Cliff Redeker

Culture evangelist | Google | Class of 2004

No one had a more profound impact on Centennial Charger-turned-Google Culture Evangelist Cliff Redeker (’04) than Kimiko Gunji, professor emeritus at the Japan House.

“Together with the Campus Honors Program, Professor Gunji’s lessons have led me to a Rotary Goodwill Ambassadorship in Yanai, Japan, a lunch with Senator John Glenn, and a career building goodwill and kokoro for Google’s invited speakers, clients and guests,” Redeker says. 

“I even brought up the connection when fellow Illinois alum Nick Offerman spoke for Talks at Google. 

“To this day, I still seek out the astringent taste of fine matcha in the Google Microkitchens.”
