Professor Christiane Keck, Professor Emerita of German and former Head of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures [as of January 1, 2012, the School of Languages and Cultures] at Purdue University, provided the driving force for the creation of Global Business Languages in the mid-1990s. From its beginning in 1996 she served as Editor of the journal, and although she retired from the university in 2002, she continued her editorship until 2010. Last year when she announced she would be leaving the journal, it was too late for us in our production schedule to offer more than brief thanks for her long service and devotion to business German, business languages in general, and the journal. In this Tribute, several of her colleagues share their thoughts upon her departure from the journal.
