Naming of Allen Shi Lop Tak Executive Classroom

Executive Classroom 6208 in Lau Ming Wai Academic Building at CityU has been named “Allen Shi Lop Tak Executive Classroom” in appreciation of the generous support of Dr Allen Shi Lop-tak, who is an alumnus of the EMBA programme.

A naming ceremony was held on 16th March, and officiated by Dr Shi and his family; Mr Lester Garson Huang, CityU Council Chairman; Professor Way Kuo, CityU President; and Professor Matthew Lee Kwok-on, Vice-President (Development and External Relations). The ceremony was attended by CityU senior management; Dr John Leung, the EMBA Programme Director, and friends of Dr Shi.

Mr Huang appreciated Dr Shi’s devotion to serving the community in his welcome remarks. In his address, Dr Shi said that the knowledge acquired during his two-year studies in the EMBA programme had helped him to further develop his business. “Contributing to my alma mater is the least I can do,” he said.

Dr Shi established Brilliant Printing Limited in 1985. He has transformed the company into one of the largest and most advanced manufacturers of commercial printing and paper packaging products in southern China over the past 30 years. He has donated generously to educational funds for the children of persons in custody and of correctional officers, and has sponsored students from remote areas to complete their university education.
