Tony ChanDirector, Media Relations & Corporate Communications

    I am a policymaker by training and a communicator at heart. For almost two decades, I was a member of the elite policymaking team at the Government of Hong Kong, and then a senior manager at the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), the city’s de-facto central bank. Like opera (which I love!), my days were filled with streams of calm, episodes of melodrama, and exchanges of brilliance. In those high functioning environments, I played roles in communications, media and public relations, stakeholder engagement, crisis communications, speech writing, and governmental relations where I articulated complex policy issues and directed them to the appropriate audiences, whether an audience of one, an audience of millions, or members of the Hong Kong Legislative Council. I enjoyed developing messages that could influence opinions and generate public support on a variety of policy initiatives.

    During my time at HKMA, I oversaw the development of communication materials that underpinned the successful launch of a number of new, strategic initiatives, including the Fintech Office. I also am a keen supporter of sustainability, and rolled out the first ‘Responsible Investment’ program for the official reserves managed by the HKMA. I am a graduate of the University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and recently settled in Vancouver. I enjoy reading and opera, especially the Italian works composed around the Romantic period.
