HONG
KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 11 November 2020 – Luxury media group Tatler has officially revealed the full 5th
edition of the annual Gen.T List, sponsored by Credit Suisse. The list has
become a definitive reference of leaders of tomorrow – the most promising
millennial entrepreneurs who are redefining the landscape of Asian culture and
business. Previous honourees have included tech entrepreneur Eric Gnock Fah and
actor Henry Golding and many others, before they became a zeitgeist of Asian
success on a global stage.

 

“There has never been a time when we’ve
been in greater need of disruptive people, ideas and businesses–to innovate, to
create jobs and, most importantly, to give hope,” says Tamara Lamunière, Head
of Generation T Asia.

In the last five years, Gen.T has created a
community through events and amplified the influence of its members through the
Tatler Asia Group’s media platforms, in the process building an Asia-wide
community of the regions’ most promising 25-40 year old entrepreneurs. Gen.T is
present in eight markets across Asia, including Hong Kong, China, Taiwan,
Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

 

“Gen. T represents a unique community of
like-minded young leaders, and it facilitates constructive interactions between
individuals who share the same aspirations towards shaping the future to be a
better place and bringing positive change to society,” says Francois Monnet,
Head of Private Banking for North Asia and Chief Executive Hong Kong Branch,
Credit Suisse. “As the Bank for Entrepreneurs in Asia Pacific, Credit Suisse is
supportive of such young talents, as we believe we share similar values with
these young generation of new leaders who are passionate about bringing
innovative ways to drive sustainability and positive engagement across all
fields ranging social, economic and cultural sectors.”
