HONG KONG - December 3, 2013, Mr. Robert Xu, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Kingdee, received the Directors of the Year Awards 2013. The jury commended him for encouraging diverse views in the boardroom and cherishes the importance of achieving common goals.
Directors of the Year Awards is organized by the Hong Kong Institute of Directors (HKIoD) and co-organized by Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau of HKSAR Government. First launched in 2001, the Awards aims to recognize directors and board of directors for outstanding director practices and corporate governance.
Mr Xu thanked the organizer for bestowing the Awards upon him, “It is my honor to receiving the Awards. I strongly believe that a prominent listed company shall take care of both the interest of its shareholders and stakeholders. During the period of social transition, we should strive to overcome challenges and take the lead to help the industry and business ecosystem to strive. Over the past two decades, we have been actively promoting management reform of enterprises through the adoption of new technologies and management models, and helping them to achieve business transformation and upgrading.”
Dr. Kelvin Wong, Chairman of HKIoD said, “We believe a dedicated effort in implementing environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies contribute to achieving a high standard of corporate governance, and creating sustainable value to the organization and beyond.”
Professor K C Chan, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of HKSAR Government, as the guest of honor, congratulated the winners of the Awards, “As we shift toward an information and service-based economy, intangible assets represent an increasing weight in evaluating company value.”
Mr. Xu stressed that this is more than a personal encouragement. It is a recognition of the efforts by Kingdee’s Board over the years. For the coming years, Kingdee shall remain steadfast in shaping an outstanding enterprise for its shareholders, stakeholders and the community at large.
