About

Gigi Chao is the executive vice-chairman of Cheuk Nang (Holdings) [HKSE 0131]. She is also an avid aviator, a passionate member of the community, and a voice for the LGBTQ community in Hong Kong. Gigi graduated from the University of Manchester, Manchester School of Architecture, England, in Architecture with Honours. Subsequently, she worked with prominent British Architect and Urban Designer Sir Terry Farrell in London and Hong Kong where she participated in projects such as Kowloon Station, Tsuen Wan West Station, and design competitions for iconic buildings in mainland China.

In 2008, she founded Faith in Love Foundation with a vision for service in humility and yearning for simple giving. She has always been a passionate volunteer for various charitable organisations from a young age, and had travelled extensively doing volunteer work in her formative years to Malawi with World Vision, Alaska with Habitat for Humanity, and Hunan with Sowers Action.

She is also one of the key personnel for liaison with government departments and the general aviation community. As a helicopter pilot of the Hong Kong Air Cadets Corp, her rank is that of Specialist Flight Lieutenant, for which she flies regularly and plays a diplomatic role for important overseas visitors.
