Pepperdine Graziadio Honors the 14th Annual George Award Winners

Pepperdine Graziadio Business School Dean Deryck J. van Rensberg opened the 14th Annual George Awards with a quote from founder George Graziadio: "If better is possible, good is not enough." The 14th Annual George Award Winners showcased what it means to be a business and world leader by focusing on those who are engaged socially, environmentally, and ethically within their business practices. According to Pepperdine Graziadio Board Member Stevan R. Calvillo, “the George Awards follow the theme of George Graziaidio’s expectancy of excellence. The recipients are, and satisfy, the expectancy of excellence.” Pepperdine Graziadio Business School is proud to honor and recognize these ten individuals who go above and beyond and identify as leaders who act with integrity, value compassion, and lead with a courageous spirit.
