Bruce Rosenthal Ph.D., dean of the Robert W. Plaster College of Business at Thomas More University, has been elected to the board of the Japan America Society of Greater Cincinnati.
Founded in 1998, the society aims to foster business, cultural, and social connections between the citizens, companies, and governments of Japan and the Greater Cincinnati region.
“I have been in love with the art, culture, society, and history of Japan since my college days and welcome the opportunity to work with the JASGC to share that love and insights gained in the 12 years I lived in Japan, with the greater Cincinnati community,” Rosenthal said in a press release. “I see my role as strengthening the effort by the JASGC to foster business, social, and cultural connections between Japan and the U.S., as well as connecting Thomas More University to the magnificent cultural wellspring that is Japan.”
The board is comprised of a mix of Japanese and American members, including several Japanese Americans with roots in both countries.
“We are delighted to have Bruce Rosenthal join us, given his vast experience with and deep personal interest in Japanese culture,” said Anne Golden, executive director of the society.
