|BRE Distinguished Alumni Series - Second Edition
Distinguished Alumni Series - Second Edition was published in June 2006, Volume One of which was published in 2003. Instead of publishing a Volume Two as initially intended, it was noted that many listed alumni have had further achievements lately and an update becomes necessary. This Second Edition is therefore both an update of Volume One and an expansion to include more Distinguished Alumni as more biographies become available. The publication of this Second Edition is also to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Alma Mater in 2007, particularly when the Department of Building and Real Estate has continued to produce eminent leaders for the building and real estate industry in Hong Kong and beyond. As for Volume One, the inclusion of names in this Second Edition of the Distinguished Alumni Series is selected at random and on the availability of biographies and updates. It is by no means a ranking exercise.
In addition to those alumni already listed in Volume One, this Second Edition presents additional alumni listed below (in alphabetical order) who have kindly provided us with their brief biographies. Although some alumni have declined their inclusion in the publication, we are still fortunate enough to enlist alumni of all the predecessors of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. All these alumni have distinguished accomplishments as dedicated officials in the civil service or successful entrepreneurs in the building and real estate professions, either currently or before their retirement. They have rendered substantial contributions not only to their respective professions, but also to Hong Kong at large and beyond. They are truly role models for the younger generation.
