Nominations open for WVU Chambers College’s Roll of Distinguished Alumni

2019 RODA Inductees

Nominations are now open for the 2020 class of the John Chambers College of Business and Economics Roll of Distinguished Alumni at West Virginia University. Individuals interested in submitting a nomination may do so through May 29.

To date, 42 Chambers College graduates have been inducted into the Roll of Distinguished Alumni. The College initiated this award in 2011 to coincide with its 60th Anniversary Collection. New members are added each year to recognize the success of outstanding Chambers College graduates. 

“The Chambers College has helped to mold countless successful careers, and our Roll of Distinguished Alumni allows us to recognize and honor those graduates who have made innovative strides in their respective industries,” said Javier Reyes, Milan Puskar Dean of the Chambers College and vice president of Start-up West Virginia. “We look forward to welcoming the next group of inductees whose visionary leadership has transformed the business landscape.”

Last year’s inductees included Amy Cappellanti-Wolf, senior vice president and chief human resources officer of Symantec Corporation; John B. Gianola, retired partner of Ernst & Young; and Nesha Sanghavi, owner and president of UG Apparel and Chicka-d.

Nominees must have graduated from the Chambers College of Business and Economics, must be at least 10 years post-degree and must have distinguished themselves by success in business or life at the regional, national or international level.

This year’s inductees will be honored at a Sept. 25 luncheon during WVU Homecoming Weekend at Erickson Alumni Center on the Evansdale Campus. Click here to submit a nomination.
