Our Drucker Lab Research Director, Prof. Joseph Maciariello peacefully passed away on July 1st 2020 in Claremont, California, USA, with his family at his side. In memory of Prof. Maciariello, we hosted the online memorial service of Prof. Maciariello on July 20th (Monday) with the support of Dr. Stephen Lee, the Pastor of Saddleback Church Hong Kong. It was attended by the beloved family of Prof. Maciariello, Mrs. Judy Maciariello and their son Patrick Maciariello, fellow colleagues, students and members of DAHK, where we pay our last respects to Prof. Maciariello together.

Prof. Maciariello devoted himself to the study of the huge body of knowledge on Drucker, and made the teaching of Management as a Liberal Art a practical project, whilst in collaboration with the Peter F. Drucker Academy Hong Kong, Prof. Maciariello personally led the “Train the Trainer”(TTT) courses in the past few years, which is very unforgettable.

With his great efforts, today our MLA Leadership Program has been updated to an advanced level. His contribution in helping us to sustain our mission going forward is invaluable. We highly appreciate and thank him for his great contribution to Peter F. Drucker Academy and the global MLA community at large. His legacy in promoting MLA will be carrying on, for the hope of achieving a functioning society.
