Corum CHU

Assistant Vice President, HKT Payment, HKT Limited

Corum loves the Internet, and the Internet gave him a career.
 
Starting from the era of BBS and then newsgroup, Corum actively participated in (or was addicted to) various online discussion platforms. His enthusiasm for the Internet impressed a global dotcom company, which offered him a summer internship and then a part-time staff position while he was still an undergraduate. The burst of the dotcom bubble forced him to pick another career path after graduation, but soon he rejoined the Internet world when he embarked on what would become a 10+ year telecom career, serving companies including Hutchison Telecom, PCCW-HKT and SmarTone. Corum is currently taking care of Tap & Go, the newly formed mobile payment business of his company, while delivers digital marketing courses to marketing professionals as a visiting lecturer in regular basis.
 
The Internet has also given Corum lots of friends and connections, and he hopes these networks, together with his marketing experience, can help bring about more attractive and exclusive benefits to our alumni.
