GM engineer receives prestigious 2007 National Asian Pacific American Corporate Achievement Award


LAS VEGAS – General Motors engineer Darwin Wang received the National Asian Pacific American Corporate Achievement Awards from the Organization of Chinese Americans.

“This is truly an honor,” said Wang. “I’m incredibly proud to work for GM and this award validates what we’ve been doing. It recognizes that our company is committed to diversity in the workplace and is dedicated to being a customer-driven company at the forefront of the global market. It’s great to know that I play a part in that.”

Since he joined GM in 1988, Wang has demonstrated a dedication and passion toward improving product quality and customer satisfaction. His efforts and ingenuity have earned him numerous recognitions and special achievement awards from GM. Wang was also instrumental in the creation of the GM Chinese Affinity Group, and served as the first president in 2001.

Outside of work, Wang is an active member in the Chinese community of Greater Detroit. He helped pioneer the creation of the Chinese Association of Greater Detroit in late 1992 and was elected to its Board of Directors from 1994 through 1996. Wang then served on the School Board for local area Chinese schools from 1996 through 1998. In addition to his time and efforts, Wang also volunteers his voice – as a lyric tenor – to community stages and events.

The annual National Asian Pacific American Corporate Achievement Award program is the only national one of its kind. The award recognizes winners each year for their corporate achievement and service to Asian Pacific American communities. Winners are first nominated by their respective companies and then selected by a panel of judges. The twelve honorees of 2007 were presented their awards at a banquet at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.
