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.”
