Xerox CEO Mulcahy to Be Honored at Wall St. Dinner
Boston College will honor Xerox Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Anne M. Mulcahy with the President's Medal for Excellence at its 18th annual Wall Street Council Tribute Dinner to be held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on April 27.
Since its inception, the event has raised millions of dollars in scholarship endowment funds to support Boston College's Presidential Scholars Program, which draws students from the top 1 percent of college applicants nationally.
The Medal for Excellence, to be presented to Mulcahy by Boston College President William P. Leahy, SJ, honors individuals whose personal and professional achievements exemplify the ideal proclaimed in the University's motto, "Ever to Excel."
Mulcahy became Xerox's first woman chief executive when she was appointed to the post in 2001, and is also the company's first woman chairman. She has been named one of "50 women to watch" by the Wall Street Journal, included among the 50 most powerful women in American business by Fortune magazine, and was selected as one of the 19 best managers of 2004 by BusinessWeek.
Mulcahy's son, Michael, will graduate from Boston College next month. •
