Charles and I served for several years together on the Harvard Business School Global Alumni Board. During this time, we had opportunities to work together on projects, develop advice for the Dean, Faculty and Staff of the school and to enjoy each other’s company in social gatherings in connection with our Board gatherings. Charles was always a thoughtful and inspriring contributor to our work. His experience and perspective from many years of working with people around the globe helped him to contribute perspective and wisdom for us all. It has been a real delight to come to know him and be able to call him friend and colleague.
