Study Hall principals tapped for two Tampa Bay organizational boards

Study Hall owner/partners Rodney Kayton and Rob Iles have been tapped for seats on advisory boards for two separate education-related organizations in Tampa Bay.

For 2013, Rodney Kayton (Managing Partner) will sit on the Inaugural Advisory Board for the Marketing Department in the Sykes College of Business at the University of Tampa. This board–headed by Hemant Rustogi (Dana Professor of Marketing)–has been established with the purpose of enlisting Tampa Bay business leaders to provide insights to the University to ensure graduates are equipped with the optimum skills and tools when they graduate. (

For the same time period, Rob Iles (Partner, Managing Director) will sit on the Marketing Committee for the Hillsborough Education Foundation. This business peer panel, comprised of Tampa Bay business and marketing executives, provides input and counsel to the Foundation’s marketing staff, which is headed by the foundation’s Marketing Director Virginia McGrath.
