Chong Kim, dean of the Lewis College of Business, received the
2010 Distinguished Global Leadership Award last week during the
Pan Pacific Business Association’s 27th annual conference.
The conference took place in Bali, Indonesia, May 30-June 2, and Kim received the award on Tuesday, June 1.
“It is my very humble honor to receive the award,” Kim said. “It is the highest award given by the Pan Pacific Conference. Among the so many distinguished scholars in the association, I was very happy to be chosen as this year’s recipient. As a member of the Marshall family, I want to share this honor together.”
Marshall President Stephen J. Kopp was pleased to learn of Kim’s award.
“On behalf of the entire Marshall University Community, I congratulate Dean Chong Kim on this distinguished award,” Kopp said. “The Pan Pacific Business Association 2010 Distinguished Global Leadership Award brings great honor to Dr. Kim, the Lewis College of Business and Marshall University.”
D. Clay Whybark is academic advisor with the Institute for Defense and Business, founding director of the Global Manufacturing Research Group and a fellow of the Pan Pacific Business Association. He presented the award to Kim.
Kim received the award, according to Whybark, “for his outstanding global contribution.” Kim also is one of only a handful of Pan Pacific Business Association members who have attended every annual conference since the first one in Hawaii.
