CEO | Bridge Innovation Capital | Class of 1992

This Illini memory is dedicated to the late, great Hanns Martin Schoenfeld.

“If I had to name one person which impacted me most in my development on campus, it would be Professor Schoenfeld, who was a wonderful teacher, warm-hearted and very hard working,” Bridge Innovation Capital Eberhard Kornotzki (MSBA '92, business administration) says from Beijing.

“He had done so much for us newcomers to help us progress with our studies. I asked him once how we could ever thank him for all his support and he just said: ‘If you ever come into the same position to be able to help others, just do that then.’

“I’ll never forget him.”
