience will excite and inspire our students.”

The Deans Speaker Series event will be held on Wednesday, September 27 at the Waterman Memorial Lounge, beginning 12 noon, is free and open to all.
