Dragonair CEO to shake up the unshakable; Larry Kwok to lead police watchdog for another two years.


Dragonair CEO to shake up the unshakable LegCo transport seat

Algernon Yau Ying-wah (丘應樺) took a leave as Cathay Dragon’s chief executive, a role that he assumed since 2014, reportedly to challenge the Liberal Party’s dominance in the LegCo transport functional constituency seat.

James Tong Wai-bong (唐偉邦), the airline’s corporate affairs director who is in charge of public relations, was named acting chief executive to fill up the vacancy and Arnold Cheng Ka-kui (鄭家駒), general manager of sales for Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong, will become the new PR head.

Yau will likely take on Liberal Party’s Frankie Yick (易志明), the incumbent lawmaker for the transport sector and a director of Wharf. The Liberal Party has kept the seat in its pocket ever since the functional constituency was created in 1995.

 

Larry Kwok re-appointed to lead police watchdog

Larry Kwok Lam-kwong (郭琳廣) was re-appointed as chairman of the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) alongside four appointments and reappointments for a term of two years with effect from June 1, 2016.

The two new members are Clement Chan Kam-wing (陳錦榮), managing director of BDO Limited and former president of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and Wilson Kwong Wing-tsuen (鄺永銓), chief executive of Jardine Engineering Corporation.
