Two Beloit College alumni, an honorary degree recipient, and a Parents Fund Committee co-chair will join the ranks of the college’s board of trustees when it convenes for its fall meeting in October. Peter Chatilovicz’69, L. Jo Froman’69, Diane Hendricks, and Charles P. McQuaid were recently elected to the board. Each will serve a three-year term expiring in 2014.

Chatilovicz, who is a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of Seyfarth Shaw LLP, earned a bachelor’s degree in government from Beloit College, where he was a member of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Following graduation, he received a J.D. degree magna cum laude from the University of Miami and went onto become an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law School. In 2006, he was named “lawyer of the year” in his field of labor and employment by the Washington Business Journal.

Froman, who formerly served as the associate director of admissions at Beloit College, earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy at Beloit where she was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board. She later received a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard, and served on Beloit’s board of trustees as an alumni trustee from 1988-1990 and as a regular trustee from 1994-1997. Froman also was a member of Beloit’s Sesquicentennial Campaign Strategy Committee.

Hendricks, who received an honorary degree from Beloit College in 2007, is the chairwoman of ABC Supply Co., Inc., the nation’s largest roofing, window, and siding wholesale distributor. She worked beside her husband, Ken, an honorary degree recipient and former member of the board of trustees, until his death in 2007. Hendricks is also chairwoman of Hendricks Holding Company and Hendricks Development Group, and she serves as co-chair of Rock County 5.0, a five-year public and private economic development initiative. Beloit College’s Hendricks Center for the Arts was a gift to the college from the Hendricks.

McQuaid, the president and chief investment officer at Columbia Wanger Asset Management in Chicago, earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Massachusetts  Amherst and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. The chartered financial analyst and his wife have been co-chairs of the Beloit College Parents Fund Committee since 2009-2010, and they have been supporters of the Renewing the Historic Core project, an initiative to restore Beloit’s historically important campus buildings. Their son graduated from Beloit College last May.
