Wade Loo

Wade Loo (BSAC ’80), chair of the Daniels College of Business Executive Advisory Board, is helping to clear the path for diverse students to pursue their dreams in the field of accountancy. In 2012, Wade and his wife, Chisato, generously established the Wade Loo Endowed Scholarship for accounting students at Daniels. Since its inception, six students have benefited from their generosity. Seeking to increase the impact of their fund, Wade recently notified DU that he and Chisato are including the University in their estate plans. Wade is leaving a legacy by ensuring that his scholarship will help students who show academic excellence and financial need. He enjoys meeting with scholarship recipients, offering advice and hearing about their experiences. The scholarship not only impacts the lives of students who receive the award; it also benefits the accounting profession as a whole by making the field accessible to individuals with broad experiences.

“I strongly believe the support, core values and technical skills DU provided helped me achieve an amazing and fulfilling 30-year career at KPMG,” said Wade. “I hope through establishing a scholarship I can provide others with the same opportunity for success in an endeavor they are passionate about.”
