Harvard Investments mourns the loss of cherished Senior Project Manager Kim Korp 

The Harvard Investments family sadly lost a beloved member on July 5. 

Kimberly “Kim” Korp, 62, fought a fierce battle with cancer until the very end. A Senior Project Manager, Kim joined Harvard Investments in 1987, sharing her warmth and professionalism for 36 years. 

“Kim brought so much to Harvard Investments as we journeyed together. She was on the front lines as we grew, and rose in responsibilities over the years,” said President and CEO Craig Krumwiede. “Kim was loved, trusted, and respected by her team, our partners, and countless vendors. 

“While a true pro, she also had no small amount of moxie — and it was that inner toughness that made her such an invaluable member of the team. We mourn her loss and are sincerely grateful to have had Kim in our lives, both professionally and personally.” 

Kim was a much-loved mother, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, and “mimi.” A Phoenix native, she graduated from North High School and earned a degree in paralegal studies from Phoenix College. 

She is survived by her children, Andrew Korp and Isabella Korp-Borunda; grandson Ben Korp; mother Mary Jane Kessler; sisters Tanya Trainor and Teresa Rangel; brothers Steven Korp and Matthew Korp; and eight nieces and nephews. 

Kim will be missed by her family and ours. 

“Kim was an integral team member at Harvard Investments and contributed so much to its success, through good times and challenging times. We will miss not just her professionalism, deep knowledge, insights, and perspective — we will miss her warmth, humor, and kindness. Kim personified what it means to be a great colleague,” added Senior Vice President Chris Cacheris.
