Appointment of New Chairman of the Council

 

Dear colleagues, students, alumni, and Council and Court members,
 

We welcome with great pleasure the appointment of Mr Lester Garson Huang, JP, Managing Partner and Co-Chairman of PC Woo & Co, as the Chairman of the Council of City University of Hong Kong (CityU) by the Chief Executive of the HKSAR, for a period of three years with effect from 1 January 2018.


Mr Huang is a renowned legal professional with extensive experience and expertise in wide-ranging fields of legal practice. He was the President of the Law Society of Hong Kong. Mr Huang has a strong interest in education, and is the Chairman of the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research.


Throughout his illustrious career, Mr Huang has made valuable contributions to numerous public service committees and professional bodies. He has rich experience in higher education and has served on the Councils of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the University of Hong Kong. Mr Huang also has a deep concern for youth development. He is the President of the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, one of the largest local NGOs in this field.


CityU looks forward to moving to the next level of development under Mr Huang’s able leadership.


On behalf of the University, I would also like to take this opportunity to express our deep appreciation to Mr Herman Hu Shao-ming for his excellent contributions as Chairman of the Council during his two terms of office.


With Mr Hu’s strong support and guidance, CityU has accomplished many remarkable achievements, including, among others, groundbreaking results in fundraising, the successful establishment of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences, and the launch of Hong Kong’s first undergraduate veterinary programme to spearhead innovation. It was also under his able leadership and tireless efforts that the stewardship of the City University Community College was successfully transferred to the University of Wollongong, thus enabling its further development into a private university.


Mr Hu will always be a highly regarded friend and close ally of the CityU community.


We wish both Mr Huang and Mr Hu a prosperous 2018!



Way Kuo
President and University Distinguished Professor
