About the Favatas Lecture Series
The Favatas Lecture Series was established by Louise Woerner and Don Kollmorgen, who named the annual event after their godson and Saunders graduate, Dionisios Favatas ’01 (international business), also a contributor to the endowment—which was established to promote a relationship between recent RIT employed graduates who would discuss the real world of business to RIT students. Woerner is the founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of HCR, Inc., and the 1989 winner of the Herbert W. Vanden Brul Entrepreneurial Award from the Saunders College of Business. Kollmorgen is a long-time consultant to the health insurance industry, and Favatas works as head of marketing clouds, customer data platforms, and identity solutions for Capgemini.
