Alan Lo, Director of North of England Club’s Hong Kong office, retired on November 30th after 23 years’ service.
He began his career with North in 1995 as Manager of the newly-opened Hong Kong Office and became General Manager, Asia Pacific in 2007 with the opening of the Club’s Singapore office. He had been Director (Hong Kong) since 2011.
North noted that under Lo’s leadership the Club’s presence in China and Hong Kong had grown by more than 300% over the past 10 years, with the Asia-Pacific region now accounting for 36% of the Club’s worldwide entered gross tonnage.
North of England Club CEO Paul Jennings said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alan for his service and commitment over the past 23 years. He has made a valuable contribution to the strong presence the Club enjoys in the Asia Pacific region today. I wish him a long and restful retirement.”
Lo will continue as a part-time consultant to North until the end of February 2019. Jenny Chu will take over as Manager (Hong Kong) supported by her colleagues Iris Shiu and Katherine Yuen and working in close cooperation with North’s other Asian Offices, in particular Singapore and Shanghai, and the head office in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
