Chris Lee

Director and General Manager, Hong Kong

Chris heads up Ethos BeathChapman’s Hong Kong business, overseeing its Financial Services, Fintech & Technology practices, as well as the strategic development of EBC’s Hong Kong operations.

Chris joined EBC in June 2020 and is hands-on within the transformation and change space. His main area of focus and expertise extends across the financial services sector, partnering multinational insurers and banks across both contract and perm hiring.

Chris gravitates towards the senior end of the market, utilising his extensive network to forge long-term relationships with business leaders within financial services.

Chris began his recruitment career with (what was then) a UK centric agency and was heavily involved in their global expansion. He began within the actuarial market, placing general insurance actuaries into the London market, before relocating to Hong Kong to be part of their start up office there. After developing the actuarial, underwriting, broking and claims teams across Asia, he moved to New York to set up their business, returning to Hong Kong in 2017 and shifting focus to the contract market within business transformation and change.

When out of the office, Chris plays rugby for Hong Kong Football Club, although may well hang the boots up soon and concentrate on competitive triathlon events. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics & Economic Policy (BSc).
