Yoon eyed as head of training institute


Yoon Eun-key

President Lee Myung-bak has nominated Yoon Eun-key, incumbent president of Seoul School of Integrated Sciences & Technology, as the president of the Central Officials Training Institute. Yoon’s predecessor, Chung Jang-sik, resigned in order to run for governor of North Gyeongsang in the provincial elections slated for June 2.

Born in Dangjin, South Chungcheong, Yoon served the Korea Sustainability Business Academy and the Korea Business Case-Study Academy as vice president and president, respectively. As a high-profile business consultant, he made appearances on MBC’s variety show “Sunday, Sunday Night,” as well as radio programs.

His nomination marks the first time that a nongovernment official could be appointed president of the institute since its establishment in 1961. The post is equivalent to the vice-minister level in the governmental organization chart. Yoon was chosen due to “his career background as a CEO of a business consulting firm and his broad knowledge about business management and related education,” the Blue House said.
