Hong Kong-headquartered information and communications technology provider HKBN has appointed three leaders to key positions – Derek Yue as chief financial officer, Catherine Cheng as chief talent officer and Kenneth She as chief transformation officer.

These appointments, the company states, underscore its “commitment to building a strong financial foundation, attracting the right talent and fostering a forward-looking mindset for its transformation”.

Derek Yue, a HKBN co-owner, brings over three decades of diverse industry experiences spanning technology, fast-moving consumer goods, healthcare and logistics. As the CFO, he will provide leadership to the finance team, overseeing all aspects of finance and accounting functions within the group. His primary responsibilities include driving the achievement of the company’s business goals, enhancing operational efficiency and excellence, and providing valuable expertise in strategic planning and implementation to facilitate the company’s continuous profitable growth and expansion endeavours.

Catherine Cheng, a future HKBN co-owner, has specialized expertise in both the human resources and information technology industries. She brings over 25 years of experience in leadership positions. With a proven track record in delivering business results and leading change, Cheng’s extensive experience in multinational technology corporations and large locally-listed system integrators enables her to leverage best practices and tailor models that align with the company’s business development.

Kenneth She, a seasoned leader with a wealth of experience in the technology and innovation sector, will spearhead innovation efforts and lead the organization’s transformation strategy. Leveraging his expertise, he will identify and implement disruptive business models and strategic initiatives to propel the company’s evolution as an industry leader.

“Since our initial public offering in 2015, HKBN has experienced remarkable revenue growth, soaring from HK$2.3 billion (US$293.89 million) to HK$11.6 billion in FY2022,” says NiQ Lai, company’s co-owner and group CEO. “With Yue, Cheng and She’s experience in driving change and their commitment to our unique co-ownership culture, they will play a crucial role in propelling us to new heights of growth.”
