Brian Chan promoted to lead Mirum Hong Kong's new technology forum as chief technology officer

Brian Chan.jpgBrian Chan has been promoted to Chief Technology Officer for Regional Business at Mirum Hong Kong, and will lead the digital agency's new Technology Forum. The Technology Forum is a new business unit that will spur innovation and R&D in Hong Kong and throughout the region by connecting clients with new ideas from the start-up community.

Mirum's recent history as a collection of founder-led agencies helps it understand the start-up mentality and how to connect start-ups with commercial opportunities. Combine that with its understanding of client needs and Mirum is the ideal facilitator for both parties.
Chan (pictured above), who has more than 13 years' experience in software development and the digital interactive world, joined Mirum in early 2014 as Technology Solutions Director tasked with implementing best practices for Mirum's work in Asia Pacific and Greater China.

"The start-up circle in Hong Kong offers some very exciting prospects and is the next frontier in terms of technology and innovation," said Chan. "We're hoping to play a significant role within the community, one which will benefit both start-ups and our clients."

He previously worked in New York, Singapore and Hong Kong for clients including Nokia, Bank of America, Time Inc., Turner Networks, Hong Kong Jockey Club and MasterCard.

Chan has a degree in computer science from the University of California, Irvine.

The Technology Forum builds on Mirum Hong Kong's role as the digital agency's Asia-Pacific Centre of Excellence in Technology and Innovation.

CEO Win Mak is excited about adding another layer of innovation to the agency saying, "We see the Technology Forum as a great way to utilise the limitless innovations created by Hong Kong's start-ups and to help convert them into business solutions for our clients. Brian has a wealth of experience in the digital world and is the ideal leader to build this bridge between our clients and the start-up community."


You can't even brand yourself properly said:

Mirum is just a horrible horrible name for an agency.
