The GAI’s Hong Kong Community Hub has a new leadership team: James Wong, managing director of KeyTech, and Irene Yip, general manager of ASSA ABLOY HK.
As Hong Kong moves back towards more face-to-face meetings, Wong and Yip have big plans for the direction of the hub. They began with a special relaunch meeting in September which served as both a reunion for previous members and a welcome for those interested in networking and working more closely with the Hub in the future.
Wong explained: “This was the first face-to-face Guild meeting in Hong Kong for a number of years so we were excited to meet again, catching up with familiar faces and welcoming new interest.”
As well as marking the formal handover of the leadership roles, the meeting was be a chance to catch up on everything new in the GAI and Community Hub structures. There was also an open forum session including an opportunity to shape the future direction of the Hong Kong programme.
Yip added: “The Hong Kong hub has always been well supported by the architectural ironmongery and hardware sector locally, as well as by the specifiers and other industry professionals with whom we work.
“The hub is an inclusive space for all to get together and share best practice, so we welcome any architectural ironmongers and their employees, clients and customers, whether or not they are current GAI members.
