Champion REIT is also dedicated to giving back to society, creating long-term value for both its business and the communities where it operates.
Among all the awards won, the Directors of the Year Awards 2018 (Listed Companies – Executive Directors) received by Ms Ada Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Champion REIT, from the Hong Kong Institute of Directors was a first. The award recognised Ms Wong for her determination to promote and implement good corporate governance, advocate and put into practice good governance concepts and lead the company in achieving new milestones, making her a model of the award theme “Leadership in Times of Change”.
Langham Place, always embracing innovation and change, was a recipient again of the Marketing Excellence Awards from Marketing Magazine.
