Vicky Wong
Senior Communications Systems Engineer

  • If you could launch anything into outer space, what would it be?

    I would launch a movable Robot into outer space, which has to be extra durable, have a camera installed and can be remotely controlled. Then I can control the Robot, move it around and watch the spectacular outer space view from the earth.

     

    I’ve joined AsiaSat twice, the first time as a one year student trainee and the second time as a permanent staff. I chose to rejoin AsiaSat after graduation because I have had a good time during the trainee period and I really like the multinational working environment here. I’ve learnt a lot from my colleagues, especially from my previous Norwegian supervisor, who is  always nice, patient and willing to teach. I’ve learnt a lot from him both at technical knowledge and the way of working, which is to be patient and professional.

Senior Spacecraft Engineer

  • Who is your greatest inspiration?


    Isaac Newton wrote, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” We must always learn from others, so that we might be the inspiration for future generations of giants.

    Before permanently joining AsiaSat, I was a student trainee in the Engineering Department where I improved my technical and personal skills. Looking back on my career path, from student trainee to senior satellite control engineer and now spacecraft engineer, I've had many opportunities to grow professionally. If you asked me to go back 10 years and choose my career again, I would definitely make the same decision to join AsiaSat.

Credit Control Officer

  • What is one interesting fact most people don't know about you?


    I really love animals.

    A strong company with a harmonious working environment is important to me, and that’s why I’ve chosen to work with AsiaSat for the past 14 years. The opportunities I've been given and the coworkers I've been able to interact with really drive me keep improving and growing in my career. While outside of work I love staying active – I enjoy exercising, diving, and travelling. I’m also certified in both Hatha Yoga instruction and as a personal trainer.

Alison Yeung
Communications Systems Engineer

  • If you could launch anything into outer space, what would it be?


    A video camera, to see what a working satellite in orbit really looks like.

    I started working with AsiaSat when I was an Electronic Engineering student at CUHK. During that time my colleagues patiently taught me the technical knowledge and customer service skills I needed to do my job well. After graduation, I naturally decided to return to the AsiaSat family working in the Customer Network Center because I love the challenge and appreciate the investment they’ve made in me as both a person and a colleague.

Preston Lai
Senior Satellite Control Engineer

  • What would you bring with you if you were stuck on a deserted island?


    Definitely the book 'How to Build a Castle with Sand'.

    I’m responsible for performing health analyses, developing software procedures for satellite automation and preparing all health reports. My interest in telecommunications began when I was an Electronic and Computer Engineering student at HKUST, and I joined AsiaSat for the chance to develop that interest into a career. Since joining, I've been able to grow in my knowledge and interest even more than I thought I could. I really love studying satellites, orbit and astronomy, but I also enjoy basketball, reading and playing musical instruments.

Captain Ip
Senior Communications Systems Engineer

  • Who is your biggest inspiration?

    Willis Carrier, an American engineer credited with inventing the first modern air conditioner. Make life easier and more convenient should be the target of engineers.

    My responsibility is helping and supporting customers to use our satellites, from link design, ground equipment qualification to on-site troubleshooting. Apart from customer technical support, investigating and studying new technologies is another focus area of my work. In this position, I have experienced many challenges which helped me to grow and develop various personal skills such as problem solving and leadership. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the colleagues for their help.

     

Catherine Chan
Director, Internal Audit

  • Who is your greatest inspiration?


    Jesus teaches me love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. All these characters are applicable in my daily life and working environment, which I thrive on interacting with individuals from different departments, companies and all walks of life. These characteristics further assist me in achieving the company’s brand values of Ever Bettering Ourselves, Partnering, Being Dependable and Zealously Committed.

    I joined AsiaSat in February 2009 right after the Chinese New Year Holidays. Since then every day has been thrilling in my professional life and I'm still enthralled with the many new things that can happen moving forward. I'm so thankful I started this job when I got the offer instead of going to vacation as originally planned during that holiday.

Alan Wong
Sales Director

  • Who is your biggest inspiration?


    My parents always told me to put myself in others' shoes – that others may not always think how I think and that it's not necessary for everyone to agree 100% of the time.

    Their advice has offered me a useful perspective throughout my career. In my role of Sales, ability to learn and adapt quickly, be proactive and considerate, and understand that others needs may not be simple or straightforward has helped me to manage successful projects, and has been essential in ensuring we exceed customer expectations.
