Romero, President, Terradigm Inc., have been selected as this year’s recipients.

“I am impressed by the high quality of nominees we received for these awards,” said Kathy Sporing, Senior Vice President and Regional Private Banking Manager at Wells Fargo and the Chairperson for this year’s event. “While all of our alumni nominees were impressive, these three really set themselves apart with their commitment to making a difference, both in their professional accomplishments and contributions to the community.”

Michael J. Glennon has been President of Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute since November 1998. He has been instrumental in TVI’s 21% increase in enrollment over the past three years as the result of such initiatives as increased distance learning options, a westside campus, and a workforce training center.

In 2001, he received the Zia Award for Community Service from the University of New Mexico Alumni Association. Glennon received both his BBA (1971) and MBA (1974) from The Anderson Schools.

Eric M. Pillmore assumed the newly created position of Senior Vice President – Corporate Governance for Tyco International in August 2002. Prior to his role at Tyco, Pillmore held executive roles at Multilink Technology Corporation, General Instrument Corporation, and General Electric Company. He has been a guest lecturer at business schools around the country, speaking to students about ethics and governance, and works with Deloitte and Touche to develop curriculum for college accounting courses that integrates ethical concepts and principles into technical materials used by business students nationwide. Pillmore, who received his BBA from The Anderson Schools in 1975, is an active member of The Schools’ National Advisory Board.

Michael A. Romero founded Terradigm Inc. in 1993 to provide project and financial management services to government and commercial clients. Inc Magazine selected Terradigm for its 2001 Inc 500 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

Romero received his Bachelor of University Studies from UNM in 1980 and his MBA from The Anderson Schools in 1982.

Awards will be presented to Glennon, Pillmore and Romero at the Hall of Fame Dinner at the Sheraton Old Town in Albuquerque. The event is Thursday, May 6 with no-host cocktails at 6:00 p.m. and dinner at 7:00 p.m. The major sponsors for this year’s event to-date are Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of the West, Jaynes Corporation, KPMG LLP, and PNM.
