Retailer glitters at RBS awards awards

SUNGJOO Kim, the chief executive and chair of the luxury fashion brand MCM has been given the most prestigious award at the RBS sponsored Asian women of achievement awards celebrating the contribution of Asian women across British business. The judges described Sungjoo Kim (right), known as Ghengis Kim by some of her employees because of her hard work, as “a wonderful example of someone who has overcome widespread prejudice and family opposition to become one of her country’s most highly respected entrepreneurs, while still retaining a strong sense of social responsibility.” MCM’s flagship store is located on Sloane Street. Business woman of the year went to Vicky Shu, a lead project engineer with Shell UK.
