UWAG, LLC is proud to announce that Keith Gillies, CFP®, UWAG, LLC, COO and Managing Principal of Wealth Solutions, LLC,has been named to the University of New Orleans’ 2022 class of the UNO 25, an initiative recognizing 25 high-impact businesses that are owned or led by University of New Orleans alumni. More than half of UNO’s 75,000 alumni, many of whom are innovators and leaders in their fields, live in the Greater New Orleans region.
Each year UNO 25 identifies, recognizes and celebrates 25 high-impact businesses or organizations owned or led by UNO alumni. University of New Orleans alumni are leaders in their fields and play a key role in creating economic opportunity. UNO 25 highlights these businesspeople and encourages them to share their stories with fellow UNO alumni. UNO 25 aims to showcase the entrepreneurial success of former UNO students representing various fields and professions including technology, engineering, healthcare, urban planning, education, accounting, hospitality, and more.
“I think what stands out about this year’s list is the diversity of industries that are represented, as well as the tremendous accomplishments of everyone on the list,” said Rachel Massey, UNO’s assistant vice president of alumni affairs. “It’s eye-opening to see the prominence of our alumni base. Everywhere you look, there are UNO alumni who are excelling in their chosen fields.”
The university solicited nominations and applications for the UNO 25 earlier in the year, and a selection committee chaired by President Nicklow chose the 25 recipients of the honor.
Honorees were celebrated during an awards luncheon at The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans on February 10, 2022. For more information about the 2022 honorees and the selection process, click here.
