“They received over 700 examples from mayors, entrepreneurs, and citizens all over the world who are helping create jobs,” the Quill story said. “The initiative was so successful, that they launched ‘What Is Working: Small Businesses’ in April 2013.”

Last spring, the Huffington Post brought nonprofit organizations focused on providing jobs together with donors who believe in these missions. More than 200 organizations from 31 states and 110 cities applied for a space on the site. The Huffington Post, utilizing Crowdrise, an online fundraising website, raised more then $1.5 million for the charities from HuffPost’s 50 million unique visitors per month,” the story said.

Recently, according to Quill, Koh was selected to join the NYC hub of Global Shapers, a World Economic Forum community committed to making a difference in cities and states around the world. Members are from all walks of life and are under the age of 33.

Just recently, Koh was named to the Forbes list of “30 under 30” for people in the media category.

The write-up on the Forbes website noted: “As Arianna Huffington’s chief of staff, Koh helped keep a 700-person news organization with seven international editions running smoothly. Now he does the same at HuffPost Live, the ambitious interactive Internet TV venture launched in 2012.”

In addition, Koh is an avid runner, having completed 10 marathons.
