The 2000 Distinguished Alumni Awards
Recognizing Achievement
Chicago GSB alumni are world leaders in business. They set and redefine corporate strategies, envision and execute bold new ventures, and provide tireless service to the public through government and nonprofit entities. Each year, the GSB honors the outstanding achievements of alumni in the corporate, entrepreneurial, and public service sectors with the Distinguished Alumni Awards. Alumni are selected by a committee of fellow graduates to receive the awards, which recognize ongoing contributions rather than a single event or success. The recipients are honored at the annual Alumni Celebration in October. Last fall, Karen L. Katen, A.B. ’70, M.B.A. ’74, of Pfizer was named the distinguished corporate alumna; Joe Mansueto, A.B. ’78, M.B.A. ’80, founder and chairman of Morningstar, was the distinguished entrepreneurial alumnus; and Gary A. Mecklenburg, ’70, president and CEO of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, was the distinguished public service/public sector alumnus.
