On May 31, 2006, Joe Levy (Kellogg, ’47) was presented the Kellogg Alumni Master Entrepreneur Award for his support of entrepreneurial practice at Kellogg. Levy, chairman of Levy Venture Management, car dealership entrepreneur, and a founding director of Computer Discount Warehouse, has clearly illustrated his commitment to the entrepreneurial spirit by facilitating a long-running weekly meeting of entrepreneurs as well as through his contributions to Kellogg. Levy has played a major role in Kellogg’s development with gifts such as the endowment for the Joseph and Carole Levy Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship chair.
NUAMPS helped to celebrate the event with a twelve-minute documentary tribute to Mr. Levy’s accomplishments as emotionally narrated by those who know him well. Kellogg faculty, staff, and alumni joined with fellow entrepreneurs in expressing their admiration in Levy’s strong principals and compassion.
