"These candidates are selected for their professional success, contribution to community involvement and an ongoing commitment to continuing education," said Anderson Foundation Board Advancement Committee Chair, Sheri Milone. "This year we received nominations for an extremely talented pool of business leaders that made the selection process very difficult. They were all very deserving, but these three candidates came to the top of the committee's list."

The Anderson Foundation Board also recognizes three young alumni under the age of 40. Raul Anaya (BBA, 2003); Jason Burns (BBA, 2006 and MBA, 2008) and Victor Garcia (BBA, 1992) have already distinguished themselves early in their careers and show promise of continued growth in the years ahead.

"This annual tradition allows us to celebrate the very best the Anderson School of Management has to offer," says Anderson Foundation Board Chair Carol Cochran.
"And it confirms what we already know, that Anderson graduates are making a difference in New Mexico and beyond."

Professor Rich Brody is the recipient of the 2009 Faculty Community Leadership Award. All full-time faculty members are eligible, with the exception of Deans, Sr. Associate, Associate and Assistant Deans. Faculty must have demonstrated leadership in enhancing the Anderson School of Management's visibility and relations with the business community by creating connections, providing leadership and being actively involved.

"Our faculty create the foundation for our students' success, and some achieve a very high standard for community engagement, too. This award is an important way to recognize those multi-talented faculty leaders," said Anderson Interim Dean Amy Wohlert.

The Anderson Hall of Fame honorees will be recognized at the 20th Anniversary Hall of Fame reception and dinner awards presentation on March 12, 2009 from 6:00-9:00pm at the Student Union Building on the UNM main campus.
