HSBC CEO Makes Hong Kong Homecoming

Have you ever considered working in Hong Kong? The fast-growing Asian market has not only attracted top-notch bankers from the Wall Street, but also the HSBC CEO.

The 144-year-old HSBC has relocated its CEO Michael Geoghegan from London back to Hong Kong after 16 years. In a welcome ceremony today, Mike said he's going to enjoy a cup of Chinese tea as the first thing to do in his Hong Kong office.
