Statement of personal introduction (Mr. HUANG Robin Mark Garvey)
I am from Class of 1985, starting as a P.1 student in LSPS. After university in UK, I returned to HK and worked in various professional firms, banks and multinational corporates, with a focus on corporate procurement and process reengineering. I have recently formed my own company to offer consulting and corporate training services, as well as executive coaching.
La Salle in an integral part of my life. I always look for ways to serve my alma mater and her students, either in official capacities like serving in school committees, in advisory roles or in the OBA, or just chatting with students, teachers and Brothers, to seeing what I can do to help make La Salle better.
I served in the OBA Committee for many years, and was honoured to become President from 2010 to 2012, where I introduced many new initiatives. Concurrently, I was appointed as a member of the then School Management Committee (SMC), offering suggestions and opinions to the SMC on various school matters. I also embarked on a detailed research into La Salle’s history for over 10 years, and discovered a significant amount of previously unrecorded school information. In 2007, on behalf of the LSCOBA, I authored the school’s first definitive history book, “Sons of La Salle Everyone”, having sold over 4,000 copies.
Through my knowledge in La Salle history, I maintain good rapport with old boys from all generations, ranging from the school’s first students in 1932, to present university students. This unique network has given me insight into what Lasallian education truly means to different old boys, and what role La Salle plays in nurturing the next generation of Lasallian gentlemen.
With this strong network and my passion for the school, I hope to serve the school as an alumni manager.

Prior to that, he was the Associate Director in a global communications consultancy firm, leading projects with clients mainly from innovative & technology industry, consumer goods brands, as well as in the public sector.
After he graduated from law school in the University of Hong Kong, he started his career as an Administrative Officer in the HKSAR Government. During the seven years of his civil service, he took up several roles in various Bureaux/Departments and was responsible for a wide range of policy areas, including Planning & Lands, Home Affairs, Security, Commerce & Economic Development, Mainland Affairs and Tourism. With his experience in public administration and communications, he hopes to offer additional insights with practical and valuable advice to the school management.
In La Salle College, Kennon was captain of the Chinese Debating Team, and Vice-chairman of the Clubs Coordinating Board, Student Association. He was also active in the Editorial Board and Speech Team. For years after graduation, he has been committed in training and nurturing si-dais in the Debating Team. Through these, he has built trust and rapport with Lasallians from different generations. By participating in the Alumni Manager Election for the Incorporated Management Committee (IMC) of the College, he hopes to bring in the voices of Old Boys from all walks of life into the IMC.
