BizTimes Media recently recognized Carthage President John Swallow and Vice President Abigail Hanna as two of the region’s “Notable Leaders in Higher Education.”

President John Swallow and Abigail Hanna were recognized as Notable Leaders in Higher Education b... In January, the Milwaukee media outlet featured the two senior administrators among 24 honorees from southeastern Wisconsin colleges and universities. Nominated by BizTimes staff and readers, recipients of the new award “demonstrate the quality of higher education leadership in the region and their dedication to developing the next generation of talent.”

The special feature highlights President Swallow’s commitment as chair of the Higher Education Regional Alliance to eliminate equity gaps and fortify the workforce. HERA, a network of 18 institutions and partner organizations, recently established a joint retention goal and introduced a catalog of badge and certification programs.

The Notable Leaders profile describes Ms. Hanna, Carthage’s vice president of administrative planning and innovation and chief organizational development officer, as “a force for positive change.” In part, the article praises her leadership during the College’s team name re-evaluation and change.

“Milwaukee’s future is based on the talent it can create, attract and retain,” BizTimes Publisher Dan Meyer said in a press release. “These leaders in higher education are enriching the minds that will keep Milwaukee at the forefront of the key professions and industries that make our economy grow.”

Biz Times previously selected President Swallow for its “Wisconsin 275” list in December, which featured the most influential executives shaping the state’s economy.
