Dr. Bob Cunningham (BS ’73, MBA ’85, DBA ’96)
CEO, The Cunningham Group and The Heritage Group
Executive in Residence, College of Business 

A three-time graduate of the College of Business, Dr. Bob Cunningham’s entrepreneurial spirit and love of accounting have been woven throughout his career — from starting his own delivery business immediately after college and later an accounting practice, to serving as an instructor at both Louisiana Tech and Grambling State University. In 1999, he and a partner purchased a cable contracting construction company through a partnership with a large telecommunications company where he worked full time after his retirement from teaching in 2006. In addition to his role as CEO of both The Cunningham Group and The Heritage Group, Dr. Cunningham serves as Executive in Residence for the College of Business. He notes, “Given the high concentration and integration of technology in virtually every aspect of the world of business, I hope, through this role, to shine a light on the human element and its role in fostering strong business relationships.”
