Malcolm Stevenson Forbes Jr. Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Forbes Media


Steve Forbes is chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media. Under his leadership, the company has launched a variety of new publications and businesses and publishes a number of investment newsletters. Another division of the company is Forbes Investors Advisory Institute. In 1996, Forbes entered the new media arena with the launch of Forbes.com. Now averaging 18 million unique monthly visitors, it has become a leading destination site for senior business decision-makers and investors. Other Forbes websites, including ForbesWoman.com, RealClearPolitics.com, RealClearMarkets.com, RealClearSports.com, and RealClearWorld.com, together with Forbes.com reach nearly 20 million business decision-makers monthly. The company’s flagship publication, Forbes, is the nation’s leading business magazine, with a circulation of more than 900,000. Forbes, combined with Forbes Asia and the company’s licensee editions together, reach a worldwide audience of more than 6 million readers. The circulation of Forbes international editions is 590,500. Mr. Forbes writes editorials for each issue of Forbes under the heading of “Fact and Comment.” A widely respected economic prognosticator, he is the only writer to have won the highly prestigious Crystal Owl Award four times. The prize was formerly given by U.S. Steel Corporation to the financial journalist whose economic forecasts for the coming year proved most accurate. In 1996 and 2000, Mr. Forbes campaigned vigorously for the Republican nomination for the presidency. Keys to his platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits, and a strong national defense. Mr. Forbes continues to energetically promote this agenda.

Mr. Forbes is the coauthor of How Capitalism Will Save Us: Why Free People and Free Markets Are the Best Answer in Today’s Economy, written with Elizabeth Ames, and Power Ambition Glory: The Stunning Parallels Between Great Leaders of the Ancient World and Today…and the Lessons You Can Learn, written with John Prevas. He also wrote Flat Tax Revolution: Using a Postcard to Abolish the IRS and A New Birth of Freedom, a book of bold ideas for the new millennium. In 1985, President Reagan named Mr. Forbes chairman of the bi-partisan Board for International Broadcasting, where he oversaw the operation of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty. Broadcasting behind the Iron Curtain, Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty were praised by Poland’s Lech Walesa as critical to the struggle against communism. Mr. Forbes was reappointed to his post by President George H. W. Bush and served until 1993. A native of Morristown, New Jersey, Mr. Forbes was born in 1947. He graduated cum laude in 1966 from Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts and earned a bachelor’s in history from Princeton University in 1970. Mr. Forbes serves on the boards of The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, the Heritage Foundation, and The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He is on the Board of Overseers of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and on the Board of Visitors for the School of Public Policy of Pepperdine University and previously served on the Board of Trustees of Princeton University for 10 years.


e. j. ourso college of business

Hall of Distinction

LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business has long been at the forefront of producing leaders who make significant contributions to the areas of business, academia, government, and the community at-large. Whether alumni or friends, individuals who have a strong association with the college and have distinguished themselves through their personal and civic achievements are considered annually for the Hall of Distinction. Well before the formal establishment of the E. J. Ourso College in 1928, students attending the university with aspirations in various endeavors were taught the basic principles of entrepreneurship necessary to be successful. Such successes established the foundation later alumni would utilize to achieve their accomplishments. Continuously the college has recognized these ambassadors of LSU. Since 1996, the E. J. Ourso College has honored such individuals via the Hall of Distinction. Nominees for the Hall of Distinction may be submitted by anyone and are solicited on behalf of the E. J. Ourso College by the Dean’s Advisory Council, the College Executive Committee, and past inductees.


Honorees

Rolfe H. McCollister Jr. Anthony B. Ravani Sue Wilbert Turner Joseph C. Winkler


Rolfe H. McCollister Jr. Rolfe McCollister is the founder and president of Louisiana Business Inc., which publishes The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, 225 magazine, inRegister magazine, Daily Report online news, Louisiana NEXT, Welcome magazine, Baton Rouge Region Guide, and other specialty publications. Additionally, Louisiana Business produces the Baton Rouge Business Awards and Hall of Fame, Influential Women in Business, the Top 100 Luncheon, Forty Under 40, and other annual events. A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Mr. McCollister earned his bachelor’s in general studies from LSU in 1978. Four years later, in 1982, The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report’s first issue rolled off of the press. Since that time, Louisiana Business Inc. has grown from two full-time employees and sales of $350,000 to 60 full-time employees and total annual revenue of $9 million. During that time, The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report has received more than 50 national awards, including the 2007 National Gold Award from the Alliance of Area Business Publications for Best Business Newspaper, as judged by the Columbia School of Journalism at the University of Missouri. From 1988 to 1994, Mr. McCollister was an appointed member of the LSU Board of Supervisors and its chairman in 1991. He also served as treasurer for the 2007 gubernatorial campaign of Bobby Jindal and as chairman for Governor Jindal’s transition team. Various organizations have recognized Mr. McCollister

