Denis Yip, a resident of Hong Kong and father of two Webb students, Brandon ’18 and Eunice’ 19, was elected to The Webb Schools Board of Trustees in March.
Denis is President of EMC Greater China (recently purchased by Dell) and spent most of his time at work in China. Prior to EMC, Denis held various leadership positions with IBM from 1993 – 2006.
Married to Iris Yip, Denis was educated at Diocesan Boys’ School, a private boys’ secondary school in Hong Kong prior to attending and graduating from Arcadia High School. From there, Denis attended UC Berkeley earning a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science followed by a M.B.A. from Golden Gate University.
Over the past two years, Denis has led two technology fundraising initiatives as a leadership donor and volunteer—which together have raised nearly $1 million in total. In addition, he is the host of our alumni/parent reception in Hong Kong this April.
“It is my great honor to serve on the Board of Trustees and to represent Webb in Greater China. I look forward to doing all I can to contribute to Webb’s growing excellence and reputation in the United States and around the world,” Denis said.
Taylor Stockdale added, “Denis has been committed to Webb from day one. He’s worked tirelessly to help Webb advance its Technology Initiative in Asia and beyond. I’m thrilled he’ll continue this work and still more as a new member of the board.”
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively. In October 2017, she was invited to give a Tedx Talk in Providence, Rhode Island, where she spoke on the legacy of her grandparents, how their work inspired her and the incredible work she is doing with our youth through The Sparkle Program.
We are pleased and excited to announce the appointment of Jennifer Liu as Webb’s Director of Parent Relations and Special Events effective November 1. In this position, Liu will oversee our parent relations program, which serves more than 750 current parents worldwide and an active volunteer network through our Affiliates parent organization.
An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
For Webb sports fans who can’t attend a game, or if you’d like to follow along with the live stats and scores from our athletic contests, most of our home games will be covered live with video and play-by-play at The NFHS Network.
