At the annual Haas Gala, we present one or more alumni who have gone beyond themselves in exceptional ways for our school with our highest volunteer honor, the Raymond E. Miles Alumni Service Award.
TONY CHAN, BS 74, ENSURES STRENGTH OF BERKELEY AND HAAS
Anthony “Tony” Chan, BS 74, the owner and managing member of Worldco Holding, LLC, received the Raymond E. Miles Alumni Service Award in honor of his longtime volunteer efforts and leadership at Berkeley and Haas. Chan served for 12 years on the UC Berkeley Foundation Board of Trustees, and he has been a member of the Haas School Board for several years. Among many accomplishments, he recently led the Haas Board’s campaign to support the Dean Lyons Faculty Research Fund, resulting in 100% participation.
Interacting with educators and Berkeley supporters is extremely inspiring and rewarding. Seeing the continuing excellence of Berkeley and Haas—despite substantial shrinking of state support—makes me proud of campus leaders and educators.
— Tony Chan, BS 74
REMEMBERING RAYMOND E. MILES, FORMER DEAN AND PROFESSOR EMERITUS
Berkeley Haas lost a beloved former dean and champion of the Haas community for whom our top volunteer award is named. Raymond Miles passed away on May 13, 2019, in Albany, California. He was 86.
As dean of Haas between 1983 and 1990, Miles is credited with growing the school’s thriving alumni network, securing a campus that invites community, and hiring prestigious faculty members, including two Nobel Laureates.
In honor of Miles’ significant impact, the Cal Business Alumni Association created the Raymond E. Miles Alumni Service Award in 1990.
