GlobalPlatform Star Awards
The awards celebrate individuals who have made a significant contribution toward GlobalPlatform’s vision of creating a fully collaborative and open ecosystem in which all stakeholders can efficiently deliver innovative digital services, while providing greater security, privacy, simplicity and convenience to users.
These individuals are enthusiastic and dedicated to driving GlobalPlatform’s work efforts, and the objectives of the Technical Committee or Task Force that they represented. Awards are presented for: Collaboration & teamwork, Innovative thinking, Making it happen, Leadership and Going the extra mile.
In 2019, the Kekicheff Award was created to acknowledge outstanding dedication and commitment to GlobalPlatform. Unlike the Star Awards that are given on an annual basis, this award is intended to be given from time-to-time to recognize extraordinary, impactful efforts over a long and sustained period of time. Named after the first recipient of the award, current GlobalPlatform Board member and former Chairman of the Board, Marc Kekicheff, this first award commemorates Mr. Kekicheff’s 20+ years of outstanding dedication and commitment to GlobalPlatform. Not only was Mr. Kekicheff co-architect of the original GlobalPlatform Specifications, but he has also held various leadership positions within the organization since its inception and continues to be active in driving the organization’s efforts.
Star Award recipients are announced and presented during GlobalPlatform's Annual All Member Meeting, held each November.
