Atlanta, GA – (September 14th, 2020) Dr. Man Ki Kim, Professor at KAIST College of Business (www.business.kaist.edu) and Global Public Procurement Management Program, was awarded Government Contractors Association 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award at our Board of Directors Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia.
“It is with great privilege for me to bestow to Dr. Man Ki Kim GCA's LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD and the honorary designation of CERTIFIED CAPTURE MANAGER for his commitment to the small business community and contribution in public procurement service,” said Abraham Xiong, CEO of Government Contractors Association. “GCA extends our gratitude to Dr. Kim for his ongoing work to empower entrepreneurs and corporations around the world, especially the underserved small business community in the USA.”
“I am humbled and honored to be recognized by GCA and its Board of Directors with this Lifetime Achievement Award,” said Dr. Kim. “I’m fortunate to live my life’s mission of serving my community and the international community in fostering business and public procurement opportunities. I am fully committed to develop KAIST’s Global Public Procurement Management Program to support SMBs to enter global procurement market such as US Fed, US, EU and MDBs.”
The Lifetime Achievement Award was conferred in recognition of Dr. Kim’s leadership and passion to educate the businesses of South Korea and the USA on international trade and the public procurement market.
Through his role as a Professor with KAIST University and as a Senior Advisor of Global Public Procurement at Yulchon, Dr. Kim is a bridge for international business cooperation through the multiple trade missions with US small companies entering the South Korean market and vice versa.
Prior to moving back to his native country of South Korea, Dr. Kim and his wife started a small business in Reston, Virginia as a federal government contractor. Their success of winning over $35 million in government contracts led to his passion to encourage and educate others about the opportunities in the public procurement marketplace.
“I’m proud to see our small business members work with Dr. Kim as he has helped open many doors for US based companies in finding manufacturers and suppliers in the international market,” stated Richard Brooks, CFO of GCA.
