Seattle Tech Leader Selected to Help Rebuild Post-Tsunami Japan
Kelly Ogilvie is founder, chairman, president and chief operating officer of Quemulus, a digital money platform. He’s advised the White House on science and technology affairs. And on March 8, Ogilvie will embark on a weeklong journey to Japan for the Japanese American Leadership Delegation (JALD), which selects and gathers outstanding Japanese Americans to build connections with Japanese leaders.
This is the first year JALD will visit the Fukushima Prefuncture, one of the hardest hit regions by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. During this visit, Ogilvie will be responsible for voicing the concerns of Fukushima residents at a symposium sponsored by the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership, then sharing them with the world.
Ogilvie says he is looking forward to reconnecting to his Japanese roots, and connecting with Japanese leaders to strengthen U.S.-Japan economic relations.
