10 Mar 2022

The year 2022 marks the 85th Anniversary of PolyU, and in celebration of this important milestone, the University has introduced the Outstanding PolyU Alumni Award (OPAA) to publicly recognise our distinguished alumni’s diverse accomplishments and contributions to the community and their alma mater. OPAA was conducted at three levels: Department level, Faculty/School level and University level with 4 achievement categories, namely “Professional Achievement”, “Entrepreneurial Achievement”, “Scholarly Achievement”, and “Community Service Achievement”.

We are glad to announce that Mr Andy Wan, Head of Transformation & Delivery, Chief Operating and Information Office of AXA Hong Kong and Macau, is the recipient of the Outstanding Alumni Award in “Professional Achievement” of PolyU Department of Computing.

Andy received a Higher Diploma in Information Systems in 2000 and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computing four years later, both from PolyU. Building his career from the ground up as an IT programmer, Andy has worked in two different Global Fortune 500 multi-national insurance companies. He has been dedicated to the wealth management and financial services industry for 20 years, with extensive experience across various domains, such as technology, operation, distribution, project management, digital and business transformation for the local and regional offices. Being a passionate leader with a strong inner drive, Andy’s distinguished achievements, exemplary leadership and professionalism have helped him gain a high reputation from the industry.

Apart from the active participation in our alumni activities, Andy also provided great support to the Department and PolyU, particularly in the COMP Mentorship Programme, in which he has served as the Mentor since 2020. Moreover, in the career talk, ‘Preparing to build a Professional Journey’, Andy shared his professional knowledge, leadership mindset and career journey with our students.
