ASU Alum Hagar to Present Wells Fargo Lecture in Business

Dallas-based entrepreneur Kelby Hagar will present "From ASU to the Business World" at the Angelo State University Wells Fargo Distinguished Lectureship in Business on Thursday, April 28.

The annual lecture will be at 11 a.m. Thursday in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center, which is in the Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive, on the ASU campus.

Hagar, originally from Hereford, graduated with honors from ASU in 1991. He also graduated with honors from Harvard Law School in 1995.

In 2002, he formed Digital Witness, a Dallas-based company that provides video management services to restaurants and retail companies. The company serves nearly 1,000 facilities, including Outback Steakhouse, Sonic and Luby's Cafeteria locations.

Hagar started his professional career by joining the national law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher after leaving Harvard. He worked in the corporate law division with companies such as Nortel and Tenet Healthcare.

He later founded GroceryWorks.com, serving as the Internet-based grocery company's CEO for 18 months. The company merged with the Safeway supermarkets. The Tesco shopping chain later joined Safeway as a co-owner.

Hagar worked as a vice president with the Hunt Investment Group in Dallas before starting Digital Witness.

The Wells Fargo Distinguished Lectureship in Business was established in 1995 to strengthen the relationship between the San Angelo business community and Angelo State University and to provide ASU students with exposure to business leaders who can offer practical solutions to management problems. Wells Fargo of San Angelo underwrites the annual lectureship.
