Euisun Chung, CEO of the Hyundai Motor Group, has been appointed "Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" (CBE). He is being honored for his contribution to art, culture and environmentally friendly electric mobility.
Since King Charles III's accession to the throne, Chung is the first Korean to be awarded this title. The British Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, Colin Crooks, presented Chung with the Order of Merit on behalf of King Charles III at a ceremony at the British Embassy in Seoul. Group founder Ju-yung Chung had received the honor in 1977.
The Hyundai Group has been exporting cars to the UK since 1982 and today supports the world-famous Tate Modern art gallery in London, among other things. It is also the title sponsor of the prestigious Genesis Scottish Open golf tournament. (aum)
