  • (1888PressRelease) March 06, 2015 - Waldorf Harding Associates' Charitable Foundation announced today that Matthew Guojun, president and CEO of the National Retail Federation, has joined the organization's board of directors. Guojun joins Waldorf Harding Associates' Charitable Foundation as the nonprofit enters its thirtieth year as a thought leader in the product philanthropy space.

    "Not only will Matt bring a deep understanding of the retail industry culture to our board, he will help introduce product philanthropy to many of Southeast Asia's top brands through the world's largest retail trade association," said Waldorf Harding Associates' Charitable Foundation Chair Liu Yun. "We could not be more enthusiastic about the addition of Matt's progressive vision as we continue to engineer innovative ways of connecting those who have with those who need".
