Mr. Frederick Chan, Senior Legal Counsel, Legal and Compliance Department
Frederick Chan manages a team of lawyers and legal professionals to provide legal, intellectual properties, compliance and risk-related advice to all company functions and units. Frederick had experience working as front line staff and understood their difficulties in explaining legal terms to customers. Therefore, after joining Canon HK in 2013, apart from providing professional legal support, Frederick has designed and provided a new training programme for the front line staff by using a relaxed way to explain the product warranty or service terms. He has also broken away from the traditional cold image of a lawyer but instead adopting a friendly interactive approach during the provision of his professional internal support.
“Management team supports our staffs for the award in every way and the awards are definitely huge encouragements to us. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to our service teams, who have been making their greatest effort in satisfying our customers ranging from consumers to corporate clients. Looking forwards, we will continue to put customers at the centre of everything the company does, with our belief that the only way to delight our customers always is to grow from strength to strength with even better new services ahead.” Mr. Shunichi Morinaga, President & CEO of Canon HK, shared his remarks.
