Chairman, LKF Group
The Lan Kwai Fong boss has been vocal about Hong Kong's rise during Covid-19
Allan Zeman is the chairman of Lan Kwai Fong Group and a major property owner and developer in Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong area, which includes the modern venue hub, California Tower.
Zeman has been vocal about Hong Kong’s rise during the pandemic, and has been Hong Kong’s voice over the past few years with foreign press. He credits his team’s resilience to overcoming the challenges of Covid-19. “Over the last six months, as Covid-19 has stabilised in Hong Kong, our business has grown stronger and our properties are 100 per cent leased in the LKF area. This showed us how success can come from adversity,” he says.
Zeman wears many hats, serving as independent non-executive director for Sino Land, Tsim Sha Tsui Properties, TVB and Fosun Tourism Group. The mogul is also a non-executive chairman of gaming operator Wynn Macau, and a director of the Star Ferry Company, among others. While serving as chairman of Ocean Park from 2003 to 2014, Zeman raised visitor numbers and generated record profits despite the concurrent opening of Hong Kong Disneyland.
Zeman is also the owner of Paradise Properties Group, the Thailand-based developer behind the award-winning Andara Resort in Phuket.
