Founder/President & Professor of Management and Leadership

Prof. Dr. Chea Chamroeun is the Founder and President of The Chamroeun University of Poly-Technology (CUP), a university providing combined knowledge of professional skills and moral values to its students concerning the cultural field, society, economy and science for the development of human resources in Cambodian society. He received the title of “Oknha” from King Norodom Sihamoni, the King of the Kingdom of Cambodia by Royal Decree, for elite citizenship and contributing greatly to the welfare of the less fortunate. Here is Oknha Chamroeun's bio, in his words:
I would like to help develop human resources to build up Cambodian people’scapacities through the establishment of the Chamroeun University of Poly-Technology, the Khmer Scientific Media Center and the Cambodian Institute forDevelopment and Human Rights in Cambodia. I am a Professor of Management and Leadership. Let me give all of you the turning point of my life history! Cambodia has endured destructive wars and the Pol Pot Genocide Regime, which made me an orphan, and forced my migration to the Site II Refugee Camp along the Cambodian-Thai Border during 1980s. It was that year (1993) that I returned to Cambodia. In the refugee camp, I was studying and also teaching children and youths; this means “a person who had higher knowledge taught the person with a little knowledge and the person with a little knowledge taught the person with no knowledge”. To get through this bitter time, I held true to my own vision that “Smiling in the end is better than laughing at first”, meaning you have to experience the difficulty to achieve a bright future. The bright future is that I have to learn from myself, school, family, organization and society to improve myself. Now it has made me even more aware that the CMO Council provides me with more knowledge of the world. The fulfillment of my vision of self-improvement would be to spread knowledge to develop various entities and society.

Assistant Professor of Marketing
Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa
David Large is Assistant Professor of Marketing at the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa. His professional career began with a B.Eng. and M.Eng. in Civil Engineering from Carleton University, supplemented by several years of experience in the telecom, construction and petroleum industries as a Project Engineer and Product Engineer. After experiencing an epiphany in a first-year Marketing course in his MBA at the Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario, David went on to complete his PhD in Marketing at Ivey, studying under Don Barclay and Roger More, among others. Upon completion in 1991 he undertook his current position at the Telfer School. At the Telfer School of Business, David teaches, conducts research and consults in the fields of Marketing Strategy and Technology Marketing and Commercialization. His teaching, primarily in the domain of Marketing Strategy, spans all programs including undergraduate, MBA, Executive MBA and Executive Development. His research, primarily in the domain of technology marketing and commercialization, has been published in journals such as Venture Capital, Journal of Product Innovation Management, and the Journal of Technology Transfer, as well as in refereed conference proceedings such as R&D Management, IEEE IEMC, PICMET and IABPAD. His consulting practice, primarily in the domain of technology marketing strategy, has focused primarily on the larger companies in the telecom and software sectors such as Nortel, Alcatel, Newbridge, Mitel, and Corel. In the course of his consulting activities within the large telecom companies, David witnessed several significant discrepancies between companies concerning their definition (and, apparently, their perception) of the role of the Chief Marketing Officer. For example, the range of go-to-market decision-making authority varied from "keeper of the brand" in one company to a complete range of product/market/technology/ally portfolio decisions in another. After witnessing the two companies' CMO role discrepancies, and in consideration of the companies’ recent opposite performances, David’s research program has just taken a right-angle turn towards a better understanding of the role of the CMO, and the relationship of the CMO’s role to corporate performance.
