Nominated by her alma mater Bradley University, congratulations to our very own Michele Sullivan, Caterpillar Foundation President, for being named among this distinguished list of leaders in 2018.

The Caterpillar Foundation's mission is to alleviate extreme poverty. Under Sullivan's leadership, the Foundation focuses on investments that address the root causes of poverty to create sustainable change, and ultimately lift people from the spiral of poverty and place them on the path to prosperity. Sullivan believes in a collaborative approach to partnerships, which led to the launch of the Caterpillar Foundation's Together.Stronger.™ platform. Combining the strengths and diverse thinking of businesses, nonprofits, governments and citizens, the Caterpillar Foundation is helping empower people to develop resilient communities.
