Introduce yourself to our members. Tell us who you are.
My name is Kory Lam, Cluster Branch Manager in San Francisco. My responsibilities include managing resources and staff, developing and attaining sale goals, delivering exceptional customer service, provide coaching to my team and helping them develop their skills.
I began my career with HSBC in 2005 and held various positions throughout my career with HSBC Bank. Upon finishing the secondary school in Hong Kong, I continued my educational training in the United States. I graduated with a B.S. Degree from San Francisco State University, followed by a M.S. Degree from Golden Gate University and hold Series 6, 63 and health/ life Insurance licenses. Currently, I’m pursuing the Master Certificate of Behavioral Industrial Psychology from Golden Gate University. I serve as the chair on the Hong Kong Association of Northern California, Board of Director of APA Family Support Service and Co-Chair of N.CA APIC within HSBC.
What does HSBC do?
HSBC is one of the largest banking and financial services organizations in the world, with operations in 64 countries and territories. We aim to be where the growth is, enabling businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, and, ultimately, helping people to fulfill their hopes and realize their ambitions.
Why are you interested in joining HKANC?
I joined HKANC back in 2003 as student member. Hong Kong and San Francisco are my homes. I always want to do something good in both cities. I was inspired by all the board of directors who have the passion to fostering closer economic, cultural and academic ties between Hong Kong and Northern California. I really want to be part of it. In addition, I have a great opportunity in HKANC to expend my network, create more new business opportunities and have positive impact in my career.
What do you want to say to our members?
2020 is a very challenging year for all of us. However, we must get ready towards recovery to ensure that 2021 is a year of growth and prosperity. Please come and join HKANC and start taking advantage of even more great membership benefits and opportunities to grow your businesses and expand your network. I want to invite you to join this awesome journey with us.
