Kellogg Magazine  |  Spring 2017



Jeff King ’87

Over 100 Kellogg alumni gathered at the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum for the DFW club’s 2016 “Welcome to Texas” summer party. Summer interns, first-year club members and current club members shared a fabulous lineup of food and drinks, along with a fantastic tour of the museum. Kenji Hashimoto ’97, SVP of American Airlines, spoke to the guests and welcomed them to the DFW Club.

The Kellogg Leadership Forum, a group of 200 senior executives in the DFW market, met for their Fall Roundtable Luncheon at Hotel Zaza. Host PwC Strategy& led a lively discussion entitled, Strategy that Works: How Winning Companies Close the Strategy-to-Execution Gap. Much thanks to Casey Kirkpatrick ’07 for putting the session together.

The quarterly event is designed to have “Kellogg support Kellogg.” Meetings rotate from one Kellogg alum’s office to another, and pick a topic that would be interesting to this senior executive group. The event starts with a brief networking session followed by lunch. The host alum then takes the group through a topic and conducts a discussion with fellow Kellogg forum members.

Those interested should contact Jeff King about hosting a future Kellogg Leadership Forum.
