By Lydia Lau, Vice President, Global Operations
Eleven and a half years have passed since we moved into our office at Lyndhurst Terrace.
A lot has happened over that period.
I feel proud to be part of the many great stories created with numerous Hoffmanites over the years. No matter what my role was along the way, I’ve enjoyed this journey 200 percent. (Don’t ask me to reconcile this number with my accounting background.)
I’ve been Nurse Lydia, a great tour guide, a work-till-midnight bean counter, a witness to the rise of IFC Mall blocking our view of Tsim Sha Tsui, an office expansionist, and a renovation director.
I’ve also been the victim of a thick paper cutter, which resulted in eight stitches. No problem. The thumb is once again functioning just fine.
Last but not least, I’ve been somebody who sailed along with the team through changes and the typical ups and downs that come with growth.
Today, we are expanding. I’m excited to be contributing to the next chapter of Hoffman Hong Kong history; albeit, in a different scene. The new setting is certainly a lot better than the previous one, where after a run of new business wins and staff expansion, space was becoming something of a commodity!.
I’m grateful for the patience and understanding the team showed while we outgrew our old home.
I know I will miss “Bai Fa Gai” (Lyndhurst Terrace).
It’s going to be the same journey.
Just a different setting.