for his accomplishments. Among these recognitions are University High School naming him to its Hall of Distinction, Louisiana Economic Development naming him Small Business Person of the Year, the Advertising Club of Baton Rouge naming him the winner the Goldsby Award for Lifetime Achievement, and being named Louisiana’s SBA Journalist of the Year. A supporter of numerous organizations, Mr. McCollister’s current and past memberships include Rotary of Baton Rouge, Committee of 100, Greater Baton Rouge Chamber of Commerce, Council for a Better Louisiana, Public Affairs Research Council, and the Woodstone Civic Association. Additionally, he is a member of the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business Dean’s Advisory Council, appeared as the keynote speaker for the college’s spring 2010 diploma ceremony, and has appeared as a speaker in LSU Executive Education’s Breakfast to Business Series and as a moderator for the LSU Flores MBA Alumni Association’s Louisiana Looking Up. Mr. McCollister and his wife, Teeta, have been married for 35 years. They are the proud parents of Jeanne and Elizabeth, both of whom work with Mr. McCollister.


LSU has been part of my life for quite a long time and my family’s life as well. I first walked onto the LSU campus 46 years ago as a fifth-grade student at the University Laboratory School. After graduating from high school, I went from being a Cub to a Tiger and received my degree in 1978. I have many friends and fond memories from those years on campus. Like my father, I became a proud alumnus of LSU. My sister and brother can also be counted among LSU alumni. But the greatest gift LSU gave me was my wife, Teeta, whom I met as a student at LSU. We were married in 1977. We have two wonderful daughters, who both came to the LSU campus as children and also graduated from University High. My younger daughter, Elizabeth, chose to attend LSU and graduated from the E. J. Ourso College of Business with a degree in marketing. After graduating from college, my older daughter, Jeanne, started her own business as a tenant in the Louisiana Business & Technology Center incubator on the LSU Campus.

Reflections

As you can see, LSU roots run very deep in my family—and I am proud of that. I am also proud to say I was a friend of E. J. Ourso, the namesake of the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business. Mr. Ourso was an inspiration, and in 1989, he was named Business Report’s Entrepreneur of the Year. I still chuckle when I think of him telling of his start in business, selling chickens on the roadside. He was one of a kind. I learned a lot from spending time with E. J. Ourso. I also gained much during my years as a student at LSU. I am grateful for both. As an adult I have had the opportunity to show my gratitude and give back to my alma mater. I was honored to serve as chairman of the LSU Board of Supervisors in 1991, and have also had the pleasure of serving for many years on the Dean’s Advisory Council of the E. J. Ourso College of Business and on the Board of Visitors for LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication. I am thankful to LSU for what it has given me and my family, and also for what it does as the flagship university of

Louisiana. Our company, like countless others here and abroad, includes LSU graduates and interns among its ranks who contribute every day to the company’s success. The impact of LSU on our state’s quality of life and economy is significant year after year. And what would Saturday nights in the fall be like without our topranked LSU Tigers on the gridiron? Yes, LSU has been a very positive part of my life—and my future certainly has purple and gold in it. Forever LSU is for real. God has blessed me and my family, and I am honored and humbled to join so many distinguished members in the E. J. Ourso College of Business Hall of Distinction. I share this recognition with my family, friends, and staff who helped make it happen. I wish to express my thanks to all of them and to LSU.


Anthony B. Ravani Tony Ravani is the principal attorney with Lotus Law Group, which he founded in 2007. Lotus Law Group is focused on Business and Family Immigration. Additionally, Mr. Ravani is a self-described “serial entrepreneur,” and has built and has profitably transitioned three successful start-up companies during his professional career. All three of these companies were in software as a service type business. A native of Iran, Mr. Ravani earned his bachelor’s and master’s in accounting from the University of New Orleans. He then earned his master’s in quantitative methods and finished all but his dissertation in quantitative methods at LSU in 1980, before earning his juris doctorate from Seattle University School of Law in 2007. In addition to being a member of the Washington Bar, Mr. Ravani is a member of the King County Bar Association, U.S. District Court, American Bar Association, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He also teaches a venture capital backed entrepreneurial start-ups course at Seattle University School of Law. Prior to establishing his start-ups, Mr. Ravani served as chief information officer for ExxonMobil in the 1980s, and worked directly with Bill Gates at Microsoft in the early 1990s to evolve its consumer technology. His accomplishments were described in Bill Gates’ Business at the Speed of Thought as models of business during the digital and Internet era. It was following his time

