​Mark Sexton, College of Architecture Alumnus, Elected to Illinois Tech Board of Trustees

Mark Sexton (B.ARCH ’80), a College of Architecture alumnus and co-chair of the college’s Board of Advisors, has been elected to the Illinois Institute of Technology Board of Trustees for a three-year term.

Sexton co-founded Krueck+Sexton, an award-winning Chicago architecture firm that has had a hand in notable local works such as the Spertus Institute and Crown Fountain in Millennium Park. In 2005 Sexton led the renovation of S. R. Crown Hall, restoring the key details of the National Historic Landmark while making changes in order to improve the building’s energy performance.

“Illinois Institute of Technology was foundational to my own professional career—as well as the careers of so many of my Krueck+Sexton colleagues,” says Sexton. “I’m excited to have this opportunity to help further strengthen the university as it continues to inspire and equip students for success.”

As a trustee, Sexton joins a group of experts, community leaders, and business people in guiding the future of Chicago’s only tech-focused university.

“We’re delighted to welcome Mark to the Board of Trustees,” says Alan W. Cramb, president of Illinois Institute of Technology. “His expertise in architecture, design, and sustainability adds a unique perspective that will be valuable for the university’s future.”
