Exceptional companies recognised at HKB National and International Business Awards, Technology Excellence Awards 2023
Hong Kong's business and technology champions were recognised at the awards presentation day on 21 September 2023.
Hong Kong has long been at the forefront of innovation and economic growth in Asia. The city's strategic location, well-established infrastructure, and business-friendly policies have made it a global hub for finance, trade, and technology.
With a thriving startup ecosystem and a strong focus on fintech, Hong Kong continues to attract both established corporations and entrepreneurial talent. Its role as a gateway to the vast Chinese market, combined with a commitment to research and development, positions Hong Kong as a dynamic centre for technological advancement and business opportunities, ensuring its continued relevance on the world stage.
In recognition of companies that have thrived in their respective industries over the past year, Hong Kong Business proudly named its winners in the HKB National Business Awards, HKB International Business Awards, and Technology Excellence Awards on 21 September 2023.
The HKB National and International Business Awards, in their sixth and eighth editions, respectively, honour exceptional local and first-rate international businesses in Hong Kong and give recognition to their outstanding initiatives.
The awards programme was judged by Charbon Lo, Partner at Crowe (HK) CPA Limited; Eugene Liu, Managing Partner at RSM Hong Kong; and Andy Wong, IPO leader and China and Hong Kong Business Leader at SW Hong Kong.
Meanwhile, the HKB Technology Excellence Awards lauds outstanding companies that made exceptional contributions in pursuit of technological innovation.
Entries were evaluated by Matthieu Lambert, Partner, Consulting Microsoft Technology Practice at Deloitte China & Asia Pacific; David Chen, Partner, Technology Consulting at Ernst & Young Advisory Services Limited; Stanley Sum, Partner, Digital Enablement at KPMG China; and James Lee, Partner - Consulting (Analytics & Cloud Transformation) at PwC Mainland China and Hong Kong.
When asked about his judging criteria, PwC’s Lee explained that he focused on three main attributes: industry-leading, innovative, and impactful.
“In a corporate world, the ultimate goal of any form of digital transformation is to drive desired business outcomes. I think any judge would love to hear a happy ending story that vividly describes how the solution was able to bring many positive impacts to the organisation,” Lee said.
