HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hong Kong Business successfully recognized outstanding business
leaders and firms at the inaugural Hong Kong Business Management
Excellence Awards 2018 held at Conrad Hotel Hong Kong on 28 November.

On its inaugural year, the Hong Kong Business Management Excellence
Award aims to honor the City’s most outstanding business leaders,
including noteworthy individuals and teams whose initiatives have
brought tangible business gains for their company’s operations.

This year’s winners were judged by an elite panel that includes Andrew
Ross, Managing Director at Baker Tilly Hong Kong Limited; Charbon Lo,
Director at Crowe (HK) CPA Limited; Roy Lo, Managing Partner at
SHINEWING (HK) CPA Limited; and Anthony Tam, Executive Director in Tax
Services at Mazars.

William Sim, President of Heilind Asia Pacific, wins Executive of the
Award. He says: “It’s a great honor to be given
this prestigious award. I take it as an endorsement of my belief in
people and that people resource is the single most important resource in
any company. However, the success of Heilind owes to the contributions
of all working in our company with the commitment to be the best in
class. I’m only accepting this award on their behalf. I will like to
conclude by saying this award is not for me alone but it is for each and
every single employee working in this great company.”

Heilind is the largest interconnect distributor in North America with a
history of more than 40 years. And Heilind Asia Pacific was officially
launched on 12 Dec 2012; by replication of Heilind successful business
model in US, driving the concept of “Distribution As It Should Be” and
making a difference to suppliers and customers, Heilind Asia Pacific had
been outgrowing the market for nearly 6 years.

When talking about what inspired him to achieve this success, William
mentioned: “Since early in my career, I learned that People is the most
important resource- I like to call it a resource that drives all other
resources. No matter how visionary our corporate mission is, how good a
strategy we have to drive it, how much investments we have, it is
ultimately people who make things happened. I also learned it is
important to establish goals, communicate them well in the organization,
have milestones to track our progress and have the courage to fine tune
a strategy whenever necessary and finally to recognize, celebrate and
reward successes.”

Under the leadership of William Sim, Heilind Asia Pacific managed to
achieve double of the initial financial target in 6 years. Although many
external factors are causing the market to slow down visibly recently,
despite expectation of a difficult and challenging market with numerous
uncertainties, William is quite confident to continue building Heilind
presence in Asia and to double the financial objectives again in 5 years.
