Cameron School of Business Names Outstanding Alumni Recipients

Thursday, March 22, 2018

The 2018 Cameron School of Business Outstanding Alumni recipients Brad Heath ’96, ’07M, Lauren Henderson ’12M and Roy Page ’84 all agree that UNCW is one of the best places to return to as alumni.

In the words of one of Brad Heath’s former professors, Duke Energy/Gordon Hurlbert Professor of Operations Management Drew Rosen, “Brad is a true active alumnus, not one who just gets a degree and walks away.”

Heath, vice president of operations and marketing for Family Medical Supply, said, “I just love UNCW and it’s always been the right choice.”

From serving as chair of the UNCW Alumni Association to establishing a scholarship, find out more about how Heath continues to give back to his alma mater.

Described “as multi-faceted as a diamond,” by Stephen Harper, Duke Energy/Betty Cameron Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship, Lauren Henderson is the chief financial officer of CastleBranch and president of its innovation division, tekMountain.

Steadily rising through the ranks at CastleBranch while earning her M.B.A. at UNCW, she enjoyed the flexibility the program offers working professionals, describing it as the perfect match for her natural math and leadership skills. “I wasn’t just exposed to the accounting side of things, I graduated armed with corporate strategy skills.”

In addition to being an avid Skee-Ball player, she is a Cameron Executive Network mentor and member of the board of directors for both the Good Shepherd Center and Wilmington Business Development. 

Though he graduated from UNCW in 1984, Roy Page says he has never left the classroom. As CEO and founder of Fuse 40, LLC, a specialized strategic marketing communications and brand development company, he is constantly reading and studying to soak up all that is happening in advertising, one of his many passions.

“My father’s wish for me was to make a living with my mind,” he said. A father himself, Page authored “A Letter to Evan,” a book about divorce based on a letter written to his son.

All three honorees were presented with “Soaring Seahawk” statuettes at a recognition breakfast during the Cameron School of Business’ annual Business Week.
