Holborn Assets has made a double appointment of a CEO and Vice President to lead its Hong Kong operation.
Jason Conlin, who has been with the firms since it was established, will be the new CEO while Greg Miller, formerly of Capstone, will take up the position of VP.
The company announced the changes scotching rumors that current Asia CEO Edward Harris is leaving the firm.
Conlin will take over the role previously held by Edward Harris, assuming all responsibilities with immediate effect. “Harris remains with the company and will assume a new role, which will be announced in the coming weeks,” the company said.
Conlin said: “I’m looking forward to the role and excited by the potential with Holborn in the region. Ed has certainly given us a great platform on which to build and we all wish him every success in his new role.”
Miller added: “It’s an exciting time to be joining Holborn. They are a new player in the HK market and they are already attracting a lot of attention here for all the right reasons, I look forward to being part of the team and contributing towards the company’s success.”
Holborn Assets Hong Kong was formed out of the acquisition of Globaleye Hong Kong in January 2018, establishing the companies second operation in Asia following the acquisition of Greenwood Consulting in Malaysia.
Robert Parker, Holborn Assets founder, said: “We are hugely excited by both appointments in Hong Kong. Holborn has once again demonstrated its capacity to attract the very best talent in the industry and with Jason’s appointment we have shown the depth of experience available within our existing operations.
