We are excited to introduce the newly formed Leeds MBA Alumni Board at the Leeds School of Business. This Board’s mission is to engage and serve MBA Alumni, cultivating a community that enhances the value of the Leeds MBA Degree.

After the successful launch of the Leeds GOLD Board (Graduates of the Last Decade) in 2012, the Leeds Board of Alumni and Friends began assessing ways our MBA alumni could be more deeply engaged with Leeds. Faculty and staff were asked to nominate MBA alumni and those alumni were then invited to apply for the board. A committee made up of staff, faculty, MBA students and members of the Leeds Board assembled the inaugural group to represent a diversity of class year, industry and skill set.

We are pleased to announce the following individuals as the first members of the Leeds MBA Alumni Board:
