Kristi Ross

The C-Suite Speaker Series started in 2014 to commemorate when the Brennan School of Business earned accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This series brings top C-suite executives from leading companies and entrepreneurs in the Chicago area and beyond to campus for the chance to speak and engage with students, faculty, and other members of the business community.

As part of this event, the Brennan School of Business will present the selected speaker with the James W. Haugh Award for Entrepreneurship and Ethics in Business. Named for the former chairman of the Dominican University board of trustees and KPMG national practice director, the Haugh Award is presented to an entrepreneur or other principal in a family-owned business whose achievements reflect not only extraordinary business acumen but also a dedication to community and personal integrity.
