Gene Yoon is the chairman and CEO of Fila Korea Ltd. and has been associated with the Fila brand since the early 1980's when he served as the company's first footwear sourcing agent in Korea. In 1991, Yoon launched a subsidiary in Korea for Fila's Italian owners and quickly turned Korea into one of most successful markets for the Fila brand. Today Fila Korea operates through a network of over 850 franchise stores. In 2005, Yoon led a management buyout of the Korean subsidiary from Sports Brands International (a holding company of Cerberus Capital Management) and entered into a long-term license for the Fila brand. In 2007, Yoon fulfilled a life-long dream and acquired the worldwide operations and trademark rights of the Fila brand making him the first Korean entrepreneur to acquire a global brand. Following the acquisition, Yoon used his vast experience to develop a long-term licensing model with direct operations in the key Korean and US markets and, as a result, has revived the Fila brand and increased brand revenues around the world. In 2010, Yoon led the initial public offering of Fila Korea on the Korean Stock Exchange (KRX), one of the most successful IPO's in the history of the exchange. In May 2011, Yoon led a consortium of Korean investors in the winning bid for the acquisition of the Acushnet Company, one of the largest golf equipment companies in the world, which includes the premium and storied brands Titleist, the #1 ball in golf and a leader in high performance golf clubs, and FootJoy, the #1 shoe, glove, and performance outerwear brand
 in golf.



Prior to founding Fila Korea, Yoon was the president of LINE IND. Corporation as well as the Daewoon Trading Company. Early in his career, Yoon worked with Hwasung Company, Ltd., and JCPenny. Yoon has been the executive vice chairman of Korea International Trade Association (KITA) since 2009 and was awarded the Chevalier of the Order of the Merit of the Italian Republic in 2008 and named Honorary Citizen of Biella, Italy in 2010. He has received several awards for his outstanding business management including the Korea-Europe Top Management Award from Korean Society Contemporary of European Studies and the Professional Management Award from the Korea Academy of Business Historians, and the President's Awards on National Taxpayer's Day in 1998 and 2007. Yoon holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science & Diplomacy from Hankook University of Foreign Studies.



In addition to the Hall of Fame Class of 2012, The Legends Ball will honor several additional people and organizations who have contributed greatly to tennis by presentation of the Eugene L. Scott Award and the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Award. Given annually in memory of the late founder and publisher of Tennis Week magazine, the Scott Award is presented to an individual who embodies his commitment to communicating honestly and critically about the game, and who has had a significant impact on the tennis world. The Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Award honors an exceptional company that shares Joe Cullman's enthusiasm for tennis and has also made a significant contribution to society at large - both philanthropically and through outstanding generosity of spirit. Cullman served as president and chairman of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum from 1982-88, a tenure during which the organization was elevated to worldwide recognition. The award recipients will be announced at a later date.