at Microsoft that Mr. Ravani cofounded three thriving software start-up companies, raised venture capital funds, acted as legal counsel, and profitably transitioned all three of his companies in three years through mergers or acquisitions. Over the course of his career, Mr. Ravani has provided more than 200 hours of pro-bono work annually to defend women’s rights and protect abused women globally. He is also an active alumnus of LSU. In addition to serving as a member of the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business Dean’s Advisory Council, Mr. Ravani has appeared in the LSU Flores MBA Program Distinguished Speaker Series. He is also an adjunct faculty member of the LSU Flores MBA Program and often serves as a guest speaker at the college, including for the LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Fellows. Last December, he was named to the LSU Louisiana Business & Technology Center’s Advisory Board. Mr. Ravani and his wife, Mitra, reside in Belleview, Washington and are the proud parents of two children.


When I was young, I came to LSU to learn English, go to college, and ultimately return back to my country of origin to pursue a career in accounting with my newly earned degree. Running into other students on campus, striving to make new friends, I was frequently asked, “Where are you from?” I would answer, “Iran.” “Isn’t that northeast of Bogalusa?” would be the average response I received. Well, our world today has become so flat, I doubt any LSU student would think any small or remote country in the world could be anywhere in close proximity to Mississippi. It is LSU, the E. J. Ourso College of Business, and international travel for MBAs that is educating the students to be better prepared for much more international careers than when I had come to LSU. At LSU, I was introduced to the world of decision science and the computer field and changed my major. I frequently reminisce on the many nights in Himes Hall and CEBA, where I would spend hours in the computer room trying to complete a project while running to the Student Union for a cup of coffee to

carry me into the a.m. Although it was always upsetting when I had to miss a football game due to my study load, I do not regret all those hours I spent burying myself into my stacks of books now that I have seen the results that were yielded from a little dedication and perseverance. During my PhD program I received a scholarship and earned the privilege of a teaching assistantship for a couple of undergraduate courses in the Quantitative Methods Department. LSU made me feel confident in my education and “rich” as a student with two to three different scholarships. Furthermore, LSU recruiting introduced me to Exxon Corporation, who soon after offered me a reputable position. I feel it was the rigor and content of course materials and the quality of the faculty at LSU that led me into a fruitful career at ExxonMobil and then Microsoft. I had the opportunity to work directly with many leaders of 20 and 21st centuries such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Steve Wynn, Steven Spielberg, Michael Eisner, and many other successful individuals worldwide. The education and core competency

that was developed at LSU allowed me to grow, reach high goals, and travel to many places around the world. The entrepreneur in me was developed over the course of these years and has allowed me to cofound three successful companies and ultimately exit through mergers and acquisitions. From the first day of class when I set foot on the Baton Rouge campus, I was curious and amazed at how well the United States of America manages itself as a united country. As I traveled around the world, I became curious as to how not a single foreign country that I visited compared to the success of our governmental and economic systems. Sparked by this curiosity, I decided to go to law school and learn the fabric of what makes our system work so well. No surprise, I learned it is our constitution, our belief in giving, and the innovative and entrepreneurship ability in our society that has created a system and an economy that is vibrant and unmatched. Today, I practice the kind of law that combines what I learned from that

first day at LSU with the knowledge I gained through the experience I had working with many intelligent people. I now work internationally, helping investors invest in the USA, create jobs, and help our entrepreneurs succeed in their ventures. I also focus my spare time helping underrepresented women that have been abused and are in need of legal assistance. I owe my career success and appetite for helping to my LSU education and training. Today, I am humbly honored to be inducted as a member of E. J. Ourso College of Business Hall of Distinction.


Sue Wilbert Turner Sue Turner is a philanthropist and community activist with an extensive record of working to preserve historical sites and the arts. She is the matriarch of Turner Industries and serves as a member of its senior executive management board. Turner Industries has provided a single vendor solution in heavy industrial construction, maintenance, pipe, module and vessel fabrication, equipment, rigging, and heavy hauling, and associated specialty services for nearly 50 years. A native of Plaquemine, Louisiana, Mrs. Turner earned her bachelor’s in arts & sciences from LSU in 1947. Since that time, she has devoted herself to her children and to multiple causes and organizations to positively impact Baton Rouge and the State of Louisiana as a whole. Her contributions and participation have garnered high praise from various agencies, many of which have sought her guidance and direction. Mrs. Turner has repeatedly been recognized for her efforts, including receiving the National Association of County Parks and Recreation’s Outstanding Contributor Award in 2010, for her efforts and contributions to save BREC’s Magnolia Mound Plantation from demolition. Founded by Mrs. Turner’s late husband, Bert Turner, Turner Industries is headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and serves the petrochemical, chemical, refining, energy, power generation, and pulp & paper industries, among others. As an active participant in Turner Industries’ past, present, and future, Mrs. Turner

