Ellis Yan 被克里夫蘭大學授予榮譽博士學位

〔本報訊〕克城著名華人企業家,美國節能燈産品生産和銷售巨頭TCP公司的老闆Ellis Yan 先生,於五月十六日,在Bert L. and Iris S. Wolstein Center被克里夫蘭大學授予2009年榮譽博士學位(Honorary Doctor of Business Administration)以下英文介紹由克里夫蘭孔子大學校長 Dr. Lih-Ching Chen Wang,提供的。
     Ellis Yan’s journey to becoming a successful innovator and founder, President and CEO of the world’s leading energy-efficient lighting manufacturer has been filled with obstacles which fueled his entrepreneurial spirit.
     A survivor of China’s Cultural Revolution, Mr. Yan arrived in the Unites States in his early twenties to study at Cleveland State, where he earned a degree in Accounting in 1982. In 1986, he entered the halogen lighting products business and founded Technical Consumer Products (TCP) in Aurora, Ohio
     As the business grew, he turned his focus to energy-efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), revolutionizing the residential lighting industry. Today, TCP drives lighting innovation for commercial, industrial and residential application and controls 70 percent of the CFL market in the United States. Mr. Yan continues to have a keen commitment to the environment and ensuring that TCP is a “green” operation. Education is also a passion as well as part of the company’s business philosophy; he has been instrumental in establishing consumer and school education programs to share the environmental benefits of CFLs. He has received numerous awards for his business leadership, was named to the Forbes 2008 list of Notable Chinese Americans, and received a 2008 Distinguished Alumni Award from Cleveland State (page 10, Cleveland State University 2009 Spring Commencement program booklet).
  在寫這篇文章時,本報曾希望Ellis Yan 能提供一張這次克里夫蘭大學授予他名譽博士時他頭帶博士帽的照片,但他説沒有,並説這並不重要。Ellis Yan早 年畢業于克里夫蘭大學,現在已經是一位十分成功的著名企業家,在美國和中國公司里,總共擁有幾萬員工,他的TCP公司也是全世界同行業里的皎皎者。由於Ellis Yan在克里夫蘭的名氣和對本地的杰出貢獻,克城的飛機場里還挂有他的一副巨大照片。對此他十分謙虛的説,那是因爲克里夫蘭的人太少了,所以才選擇了他。
   他對工作精益求精,勇于開拓進取,在日前百年不遇的經濟危機的艱難時刻,他的企業也受到經濟不景氣的影響,面臨重重困難,但他深入基層,更加關懷他的員工,並希望能和全體員工一起戰勝困難共渡難關。Ellis Yan説,公司的員工們對他非常好,在他的辦公室里有一大瓶補品,這是因爲他曾經對員工説過最近背痛,員工們就送來補藥,希望他們的老闆早日身體康復。這就是一個擁有上萬員工的大企業家,他説,全體員工上下齊心協力是企業走向成功的基礎,而人最重要的就是感恩心。
