On June 9th, 2022, the DeGroote community celebrated the 2021 and 2022 recipients of the Wayne C. Fox Distinguished Alumni Award, which celebrates outstanding alumni whose personal accomplishments, reputation, and character have enhanced the reputation of the DeGroote School of Business and McMaster University. This year was a return to the in-person celebration, where DeGroote recognized Claire Gillies, MBA ’01, and Paul McLean, MBA ’81 as the 2021 and 2022 recipients of the award. Congratulations to both award winners!
Celebrating Accolades with Claire Gillies
“I say to everyone in this group, be curious because it will give you knowledge that will make you smarter, be reliable so that you can be trustworthy to others, and be generous with your time because someone else has encouraged you and been generous to help you along the way.” – Claire Gillies, 2021 Wayne C. Fox Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.
Celebrating Accolades with Paul McLean
“I am so proud, humbled and appreciative to be considered for this and I’m really proud to be a part of that list. This kind of an award is really based on the relationships I have developed over the years. I grew up in a multigenerational family business, so one of the things impressed upon me is the importance of relationships.” – Paul McLean, 2022 Wayne C. Fox Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.
