New IAI Hong Kong branch chairman appointed

The IAI has appointed Nelson Wong as the new Hong Kong branch chair.

Nelson, deputy vice president of dormakaba in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, has over 20 years’ experience in the ironmongery industry.

Nelson has been a member of the Institute since November 2012 when the Hong Kong branch of the institute was inaugurated at the British Consulate General Hong Kong. He has since introduced the GAI education programme to his own team, where they now have 4 DipGAI holders and 3 RegAIs in China and Hong Kong.

Nelson Wong said:

“As branch chair, I want to improve the understanding of the importance of using qualified Registered Architectural Ironmongers (RegAI) amongst the construction industry in China, especially architects.

“I also want to promote the GAI education and CPD programme to all ironmongers to encourage them to get their Diploma qualification and then become a RegAI. Having the RegAI designation indicates professionalism and a commitment to continuous learning.”
