Distinguished Alumnus Awardee - Majdi Abulaban, MBA ‘90

The Distinguished Alumnus Award is presented to the alumnus/na who has a record of personal accomplishment, professional achievement and good global citizenry. This year’s recipient, Majdi Abulaban, reflects the essence of each award criteria.

Beginning as a manufacturing engineer in Warren, Ohio in 1985, and expanding into management of various divisions within Delphi, to his position today as senior vice president of Delphi and president of Delphi Electrical/Electronic Architecture, Delphi Asia Pacific, Majdi Abulaban is a transformational and global leader, as demonstrated by this remarkable career.

In addition to his professional achievements, Abulaban has been instrumental in expanding Case Western Reserve’s outreach to alumni in Shanghai, China. His volunteer efforts serving as vice chairman of the Shanghai Association of Enterprises with Foreign Investment and a member of the Corporate Advisory Board of Case Western Reserve University's Institute for Management and Engineering have been a great benefit to the our alumni and the University community at large.

More recently, at our Diploma Ceremony in May 2016, Abulaban graciously addressed our graduating class -- a true reflection of his allegiance to his alma mater.

Join us in honoring Abulaban for his remarkable professional achievements and global impact on behalf of Weatherhead.  

Outstanding Alumna Awardee - Susan Mucciarone, MBA ‘84

The Outstanding Alumni Award was established to honor and recognize alumni service and dedication to the Weatherhead School of Management. Susan Macciarone’s dedication to Weatherhead can be seen through her avid volunteerism and support of the school.

For the past three years, Mucciarone has contributed her time and expertise as a volunteer member of Weatherhead’s Visiting Committee. In this role, Mucciarone has been generous in her counsel and is a valued advisor to the Weatherhead leadership. More recently, Mucciarone has committed to serve as a volunteer on the recently formed Dean’s Search Committee.

Since receiving her MBA (‘84), Susan has been a committed participant in our alumni and career management activities, specifically in the Philadelphia and New York City and her generosity is also reflected in her consistent support of the Annual Fund.

We collectively thank Mucciarone for her support of Weatherhead and for setting a remarkable example for all alumni to follow.