has also devoted her time as a member of the boards of several entities, including the Louisiana State Museum, BREC Foundation, Baton Rouge Green, and Junior Achievement of Greater Baton Rouge. She has also devoted herself as a trustee for the National Trust for Historical Preservation, was the founding member of the Louisiana Association of Museums, and was a founding member, with Bert, of the Pennington Council of 100. An LSU Foundation Laureate Society member, Mrs. Turner has served her alma mater as a board member of the LSU Foundation Board of Directors and the LSU Rural Life Museum. Additionally, Mrs. Turner was on the Forever LSU Art Museum Campaign Committee. She is a trustee emeritus for the LSU Museum of Art. Mrs. Turner and her late husband, Bert, have five children—John, Mary, Robert, Suzanne, and Thomas.


Little did I know that my business education would begin just two weeks after my marriage to Bert Turner. He failed to mention his request to his employer at the time, Standard Oil, for a Teagle Foundation fellowship. That, along with the GI Bill and my job in the children’s room of the East Boston Library, were enough to finance an MBA, with honors, from the Harvard Business School for him. Bert often credited his master’s from Harvard with his ability to succeed in the business life he wanted to live. I began my career as a mother to five children. Both of our ambitions were satisfied. On returning to Baton Rouge and his job at Standard Oil, Bert spent several years rotating through a number of departments and experiencing the operation of a major chemical refinery. He was lured from Standard to be vice president of Nichols Construction Company. Owner Bob Nichols passed away tragically 18 months later, leaving his wife as sole owner. Bert served as general manager until Mrs. Nichols sold the company to Yuba Industries, a young

Reflections

conglomerate that grew too quickly and went into voluntary bankruptcy. It was Bert’s dream to own the company and, with the help of friend Puna Eaton and banker Chuck McCoy, he was able to buy Nichols. That was the beginning of Turner Industries.

When Bert retired to emeritus status on the Turner Board in 2000, due to his growing health problems that ultimately caused his passing in 2008, he felt confident in choosing Roland Toups to take his place. With the help of many, many loyal, energetic, and wise men and women, the company continues to grow. After Bert passed away, I guess I was most concerned with my lack of experience in business. Of course there is no way to live up to the legacy Bert left, but I quickly realized that concern with the company’s ability to continue to advance under the leadership of Roland Toups was unwarranted. There was no doubt Roland was capable of filling Bert’s shoes. They worked together for 43 years and shared the same vision for Turner Industries. As a board member I was able to eventually make myself

learn the value of numbers and how to read a profit and loss statement. One of the many things I learned from Bert was the value of LSU in our community and the need for public support of its different colleges. I was asked to serve out Bert’s term on the LSU Foundation Board and that gave me many opportunities to learn of the financial needs of the university as a whole and the value of private giving to LSU. Bert’s actions moved me to follow his example. He always supported my many volunteer, non-profit board involvements, so I did at least learn the “ins and outs” of group activities and fund-raising. For years now, I have lived about as close to LSU as I can get without actually being a part of this tremendous place. It is a great place to be, with so many things going on in and around campus. Following Bert’s leadership, it has been my pleasure to become involved with a number of fine colleges and components—the LSU School of Music, the LSU Museum of Art, the LSU Foundation, and as you might guess,

even the E. J. Ourso College of Business. I was also an old friend of E. J. and Margie Ourso. I really thought Eli was joking when he called to tell me of this great honor, but I can’t resist reflecting on another subject after being inducted into the E. J. Ourso College of Business Hall of Distinction after donating. That leads me to this question: Eli, do you think that since the Turners have donated to the new band hall for the Golden Band from Tigerland that they will make me a Golden Girl now?

Reflections

I am very thankful to have been able to attend LSU. It was an opportunity to continue my education and build upon the foundation established by my parents, teachers, and coaches from elementary through high school. From the moment I set foot on the campus in the summer of 1969, I was in awe of the beauty of the campus and, of course, the magic of Saturday nights in Tiger Stadium.

What I took with me from LSU was broader than the academic benefits. Being away from home provided me an opportunity to grow up and to be responsible. Balancing the competing forces of classroom requirements, work, athletics, and social life was challenging but it was a great way to learn to prioritize objectives and achieve goals. The full educational experience at LSU provided me with a solid foundation, the ability to think and adjust, and to balance numerous conflicting priorities to stay focused on the goal. I was well prepared for the real world upon graduation.

Whenever I have the chance to walk on campus, I flashback to those wonderful but fleeting years with nostalgia and fond memories. I am thankful for the time my wife and I spent at this university and am very proud to be an LSU alumnus. I have tried my very best to live up to the standards expected of me, and I am honored to be included in the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business Hall of Distinction.
