Celebrating in style: First Names Group marks official launch of Hong Kong and Singapore operations

25 May 2017

Last week, around 130 guests joined our First Names in Hong Kong and Singapore to celebrate the ‘official’ launch of our Asia business.

The two evening events, which took place on 16 and 18 May respectively, saw clients, intermediaries and First Names mingling and getting to know one another. A resident DJ set the tone of our Hong Kong party at stylish city-centre hotspot Duddell’s, while in Singapore our guests enjoyed sweeping 180-degree views across the city from the exclusive Straits Bar at The Tower Club.

During the evenings, our Chief Commercial Officer, Kevin O’Connell, and local Managing Directors Stuart Dowding and Karen O’Hanlon, took to the stage to talk about the next phase of First Names Group’s Asia strategy, thank guests for their ongoing support and reinforce the importance of relationships to our business and culture.

The events marked a significant milestone for First Names Group in Asia. While our offices in Hong Kong and Singapore have been operational since early 2015, the past two years have seen our teams working successfully to build solid foundations for our business in the region, establishing our brand in the local marketplace with a firm focus on the delivery of superior client service.
