Honorees announced for Lindner’s 35th Annual CBAAs

Cincinnati Business Achievement Awards to recognize business success, distinguished service

The University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business and the Lindner College of Business Alumni Council has announced the leaders being celebrated at the 35th annual Cincinnati Business Achievement Awards (CBAAs) on March 5 at JACK Cincinnati Casino.

The CBAAs is Greater Cincinnati’s longest-running event that recognizes achievement in business and in service to communities, both locally and globally, while raising funds for scholarships and financial assistance for Lindner undergraduate and graduate students.

“The Cincinnati Business Achievement Awards showcases the business and service excellence that models UC’s passion for innovation and impact,” said Marianne Lewis, PhD, dean of the Lindner College of Business. “Additionally, it empowers our students — the next generation of business leaders — by connecting them to these extraordinary role models and raising funds for student support.”

How has the Lindner College of Business impacted you personally or professionally?

"The UC co-op program got me started in the real world. It is a tremendous program. It attracts top employers and provides students with unique opportunities to gain valuable experience that helps secure employment upon graduation.

Why do you choose to spend time working with the college?

"It really comes down to two things: community and people. You only have so many hours in a day. If the time I spend doing something doesn’t positively move my community forward or allow me to meet and know people with a vision for making a difference, I move on. Time spent at Lindner does both of those things and more. The energy, ideas and dreams of our students are the lifeblood of our future! If I can be just a little part of what feeds that energy and sparks those ideas and dreams, it’s worth every minute."

How has the Lindner College of Business impacted you personally or professionally?

"Lindner has supported my growth by strengthening my ability in public speaking. After graduating, Lindner was actually the first place that provided me the opportunity to present to a class. Over time, I began to feel like I was making an impact. I choose to stay engaged as an alumna because I was once in the same shoes as today's students, trying to figure out what to do and how to do it."

What does it mean to you to receive this award?

"I am deeply honored to be included among an outstanding list of past and present award recipients who have generated a genuine impact on UC students and the city as a whole. Uniting under the strengths of past, present and future members of the UC family is the only way to truly embrace the Boldly Bearcat call-to-action and I am overjoyed to contribute however I am able.
