Waskiewicz Named CIO of the Year


George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology adjunct professor of finance Anthony Waskiewicz has been named CIO of the Year by the Investor Intelligence Network. Waskiewicz works as chief information officer of Mercy, the largest Catholic health care system. Since joining Mercy in 2010, Waskiewicz has been instrumental in helping the health care organization beat its benchmark on a risk-adjusted basis and with less volatility.

The CIO of Year Award was one of 10 award categories recognized at the inaugural Investor Intelligence Awards for Healthcare Plans on Oct. 9. The award recipients recognized at this event represent institutions from across the country.

“Not only is this award a big deal in the corporate world, but it is an affirmation of the quality of his knowledge and the substance of his contribution to the profession and our students. We congratulate Anthony,” said Benjamin Akande, dean of the Walker School.

Kleinman Speaks at Symposium Celebration

Kim Kleinman, assistant director for undergraduate advising, spoke on Oct. 17 at a Washington University Department of Biology symposium honoring Garland Allen’s retirement after 47 years of teaching biology and history of biology. The symposium examined the field of the history of biology in the 20th century, discussing how it differs now than when Allen wrote his influential 1975 book, Life Science in the Twentieth Century.

Kleinman, who presented “Bringing Taxonomy to the Service of Genetics: Edgar Anderson and Introgressive Hybridization,” joined nine other colleagues from institutions throughout North America in honoring this influential scholar. Kleinman received his PhD under Allen in 1997.
