Commenting on the promotions, Jun Xu, H+K China CEO, said: “Last year, under the great leadership of Kung and Wai, our business growth and client servicing capabilities in Hong Kong have been great, contributing greatly to H+K’s strong growth in China as a whole."

"This year marks H+K’s presence in Hong Kong for 45 years, which is indeed an important milestone and a representation of the firm’s longer-term commitment to the region. Riding on the momentum, I’m confident in a further leap forward of our business in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area by large. Our continued growth will, in turn, create more career opportunities for our colleagues,” he added.
