Founder and Chairman
The Dowager Viscountess Rothermere
Lady Rothermere (Yi Jung Shun) is a Korean citizen who was born and educated in Japan. She later lived in New York, Paris and London. She retains her Korean passport and visits Korea as often as possible where her parents and her late husband, the Third Viscount Rothermere, are laid to rest.
Lady Rothermere is passionate about her charity work and has worked extensively over the years with a wide range of causes and is a patron of the arts.
In 2009 Lady Rothermere was thrilled and humbled to have been awarded the Moran-Jang, the second highest honour given to Korean civilians by the Republic of Korea. It was given to Lady Rothermere in recognition of her work in promoting Korea’s image to the rest of the world, and for her outstanding charitable work.
In 2010 she received the CICI Stepping Stone Bridge Award for helping Korean musicians make inroads into foreign countries and for her work with charity and volunteer programs.
