Ms Karen Yung
Chief Collaboration Officer
A graduate of Santa Clara University in California with a BSc. in Economics, Karen got her start in education in Hanoi, Vietnam, where she earned her Montessori Teaching Diploma and opened the Rainbow International Pre-school to offer an option for her children and expats just moving into the burgeoning Hanoi economy.
In 1997, a move to Shanghai saw Karen working first with the American Chamber of Commerce as the US Consulate Liaison and then as the Executive Director for the British Chamber of Commerce. However, a lack of good international schools for their children prompted Karen and Fraser White to embark upon a partnership with Dulwich College – the beginning of the journey that has today grown into the EiM global family of schools.
Karen oversees strategic portfolio consolidation and growth, focusing on brands innovating in education for a sustainable future. In her capacity as Chief Collaboration Officer, she fosters a culture that empowers group and school community teams to set high ambitions and collaborate cross-functionally to bring the EiM vision to life.
