At the presentation ceremony, which took place in June during a meeting in Mexico City of 108 Honorary Consuls from around the world, Kluger was presented with a special certificate of service by Jose Antonio Meade Kuribreña, Mexico's Secretario de Relaciones Exteriores (Secretary of Foreign Affairs), and asked to continue in his capacity as Honorary Consul.

Along with his leadership position with the Museum and his role as Honorary Consul to the State of Hawaii for the Republic of Mexico, Kluger is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Early Bird Alert, Inc., a privately-held San Rafael, CA-company that distributes patient-centric home healthcare communications systems.

Kluger received his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of San Francisco and a Bachelor of Science in International Relations from the University of California at Davis. He did his graduate study programs at the University of London and the S. E. Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
