Marathoner and Financial Leader
Drives Corporate Transformation
Macau-born MBA 2002 graduate Rosetta Fong had a big year in 2015. Not only did she become group vice chairman at Convoy Financial Holdings Limited, which she cofounded in 1998, she also ran the 250-kilometre ‘Hell’s Marathon’ in the Sahara Desert. What is surprising about this financial woman of steel is that she initially knew little about the finance sector and, what’s more, disliked exercise as a child. Foresight, strength of will and a fun-loving nature are what push her to challenge herself at every turn. They also drive the innovative corporate culture under the leadership of Rosetta and the senior management team. Read more here, or click here to view Rosetta’s video messages.
