Marquette Business dean recognized as Wisconsin Titan 100 business leader for second consecutive year

Tim Hanley has led College of Business Administration since March 2020

Tim Hanley, the acting Keyes Dean of Business Administration, has once again been recognized as a member of the Wisconsin Titan 100 by Titan CEO, which honors business leaders who demonstrate exceptional leadership, vision, passion and influence in their fields.

The awardees are all Wisconsin CEOs and C-suite executives representing both the public and private sectors. This year’s award winners represent companies that collectively employ more than 140,000 people and generate $76 billion in annual revenues. Titan CEO will hold an awards reception for the group at Fiserv Forum on Jan. 18, 2024.

Hanley was among the inaugural group of honorees in 2022-23, alongside President Michael R. Lovell.

“I’m honored to be included in this prestigious group once again,” Hanley says. “Titan 100 honorees play vital roles in shaping Wisconsin’s future for the better, and that’s a vision I try to pursue in my capacity as acting dean. I’m humbled by the honor and wish to thank everyone who works with me to make our college a more innovative, prosperous place for our students.”

The Titan 100 program is a product of Titan CEO, which brings executives together through private events, roundtables, private coaching and high-level networking.

About Tim Hanley

In March 2020, Hanley became acting dean after the death of former Keyes Dean Dr. Joe Daniels, who hired Hanley as the college’s first-ever executive-in-residence in October 2019.

Hanley oversaw the construction of O’Brien Hall, the new home for the College of Business Administration and the Graduate School of Management that opened in January 2023. The new 100,000-square-foot, $60 million building is the largest fully donor-funded construction project in Marquette’s history. Standing at 16th St. and Wisconsin Ave., O’Brien Hall anchors the west gateway to campus, frequently hosting marquee business events such as the Deloitte Wisconsin 75 and the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Technology Council. The successful connection of industry leaders with college faculty, staff and students has been a hallmark of Hanley’s tenure as acting dean.

Before his time as dean, Hanley was named the College of Business Administration’s Distinguished Alumnus of the Year in 2012. He also served on the college’s Dean’s Council, the University Leadership Council and the Campaign Executive Committee.

Hanley came to Marquette after retiring from Deloitte LLP as a senior partner in 2019. He has deep experience consulting with manufacturers on digital transformation, organizational strategy and acquisitions and market development. Hanley led Deloitte’s Global Consumer and Industrial Products division and helped grow it to over $14 billion in revenues.

“I’ve been fortunate throughout my career to have wonderful mentors and colleagues that helped me grow into the leader I am today,” Hanley says. “They made honors such as this possible.”
