Harvey Goldstein leads Harvest International Indonesia and possesses more than 45 years’ experience working in the areas of private sector growth and development in Southeast Asia. Outside his career at the Indonesia-based company, Harvey Goldstein serves as chapter chairman of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO).
YPO offers business leaders the opportunity to join a community of fellow professionals who achieved success before age 45 and continue to foster a commitment to learning, trust, and confidentiality. In order to become an YPO member, applicants must meet qualifications on both a personal and professional level. Moreover, applicants must hold the responsibility of overseeing full operations for a qualifying corporation or division.
Qualified corporations satisfy at least one criterion from two different requirement categories: A Requirements and B Requirements. A Requirements involve employee numbers and compensation totals, while B Requirements include mandates regarding dollar volumes and enterprise values. YPO grants exceptions in some cases, however, such as instances of currency devaluation or other occurrences.
The most basic criteria for members is focused on the applicant’s age and professional title within their business. Applicants must apply before reaching their 45th birthday and possess the equivalent of a high-ranking title at their place of employment. Qualified tiles include president, CEO, managing director, publisher, or similar positions.
To apply, applicants must submit a preliminary membership application for review by general YPO personnel. After conducting evaluation, these individuals pass on applications which meet membership criteria to the appropriate chapter for final consideration.
