Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management honored DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman as Business Leader of the Year. Last month more than 600 corporate leaders, government officials, educators, students and friends attended a program and banquet in Baltimore, Md., to recognize Ellen’s accomplishments.
“Fortunately for science and technology leader DuPont, Ellen knows that in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing, increasingly global business environment, the ability to adapt to current conditions and anticipate new developments is just as important as recognition of and adherence to the company’s traditions and core principles,” said John Dinkel, publisher of the Baltimore Business Journal and master of ceremonies.
"Ellen Kullman leads one of the world's foremost corporate innovators, a company that develops remarkable scientific solutions that have the power to transform people's lives in countless ways," said Loyola's President, the Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J. “DuPont and [Ellen] are also known for their commitment to corporate ethics and sustainability, values that are both critical to long-term success in today's business world, as well as principles that are central to Loyola's mission. We are delighted to recognize an executive of her caliber as our Business Leader of the Year."
Karyl B. Leggio, dean of the Sellinger School of Business and Management, said, "Ellen leads an exceptional, innovative company with thriving operations in more than 70 countries. She does so with a clear regard for sustainable business practices. As such, she represents the best possible example of how to lead with vision and integrity."
