David Hollander, J.D., clinical assistant professor at the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports Management, received the Award for Distinguished Service from the Trans Insight Corporation on March 7.
Hollander was recognized “for his consistent and outstanding dedication, energy, and commitment to the sharing of ideas and scholarship with students and academicians from Japan in the furtherance of the highest global professional standards and ideals in the areas of marketing and consumer behavior in the field of Sports Business,” according to the Award’s citation.
Three times in the past two years, Hollander has delivered a lecture to groups of visiting students and teachers from Biwako Seikei Sport College. The students and teachers,whose visits were organized by Trans Insight, a marketing consultancy that advises Japanese sports businesses, also toured New York City-area sports venues and engaged in various sports-related activities throughout the city.
“It is my honor to present Professor Hollander with the Distinguished Service Award in recognition for his consistent and outstanding dedication to promote and deepen the US-Japan educational relationship in the field of sports management,” said Trans Insight Corporation Principal Tomoya Suzuki. “His lecture has been always fantastic and one of the highest rated activities in our week-long educational tour. He speaks like a poet. His English is very simple and easy enough for Japanese collegiate students to understand, but his conversation is always thought-provoking.”
