Glenn Fry
Hong Kong Chapter Young Leader & Committee Member for the Global Young Leaders Committee

Tell us a little about your current role. 
Having just relocated from London to Hong Kong in March, I took up a Senior Director position within the Client Solutions team for CBRE, covering the whole of Asia Pacific.

Why were you interesting in getting involved in CoreNet?
Being actively involved in CoreNet is an important part of my day job. Networking and keeping aware of market trends is like buying essential food and storing it in the freezer for future consumption. Not to mention the amount of friends and great people I have met along the way!

What keeps you up at night?
Thinking about how to conquer the following day’s challenges, and wondering if the alarm on my phone will actually go off!

What three words embody your personal brand?
Organized, relentless, well-connected 

What is the one App you can’t live without?
Since moving to Hong Kong, the HK Taxi App translates where I want to go in Cantonese in seconds. Genius!

How do you spend time outside of the office?
You’ll find me down at the gym, in a bar near our Hong Kong office or in a great restaurant recommended by friends and colleagues. Not necessarily in that order!

What would you say most motivates you to do what you do?
Our industry is at the forefront of workplace productivity. All businesses rely on their people to gain advantage over their competitors, and what we do directly supports their performance. We’re more relevant now than ever before.

What is it like to work in your particular location?
Hong Kong is incredibly fast paced where the candle is well and truly lit at both ends. It isn’t for the faint hearted, but if you’re looking to work in an environment full of energy where every day feels like you’re getting the most out of life, there is no better place to be.
