David Olsen BS ’80


David Olsen BS ’80 is in the second year of a doctoral program in medieval history, with a focus on Spain and the Islamic Mediterranean, at Saint Louis University. He retired after serving 35 years in a variety of corporate positions (international business, sales and marketing, chief revenue officer) with start-ups and Fortune 500 companies. Those gigs took him to several countries in Latin America, South Africa, Asia, and Europe. Olsen says his interest in medieval history goes back to the six months he spent in Spain after graduating from L&C.
