William J. Janetschek '84CBA received the Alumni Outstanding
Achievement Award of St. John’s University at the 28th Annual
Alumni Convocation on Friday, May 29, 2009.
Even before William J. Janetschek received his B.S. in
Accounting cum laude from the College of Business
Administration in 1984, it was apparent to everyone who knew him
that he was destined for success.
Setting his professional sights on the fast paced world of
business, he began his career as a Staff Accountant in the Tax
Department at Deloitte and Touche LLP immediately after
graduation. After a 13 year career at Deloitte and Touche,
during which he was promoted to Tax Partner and received his
Master’s Degree from Pace University, Mr. Janetschek moved on to
Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Company, where he currently serves as
CFO and Partner.
Mr. Janetschek has demonstrated loyalty to his University in
numerous ways, including service as a member of the President’s
Dinner Committee and the endowing of an academic scholarship to
assist deserving students.
The Alumni Outstanding Achievement Award is an honor reserved
for alumni who have either distinguished themselves in their
personal careers and professions or have made a significant
contribution to the life of the University.
