Anthem President, Chris Sinclair, has been chosen to receive this year’s renowned Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business. Sinclair will be honored at an award ceremony in late October 2017, which will highlight his illustrious career and The Anthem Group’s success.
Sinclair founded The Anthem Group; a collection of companies in the live entertainment, hospitality, large-scale event production, and experiential marketing and placemaking industries, while still just a student. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Anthem started as Anthem Entertainment, a specialized event-marketing firm that soon grew to encompass business-to-business as well as public-facing programs. Over the years, The Anthem Group has expanded exponentially from its humble beginnings as a boutique Boston-based events agency to a multi-industry enterprise that is active in over 70 markets across five continents.
This honor showcases Anthem’s major accomplishments but also Chris’ devotion to using Anthem’s platform for various philanthropic endeavors, which Notre Dame recognized in 2016 by bestowing Chris and Anthem with the prestigious Ask More of Business Award from the Mendoza College of Business.
Sinclair stated that “being awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award is a tremendous personal and professional honor. A distinguished alumni award from anywhere is an incredible recognition, but to receive one from Notre Dame is beyond humbling. The award recognizes and is symbolic for everything that I strive for in my career: to do both well and good at the same time, to contribute to the Notre Dame community that has given me so much and to the global community that needs so much”.
Chris is among the youngest recipients ever of these esteemed and celebrated awards.
