Leading global travel management company FCM Travel Solutions has announced the appointment of Anna Wong as Director of Human Resources for Asia. In her new role, Anna will be responsible for leading the full scope of human resources work including recruitment and talent management, diversity and inclusion, organisational development as well as training and development.

Earlier in her career, Anna spent seven years with Accor in Australia where she was responsible for recruitment, talent management, compensation and benefits, employee engagement and corporate social responsibility. She left the hotel giant as the Talent and Culture Manager for two business district hotels in Melbourne. Anna’s move to China in 2017 saw her joining FCM. Since then, she has played an instrumental role in developing and delivering FCM’s corporate culture in the mainland China and Hong Kong market before recently becoming FCM’s Human Resources Director. Anna is also passionate about developing the role of women employees and leaders in the workplace and currently leads the Womenwise* chapter for FCM in Asia.

On the new appointment, Bertrand Saillet, Managing Director, Asia for FCM said, “Anna brings a great understanding of our business to this role and will be able to use her ability to apply best-in-class HR solutions to bolster our efforts towards a sustainable workforce of the future. This makes her a strong fit for the next step of FCM Asia’s development as she has proven to be a highly experienced leader, capable of leading the team members towards continued growth and enabling each individual to achieve their full potential.”

“I am excited to take on this role at a time where the company is undergoing significant changes. With this comes a shift towards effective and purpose-driven talent management to drive a high-performing organisation. I look forward to strengthening FCM’s talent acquisition strategy, fostering an environment that builds careers with support, training and development opportunities for our current team,” said Anna.
