HKBN announced on Monday the appointment of Chun Yu Chan as chief talent & purpose officer, overseeing strategy and development of the group’s talent culture, talent engagement, core purpose and corporate social investment.

As a home-grown Hong Kong talent, CY’s appointment, which follows a journey of growth across many different roles and responsibilities over his 9 years with HKBN, will further drive the evolution of HKBN’s talent culture and leverage its talent advantage to achieve strong business growth in a purposeful way.

Since first joining HKBN in 2011 as a learning & development manager, CY has grown to lead the group’s talent acquisition, talent engagement & development, and administration efforts. In 2017, he was given further responsibilities to lead the group’s corporate social investment.

Commenting on his new role, HKBN co-owner and chief talent & purpose officer CY Chan said, “My entry into the group’s management committee sends a clear message that our unique talent culture and core purpose are pivotal to our growth. Through a holistic range of talent-first and purpose-driven initiatives, we aspire to make HKBN the best company to work for in Asia.
