Craig Kensek is currently at Gurucul, a firm involved in using user entity behavior analytics and identity analytics. These assist in detecting anomalies occurring in networks and identifying who has more access than they should be entitled to. He’s also involved with VLAB, the SF Bay Area chapter of the MIT Enterprise Forum; it is a global nonprofit dedicated to connecting Silicon Valley’s entrepreneurs, industry experts, VCs and private investors. P.S. Weight < IQ!

Janice Kimball Key is enjoying retirement! She lives at Lake Tahoe with her husband Stephen. They travel and enjoy the outdoors. She spent the last 15 years prior to retirement in education; she started three charter schools, taught middle school Social Studies and developed curriculum which won awards. She says that she probably should have gotten a Master’s in Education, not an MBA. (Although the pay in the private sector was a heck of a lot better!)

For the past seven years, Rick Linde has been running a boutique executive search firm called Chemistry. It’s been a lot of fun and has done well. His recruiting tends to focus on senior-level searches in media, technology and entertainment. Most of the job descriptions have the word “digital” displayed prominently. For the past 4 1/2 years, he and his family have been living in Harlem, an up-and-coming neighborhood in Manhattan. They’re currently in the process of buying a weekend place up in New Paltz, New York.

Steven Stirling has had the fortunate opportunity to work for a number of large nonprofits over the past 15 years. For the past three years, he’s been blessed to lead MAP International as president and CEO. Working collaboratively with staff, board, volunteers, partners and donors they provide lifesaving medicines and supplies to 10 million people in need around the world. CNBC named MAP number two among top 10 charities changing the world in 2016. He’s thankful for KGSM for giving him the foundation to enable him to do this.

During Reunion weekend, Tom Williamson and his wife Kim (IL alum) had an early 30-year reunion with Dan and Beth Bohn ’82, Karen Dahl ’82, Geoff Dorflinger ’82, Janet and Glen Madeja ’82, Don and Susan Ullmann ’82, and Kellogg’s own Julie Hennessy. They had a fun weekend including dinners, brunches, a football game, a boat cruise, a tour of Kellogg and watching the Cubs clinch the NLCS. Some are retired, some are slaving away, but all had fun!
