Congratulations to John P. Bilbrey who received The Benjamin Botwinick Prize in Business Ethics for 2016.
About the Botwinick Prizes
Each year, under the auspices of The Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Center for Leadership and Ethics, The Benjamin Botwinick Prizes in Business Ethics and Ethical Practice are awarded to an individual or representative of a business organization exemplifying the highest standard of professional and ethical conduct, as well as ethical decision making in any of the professions, including, but not limited to, accounting, advertising, architecture, health care, journalism, law, public service and social service. The Botwinick Prizes in Business Ethics and Ethical Practice in the Professions were established by a generous endowment from the late Benjamin Botwinick, BS ’26 and his wife Bessie.
The Bernstein Center would like to congratulate John P. Bilbrey, Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO, The Hershey Company who accepted the 2016 Benjamin Botwinick Prize in Business Ethics. MBA and EMBA students, faculty, staff, and alumni were invited to a recpetion in his honor where "JP" Bilbrey delivered a keynote address highlighting ethical issues that have arisen during his career and life experiences.

In addition to the Benjamin Botwinick Prizes, Columbia Business School students are selected to receive the Benjamin Botwinick scholarships.
