Farrar CFO completes Harvard training

By The Mercury

Kraig Vondran of Manhattan is among 160 executives from around the world to complete training in the Harvard Business School’s Executive Education Program.

Vondran, chief financial officer at Farrar Corporation, a ductile iron foundry and machining company in Manhattan and Norwich, completed Harvard’s Program for Leadership Development (PLD), an accelerated learning experience incorporating one-on-one coaching, living groups, personal strategy projects and practical applications led by full-time Harvard Business School professors.

The program meets executives’ needs and leadership challenges while delivering the key benefits of an executive Master of Business Administration degree.

During the seven-month program, Vondran completed four required modules online and two on-campus sessions, each lasting two weeks with intensive group learning. He will return to the Boston-Cambridge campus in November for an optional week-long program focusing on negotiations and strategic decision making.

Upon completion of the program, Vondran will become a Harvard Business School alumnus.

The PLD is Vondran’s second experience at Harvard Business School. He completed the Driving Corporate Performance program in 2011.

Vondran has worked for Farrar since 2007.
