minority-awardsGeorge Mason University President Ángel Cabrera, Dean of the School of Management Jorge Haddock and alumna Ola Sage, MS Technology Management ’99, were honored in the Washington Business Journal’s sixth annual Minority Business Leader Awards on March 21.

The program annually recognizes the region’s top 25 minority leaders based on business success over the past 12 to 18 months.

Before joining the university in 2012 as George Mason’s sixth president, Cabrera served as president of Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona. The Financial Times recognized him as one of the top 20 business school leaders in the world, and The World Economic Forum named him a “Global Leader for Tomorrow” in 2002 and a “Young Global Leader” in 2005.

Since becoming dean of the School of Management in 2009, Haddock has raised $650,000 in gifts and pledges for scholarships and student education improvements.  He also founded the Mason Student Venture Fund, which has raised $250,000.

Sage is the CEO of e-Management, a federal IT company that she founded after graduating from Mason.  She is the recipient of the 2010 Women in Technology leadership award in the Corporate Public Sector Small Business category and SmartCEO magazine’s 2012 Brava! Women Business Achievement award.
