The Tippie College of Businesses announced the winners of the 2018 Alum and Young Alum of the Year awards. Trevor Schauenberg, BBA 1991, will receive the 2018 Alum of the Year Award, while Shalini Hanoman Campbell, BBA 2004, will be presented with the Young Alum of the Year Award. The awards will be presented on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 during the Alumni Awards Luncheon in Chicago at the W Hotel – City Center.

Recipients of these awards are nominated for their continued dedication to the Tippie College of Business. Their involvement may include such activities as assisting with recruitment or placement of students, support of the college’s programming, or service on advisory boards. Both the Alum and Young Alum of the Year recipients are selected with the same criteria, with the Young Alum reaching this level of achievement by the age of 40. 

Finance graduate Schauenberg is recognized as the Alum of the Year for his years of recruiting graduating students to GE, and as a member of the Institute for International Business advisory board. In addition, Schauenberg has created two funds that support Tippie students and initiatives; the Trevor Schauenberg Fund for Diversity supports diversity and focuses on bringing students from the Chicago area, while the Trevor Schauenberg Global Internship Fund provides scholarships and financial assistance to students completing internships abroad.

Schauenberg is president and CEO of GE Capital Industrial Finance, the company’s business focused on financing solutions for its industrial customers. GE Finance is comprised of three operating companies: GE Healthcare Finance, GE Industrial Solutions Finance, and GE Working Capital Solutions. In 2017, these three companies managed $26B of assets and enabled $3B of equipment orders for GE companies in 28 countries. Schauenberg has 27 years of leadership experiences at GE, and previously held the positions of president and CEO of GE Capital’s Americas Direct Segment, several chief financial officer positions, and five years as GE’s vice president of corporate investor relations.

Campbell receives the Young Alum of the Year recognition for the numerous ways in which she gives back to Tippie. The finance and management alumnus is a current member of the Tippie Finance Department Advisory Council and previously served on the School of Management Advisory Council for seven years. Campbell continues to return to campus to talk with students and also served as a panelist at the Tippie Women’s Summit in 2015. Through her position at BMO Capital Markets in Chicago, Campbell has advocated for the employment of Tippie graduates with the organization and has hosted student groups when they travel to the city. Campbell provides financial assistance to the college and encourages other to do the same.

Campbell is currently a director on the Leveraged Finance Sales and Trading Desk at BMO Capital Markets, working with various types of credit investors within the loan and high-yield asset classes.  After graduation from Tippie in 2004, Campbell joined BMO that same year as a member of the Relationship Development Manager program and has also spent time on the Food and Consumer, and Debt Capital Markets teams before becoming director.
