AUT Business School alum Alex Waddell has been honoured for his work to inspire future business leaders.
AACSB International is the world’s largest business education alliance. Each year, its 2020 Class of Influential Leaders challenge recognises 25 notable graduates from AACSB-accredited business schools around the world.
AUT’s Business School gained AACSB accreditation in 2011.
“With this recognition, I hope to be an inspiration for future business leaders who are looking to challenge and push their personal and professional boundaries,” said Alex, who graduated with a Master of Business, People and Employment (First Class Honours) in 2013.
Alex currently serves as the Director of Growth and Capability at Sigmoid Curve Consulting Group. Since joining Sigmoid in 2006, he has served in numerous roles. For over 10 years, he developed and implemented core foundational systems and processes throughout the finance, operations, marketing, and information technology functions. Alex has also recently been appointed President of the Beta Gama Sigma (BGS) New Zealand Chapter. BGS is an international business organisation honouring outstanding business school students. In this capacity, Alex further helps provide graduates with business leadership opportunities.
“It is our privilege to amplify the stories of business school graduates like Alex Waddell who are serving as a force for good in the world,” said Tom Robinson, AACSB president and CEO. “AUT prepares its graduates to lead with enthusiasm and dedication, and Alex’s inspirational achievements are to be celebrated.”
