Keith Whittingham, an associate professor of management science at Rollins' Crummer Graduate School of Business, has been named to Winter Park Magazine's annual list of most influential residents.

Whittingham is in good company—past honorees have included notable Tars such as vice president for student affairs Micki Meyer, dean of religious life Katrina Jenkins, and President Grant Cornwell and his wife, Peg Cornwell, among others.

Whittingham's inclusion on this year's list speaks to a long passion for local and global sustainability. As a professor, Whittingham has traveled worldwide, partnering with students and farmers on sustainability missions through Rollins Global Consulting Projects. He has been essential in developing MBA courses that use enterprise and entrepreneurship to address global problems. And he's a socially-conscious entrepreneur himself—serving as the CEO of Artfx Cafe, a fair-trade coffee distributor that provides microloans and infrastructure support to the communities that host its farmers.

Whittingham isn't the only person to make this year's list with a connection to the College. Architect Jack Rogers is a founding board member of the Rollins Museum of Art. You can view the entire list of 2022 "Influentials" here.
