“Under Alan Wilson’s leadership, McCormick and Company has continued to grow its reputation and success as both a corporate anchor in Baltimore and a business that is respected internationally for product quality, innovation and dedication to its customers and the community,” Karyl B. Leggio, dean of the Baltimore university’s Sellinger School, said in a statement. “His commitment to excellence is something we value deeply at Loyola, and we as an institution, along with our students, are extraordinarily fortunate to remain strongly tied to a company of McCormick’s prestige.”
Wilson, who joined McCormick in 1993, has served in his current role since 2008, according to information from the university. Prior to joining McCormick, he worked at Procter & Gamble.

He also serves on the Business Roundtable for Education and the board of visitors of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
He will be honored at a dinner Nov. 21 at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore.
