HUCK Mr John Lloyd Huck

Mr John Lloyd Huck

The Centre for Management Research has been endowed through the generosity of philanthropist and industrial tycoon John Lloyd Huck - Chairman Emeritus of the world-renowned global pharmaceutical giant, Merck & Co., Inc.

Additionally, our benefactor is Chairman Emeritus of Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company - New Jersey's second largest life insurance company and Chairman Emeritus of Nova Pharmaceuticals, Inc., of Maryland, which he took from being a privately-held company to listing as a publicly-traded organization.

Our patron is also Board President Emeritus of the world-renowned Penn State University which has been described as the world's most complex multi-site higher education institution, with some 100 regional site-service locations and a multi-billion annual operating budget. Mr and Mrs Huck, between them, have endowed numerous chairs, professorships, departments and buildings, including the Rare Book Library at Penn State University (which houses the recreated study of Pennsylvania novelist John O'Hara).

In his eighties and active as ever, Mr Huck - a World War II B-29 bomber pilot - still flies his Cirrus airplane three times a week. And he continues to advise and sit on a significant number of Boards, including that of the famous Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, in addition to chairing his own personal American and British charitable foundations.
