Recent Award Recipients
DISTINGUISHED ALUMNUS AWARD 2011 - 2012
Jay Vincent and Todd Arbuckle
Vice President and Chief Investment Officer
University of Notre Dame
Education: Notre Dame 1984, MBA University of Notre Dame, 1986
EMBA alumni Todd Arbuckle and Jay Vincent (both from the class of 2010) are the recipients of the 2012 Recent Alumnus Service Award for their efforts in forming and managing NO Conversations on Leadership and Ethics (NDCLE), a Chicago-area alumni group. Each year. the award is presented to MBA and EMBA alumni who have graduated in the past seven years and have made significant contributions to the Mendoza community.
Jay and Todd's vision for NDCLE was to create an alumni-led group that would meet to extend the values-based leadership conversations they had in and out of their classrooms, with a clear commitment to continuing ethics education beyond business school. The monthly conversations and quarterly events - held in the NO Chicago Commons - offer alumni and those associated with NO an opportunity to connect with the university, network with other ND alumni and friends, and engage in meaningful dialogues with high-level speakers. NDCLE's goal is to help to carry on the message of "asking more of business" by engaging participants and guest speakers in thought and discussion around the issues of leadership and ethics in business.
Professionally, Jay Vincent is senior vice president for business development and business practice leader for the energy industry for The Saint Consulting Group. Todd Arbuckle is an Executive Director for JPMorgan Securities. The Office of Graduate Alumni Relations presented them with their awards on May 18 at the MBA graduation rehearsal in the Mendoza College of Business.
