Foundation Seeks Private Sector Perspectives Through Advisory Council

Understanding that private sector perspectives can be critical to good project design, The Asia Foundation has established an Advisory Council of highly regarded private sector individuals with expertise and strategic interests in Asia. The Council’s primary role is to help increase the visibility and relevance of the Foundation’s work, and to help better assess the impact of Foundation programming on the economic growth and development of Asian nations. Founding members are: Bill S. Kim, Founder and President, Kizan International, Inc.; S. Timothy Kochis, Founder and CEO, Aspiriant; Dr. T. Dixon Long, Dean Emeritus, Case Western Reserve University; Leo K.W. Lum, Founder and Chairman, Churchill Capital Asia Limited of Singapore; Janet McKinley, Chair, Oxfam America Board of Directors; and Masaaki Tanaka, President and CEO, UnionBanCal Corporation and Union Bank of California. Asia Foundation Trustees Thomas Rohlen and Paul Slawson serve as trustee-members of the Advisory Council. For more information, contact the Resource Development staff at: give@asiafound.org.
