The Inspiration to Create a Beautiful New World

Fion Ipp (BBA, 1995) possesses an entrepreneurial spirit that goes back to her schooldays. After completing her business studies, she worked for P&G in mainland China until family obligations made her return home to Hong Kong in 2001. During this time, she noticed a gap in the city’s market for Korean beauty products.

After steering through difficult times in 2003 and 2008, today Fion is the Managing Director of AMOREPACIFIC Hong Kong. To read her inspiring story, please click here.
