IFPI (Hong Kong Group) Announces the Retirement of Chairman


The IFPI (Hong Kong Group) Limited (IFPI HKG) hereby announced the retirement of Mr. NG Yu as Chairman of IFPI HKG effective on 31 October 2016.
Mr. NG has been a key participant of our governing body for more than 20 years, joining the IFPI HKG first as a committee member and was subsequently elected to become Chairman in 2008.  During his tenure as Chairman, Mr. NG had provided leadership to the Group and we are grateful to his contribution, in particular, by the many industry projects he led, namely the Hong Kong Music Fair, Hong Kong Asian-Pop Music Festival (HKAMF) and the LIVETUBE projects which include the latest Hong Kong Music Video Awards.  Mr. NG’s perceptive leadership, influence in the recording industry and commitment with group matters is treasured.
We are also pleased to announce that Mr. NG will continue his association with the Group by accepting our invitation to chair the HKAMF 2017 Organizing Committee until the completion of the entire project.  We collectively would like to wish Mr. NG the best in his future endeavours.
In succeeding to the vacant seat, Mr. Gary Chan was elected unanimously by the Committee to become the Chairman of the IFPI (Hong Kong Group) Limited, and Mr. Colin Cheung as the Chairman of Phonographic Performance (South East Asia) Limited (PPSEAL).  We are also pleased to announce that we have invited the representative of Emperor Entertainment (Hong Kong) Limited, the new CEO of Emperor Entertainment Group Ms. Shirley Hughes to join our Committee.   In accordance with the Articles of our association, all Committee members may serve their full term until the election to take place at the next AGM of our company.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate these new appointees who are well respected by peers in the recording industry on their new office with the Group.
