Hong Kong Business salutes the crème de la crème at the High Flyers Awards 2019

Standard Chartered won the Grand Enterprise Award for Bank of the Year.

In its 16th year, the High Flyers Awards is gliding above and beyond. For the 2019 edition of the awards, 18 enterprises in their respective sectors were recognised for their innovative business practices, outstanding quality of service, and relentless efforts to contribute towards social progress and business growth.

These businesses represent a wide range of industries, including banking and finance, insurance, legal services, interior design, information technology and telecommunications, boutique hotels, corporate accommodations, and F&B.

One of the outstanding performances this year was Standard Chartered Bank’s Enterprise Award as Bank of the Year, under the visionary leadership of its Executive Director and CEO, Mary Huen.

"Our awardees this year encapsulate what business excellence and resilience means for the people of Hong Kong. In the midst of an economic downturn and social unrest, they have risen to the occasion by delivering innovation and setting their sights on fresh opportunities to expand globally. As the city and economy recovers to a new reality, so will these companies carry the ever-burning torch of positive influence for others to follow," says Tim Charlton, publisher of Hong Kong Business.
