Distinguished Contribution Award
Scholarly Contribution Award
Prof. Redding is Director, The Euro-Asia and Comparative
Research Centre, INSEAD, a position he assumed after a long and distinguished
career as Professor of Management Studies at Hong Kong University. Gordon is
one of the pioneers of Chinese management research. He has published many books
and articles on the subject. Perhaps his single most influential and cited work
is The Spirit of Chinese Capitalism (1990). Virtually all scholars who seek to
gain a better understanding of Chinese management practices have read this
Mike is the Provost’s Distinguished Professor of Global
Strategy at the University of Texas at Dallas. Mike Peng graduated from the
University of Washington in 1996. He has published three books, 39 journal
articles, and 24 non-refereed publications. His publications on strategies
employed by domestic and international companies competing in Greater China have
appeared in AMJ, AMR, JIBS, JM, JMS, OS, and SMJ. Mike’s principal contribution
to the literature lay in his advocating an institution-based view of strategy as
one of the three legs in a "strategy tripod" – the other two legs are the more
established industry- and resource-based views. Mike is also the editor of Asia
Pacific Journal of Management.
Captain Jia-Fu Wei is Executive President and CEO of China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO). Captain Wei has been serving COSCO for over 38 years through which he grew up from a deck employee to a captain and to a top leader of the company. He led two key transformations of COSCO: from a global shipping carrier to a global logistics provider integrating rail, river, and road transport, terminal operations, and documentation; and from a China-based shipper to a multinational company optimizing operations globally, utilizing local staff, decentralizing decisions, and relying on the COSCO culture to unite the company worldwide. The ultimate aim of these initiatives is a much more fundamental transformation of COSCO from a state-owned enterprise to a state-controlled enterprise that is subject to the discipline of global capital markets.
Captain Wei is not only a successful entrepreneur but
also has a strong sense of social responsibility. Under his leadership COSCO has
devoted many resources with the aim at being a good corporate citizen. In 2004,
COSCO signed in the Global Compact Movement and promised to be a green service
provider. In recent years, COSOC has contributed more than a hundred million
Yuan (RMB) in environment protection and improvement of product quality. In
addition, COSCO has been paying a lot of attention to the welfare and safety and
health of its own employees and its customers.
