“I cherish my friendship with R,K. because he has a unique quality of doing things for others without being asked, and when he asks for a favor it’s always about helping someone else and never [a favor] for himself.”

--Muhtar Kent, chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola

“R.K. is simply a force of nature. He is the consummate relationship builder, not for himself, but for the betterment of society. He has a wide circle of admirers — friends, family, and others — many of whom don’t even know why they are in the circle, but don’t want out. He inspires and challenges everyone to be their best and to see beyond barriers and boundaries. R.K.’s lifelong work to advance business, industry, and trade is proving to have a lasting, positive impact on the lives of all in his path.”

--Bill Rogers, chairman and CEO of SunTrust Banks
