Mr. JOE LAM
Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Joe Lam is appointed CEO of SecureCom Media Holdings Limited on 01 November 2015. Born to an average family in Hong Kong, he studied hard in his younger days and moved to England where he obtained his bachelors and subsequently master’s degree in industrial design from the Coventry University of London in 2002.
Being an enthusiast of sorts, Joe’s first few career years were spent in the services line, where his passion for creation and entrepreneurship led up to the opening of several restaurants in the UK region. The restaurants serve creatively crafted fusion dishes, bringing together the best of eastern and western culinary techniques. Years of building the business helped toned his acumen for business sharp sense of customer needs, which later proved to be invaluable.
Joe returned from England in 2009, and having made his first success in the line of food and beverage, decided to take on a new challenge. His passion for industrial design and creativity, particularly for the IT sector, was a dream he craved realization. Seeing the stark growth of the technological infrastructure of Asian countries over the past decade, he decided with almost no second thoughts to take a leap of faith into the Asian IT sector.
Opportunity landed and Joe was recruited into a Chinese company based in Beijing, which was at that time leading the way in the development of integrated computers (the combination of CPU, speakers and monitors into a single entity) in the Chinese market. Joe’s role as the Project Manager was to see to the completion of the development. He was subsequently promoted to Associate Director and continued to assist the CEO in eventually selling the technology to Chinese Tech Giants such as Lenovo and Aigo.
2 years in the hardware business left Joe with a beautiful opener to the Asian Tech Market. But more importantly, it made him realize the days of a hardware dominant market were coming to an end, and the software market, driven by the speedy improvements to smartphones and connectivity, would eventually open a whole new frontier in the region.
Joe decided to apply his project management skills and creativity to the development of software, and founded a software firm with two other friends， developing custom made management systems for hospitals, finance companies, education firms and even online casinos. For the next 3 years as Managing Director, Joe successfully grew the company to a 50-man team with annual turnover of more than 10 million USD.
Bringing with his extensive experience in business, his corporate networks in London and his experience from in the IT industry of Asia, Joe now focuses his efforts on the future strategy and growth of SCM, to place the company amongst the midst of other Asian industry makers.
