Distinguished Alumnus Award

Gary M. Wells, Bus Ad ’70

Gary Wells is the most successful ice cream man ever to graduate from Marquette University. That's not to say that he drives around in a truck that's blaring music while wearing a white uniform.

Scott Roberts is the president of Deerfield Capital Management, a company in Chicago that oversees more than $12 billion in assets.


Entrepreneurial Award

James R. Imhoff, Jr., Bus Ad ’66

No discussion about real estate in Wisconsin is complete without the mention of Jim Imhoff's name. Jim is the chairman and CEO of First Weber Group.


Service to Marquette Award

Mary E. Cyrier, Bus Ad ’84

From an early age, Mary Cyrier was taught by her parents the importance of serving others. It's a lesson that Mary clearly has taken to heart.


Young Alumnus Award

Steve J. Nooyen, Bus Ad ’88

Steve Nooyen was looking to meld his business savvy with a desire to serve his community. “I didn’t want there to be such separation between what I did at work and that tug to give back at the end of the work day,” he says.


Friend of the College Award

Peter P. Bell, Eng ’71

Peter and his family endowed the Robert B. Bell, Sr., Chair in Real Estate Studies at Marquette in 2001, a tribute to his father who passed away last year that will benefit countless generations of students.
