Meet Our Advisory Board

Advisory Board (AB) members are accomplished professionals at senior levels in operational, strategic and investment areas of finance. Typically, AB members graduated from Kellogg more than 15 years ago, but exceptions are made based on level of stature and accomplishments. AB members are recruited via invitation from KFN’s Board of Directors or through referrals from the Advisory Board.
