A Gala Occasion

Event showcases inspiring alumni

Hundreds of alumni, students, friends, and guests celebrated Berkeley Haas and our remarkable alumni at the 15th Annual Haas Gala in November. The event honored four award winners whose work has redefined how we do business and who continue to improve Berkeley Haas: Business Leaders of the Year Susan Chamberlin, MBA 87, and Stephen Chamberlin; Leading Through Innovation Award winner Albert Lee, MBA 04; and Raymond E. Miles Service Award winner Tony Brekke, MBA 03. Classmates of the award winners came to support them and cheer their accomplishments. Above: Carter Reue, BCEMBA 11, and his wife, Kat Schuett, flank Amy Cheng, MBA 04. Cheng, a longtime volunteer and chair of the Berkeley Haas Alumni Council, welcomed guests to the event. In her opening remarks, she noted how the Haas Gala and the energy in the room showed the power of the network.
