AMCHAM Chief Oberlin's Advice for Locals
AMCHAM Chairman William C. Oberlin

AMCHAM (American Chamber of Commerce in Korea) Chairman William C. Oberlin recently advised Korea's future businesspeople that they should go to the country where headquarters of any corporations is based if they want to grow as a global business leader.

In an interview with a local daily Korea Economic Daily on May 2, 2007 he stressed that future business leaders need to be recognized by the head office of global companies if they want to become successful business leader.

Chairman Oberlin, who is now president of Boeing International Corp, Korea, is serving three consecutive terms of AMCHAM chairmanship. He is the one who exerted utmost efforts on the completion of the FTA between Seoul and Washington. From long time ago he usually stressed the need for the free trade agreement between the US and South Korea.

As one of the experts on Korean affairs, he has been living and working for 22 years in Korea now. Married to a Korean wife, he has a daughter Marry. The former US Air Force pilot came to Korea in 1985.

Before he visited Seoul his memory of Korea was all about Korean War (1950-53). He heard all the stories from his uncle who participated in the Korean War. All the photos his uncle showed him were all "black and white."

But when he came to Seoul he changed his mind. He came to be impressed by Korea's being dynamic, vibrant, and alive. He even brings his daughter up in Korean way.
