James Sartori

Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award

James C. Sartori, Bus Ad ’77

To some being called a cheesehead is an insult. At Jim’s company, Sartori Foods, it’s an honor akin to the many bestowed on their award winning Artisanal cheeses.

Mary McDonnell

Professional Achievement Award

Mary M. McDonnell, Bus Ad ’77

A knack for numbers helps. But for Mary, the keys to success in the fast-paced futures industry have been integrity and a willingness to listen.

Daniel Meyer

Entrepreneurial Award

Daniel L. Meyer, Bus Ad ’83

“Write what you know” could well be Dan’s mantra. He’s founder and publisher of BizTimes Media LLC, which covers Milwaukee’s small business community.

Thomas Kuesel

Thomas J. Kuesel, Bus Ad ’56

Using the real estate savvy that made him a success, Thomas is opening the door to home ownership for more people through his community redevelopment efforts.
