Emerson's David Farr Named CEO of the Year
Growth and technology were top of mind for Emerson in 1992 as the now Fortune 120 business headquartered in St. Louis became the first U.S. firm to set up a company of an investment nature in China. 20 years later the Walker School of Business, which is no stranger to success in the Far East, honored Emerson and its innovative leader by naming chairman and CEO David Farr the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology's 2012 CEO of the Year. Mr. Farr received the award following an address at Webster University in Chengdu, China.
While in China we checked in with our Walker School alumni now working throughout the country.
