Meet the Winners of the FEM APAC EMMAs!

A huge congratulations to all of our APAC EMMAs Winners!
Meet the Winners of the FEM APAC EMMAs!

On Thursday 7 September 2017, the winners of this year’s FEM APAC EMMAs (Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards) were announced at a glittering gala dinner at the Harbour Grand Hotel, Hong Kong.

The FEM EMMAs are the premier awards for the global mobility and International HR industry and on Thursday night, following a highly successful one-day Summit, key figures, leaders and companies gathered to celebrate the brightest and best in the APAC region.

Claire Tennant-Scull, Head of Content at FEM said:

“The FEM EMMAs really are the gold standard awards for the global mobility and international HR industry. They are the only truly global, yet region-specific awards with the greatest breadth of categories for both corporate professionals and service providers.”
“EMMAs entries are rigorously judged by a team of highly experienced, senior figures in the industry, who are drawn from a range of disciplines across the APAC region.  So these accolades mean a great deal. It’s so important to receive recognition among your peers for innovation and hard work and so I think the winners and all those on the shortlist should feel extremely proud.”
“This year, I’ve been particularly thrilled that we have been able to recognise the extraordinary talent in this region. We’ve seen more entries than ever from companies and individuals who originate in APAC and we are so pleased to have awarded our EMMA for her Outstanding Contribution to Global Mobility to Maggie Zhang of AIG Insurance, Hong Kong, who is originally from mainland China.”

Following a superb Chinese banquet the 150+ assembled guests applauded the winners, runners up and highly-commended companies, teams and individuals who were honoured across 24 categories.

All submissions were judged by a panel of independent experts against a set of strict criteria. The anticipation has been building ever since entries opened in December, and the atmosphere was one of great excitement. To receive an FEM EMMA is considered a great accolade and many of the winners were justifiably proud of their achievement.
