GLG Brings In New Management To APAC Team

The New York-headquartered membership network has brought in fresh blood to support its APAC development.

Gerson Lehrman Group has hired Stephen Bosshart of Standard Chartered Bank, and Eddie Kong of Babylon Education, into two newly-created roles for its Asia-Pacific leadership team.

Bosshart joins GLG as managing director and head of China, and will be based in Shanghai. Kong joins as managing director and head of operations, and will be based in Hong Kong.

Bosshart was previously managing director at Standard Chartered Bank, overseeing commercial banking in Eastern China. He has also served as associate partner at financial advisory firm McKinsey & Company, servicing clients across Greater China.

Kong began his career at Cathay Pacific Airways, followed by several years at McKinsey. From 2013 to 2016, he was the head of operations development at The Kowloon Motor Bus Company. He was then chief operating officer at Babylon Education, where he managed and developed new schools in Hong Kong.

“We're committed to investing in and developing the very best local talent to help us deliver on our mission," said Evan Auyang, head of APAC and managing director at GLG.
