Ellen R. Alemany, chairwoman and CEO of CIT, received the Leadership Legacy Award from the Center for Executive Succession at the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business Center.
The award honors those who are building a legacy of leadership talent, and delivering strong business, reputational and social performance. Alemany is the fourth leader to ever receive the award.
“The Leadership Legacy Award sets a high bar for CEO performance and Ellen’s track record of consistently delivering business results, developing strong cultures and cultivating leadership talent exemplifies the spirit of this recognition,” Patrick Wright, professor and director of the Center for Executive Succession, said. “Ellen leads with integrity, inclusion and purpose, and establishes the model for future leaders.”
Alemany was honored at a virtual celebration with University of South Carolina students, faculty and staff, including Wright and Peter Brews, dean of the Darla Moore School of Business. Alemany led a discussion on resilient leadership with students and participated in a town hall forum to discuss a range of topics from attendees.
“This recognition honors the most critical aspects of effective leadership – investing in human capital that can contribute to a strong culture and drive sustainable results,” Alemany said. “It was my privilege to accept this award and to meet with the students, who will ultimately carry forward the mantle of leadership in their own way.”
