Ellen Alemany, Chairwoman and CEO of CIT Group

Unknown-2.jpeg
 In 2013 Ellen Alemany retired as head of the Royal Bank of Scotland Americas and Citizens Financial Group, receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from American Banker the same year. Her retirement would be short-lived: Three years later CIT Group asked her to revamp the commercial lender, which serves middle market clients and small businesses nationwide. Alemany quickly launched a three-year transformation plan that included simplifying and strengthening the company and growing its core businesses.

Her four decades in financial services, largely focused in commercial banking, make her well-suited for the task to revamp one of America’s 100+ year-old companies by focusing on delivering for clients, customers and shareholders. Investors seem to approve, driving shares up 50% since June 2016.





Tom Ricketts, Chairman and Owner of the Chicago Cubs

Unknown-2.jpeg
 After snapping their 108-year championship drought with a World Series win last fall, the Cubs earned another title this past spring when chairman and owner Tom Ricketts was named Sports Executive of the Year at the Sports Business Awards, and, really, who else was it going to be? Since his family bought the Cubs in 2009, Ricketts presided over a makeover of the organization that culminated in a World Series championship in November. Hard to top exorcising 108 years of futility.

In addition to his Cubs duties, Tom is also chief executive officer of Incapital LLC, a Chicago investment bank that packages corporate bonds for retail investors. He is also a director of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation as well as the son of Ameritrade founder J. Joseph Ricketts.





Derreck Kayongo, founder of the Global Soap Project and CEO of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights 

Unknown-2.jpeg
 Derreck Kayongo was born January 25, 1970, in Kampala, Uganda, just before General Idi Amin Dada seized power in a military coup. The new regime became known for its brutality, and today Idi Amin is one of history's most notorious dictators. As violence spread through the country and civil war erupted, Kayongo and his family became refugees in Kenya. He later immigrated to America to attend university. Today, he is a successful entrepreneur and human rights innovator.

Though most well known as a 2011 CNN Hero and founder of the Global Soap Project, Kayongo is an expert in environmental sustainability and global health, as well as the current CEO of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2016 the Georgia State Senate passed a resolution recognizing Kayongo's incredible journey from refugee to CEO.
