Delighted with winning the election, Susanna, director of Li & Fung Development (China) says that more women are now entering the accountancy profession and taking on senior positions such as partners or directors of  companies.

Set up in 1973, the HKICPA issues accounting standards and regulates the city’s 35,000 accountants: a regulatory body as well as a membership body.

Looking forward to the challenges ahead, Susanna’s role will continue to play an important part in the regulatory field and she will also work with the government and other parties on the reform proposal.

Susanna graduated with a BA in Economics in 1982 (when Economics was part of the Management School) and went on to work at Grant Thornton accountancy firm in Sheffield. Having moved back to HK over 20 years ago, Susanna has worked in several positions related to China until joining Li & Fung Development (China) as a director in 2006.

Most recently, Susanna was awarded a ‘Medal of Honour’ by the HKSAR Government for her contribution to the community as well as achievement in the accountancy profession.
