Seattle, WA – November 4, 2020 – Kin On Board of Directors has appointed Min Chang as chief executive officer designate.
“After a rigorous, nationwide search, we are so fortunate to have found such an accomplished and talented leader for Kin On,” said Dennis Lam, Kin On Board President and Search Committee member. “We were immediately impressed by Min’s background and considerable leadership experience, and were further inspired by her vision and insights for Kin On’s future.”
Chang has 30 years of management and business leadership experience. Most recently, she spent 13 years with Omnicom Group, where she was president of Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa at Diversified Agency Services, the largest division of Omnicom Group from 2013-2020.
“Min brings a wealth of experience along with an exceptional combination of innovative thinking, proven leadership, and strategic vision to our organization,” said Hannah Wong, Kin On Board First Vice President. “This will be critical to building on Kin On’s proud 35-year legacy of serving our community.”
As a seasoned executive of a leading global marketing and corporate communications company, Chang was responsible for leveraging innovation and collaboration across its marketing agencies to provide fully integrated solutions to clients in the region, managing over $300 million in annual revenue. During her tenure at Omnicom Group, she led operational effectiveness and efficiency initiatives across its 170 agencies globally and developed strategies and business plans around client relationships.
“I’m extremely excited and grateful to be leading Kin On and look forward to collaborating with the Board, the leadership team, the organization, and the broader community,” said Chang. “Kin On has accomplished so much in the past 35 years and with the help of the community and our partners, we intend to broaden our services, footprint, and value to the Asian community.”
Chang will work alongside the current chief executive officer, Nigel Lo, for a transition period and assume the chief executive officer’s role on January 1, 2021.
“Min’s demonstrated leadership abilities and accomplishments make her the best-qualified candidate to lead and take Kin On to the next level,” said Lo, retiring CEO of Kin On. “She has chosen us as much as we have chosen her and I am confident that she will help the organization move forward with its mission.”
“I’m deeply grateful to Nigel for his leadership, vision, and dedication to Kin On during his tenure. Under his leadership, we have accomplished so much – including opening the Assisted Living facility and Adult Family Home, completing a major building upgrade to Kin On Rehab & Care Center, and maintaining high quality of care throughout the current pandemic. Equally, I am excited for what the future holds under Min’s leadership.” Lam said.
Chang has worked in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Prior to joining Omnicom Group, she led the procurement organization at Honeywell International and served as vice president of purchasing at AstraZeneca. She held various global leadership roles with three of the largest Fortune 500 companies: Procter & Gamble, American Express, and United Technologies. In addition, she has had more than a decade of management consulting expertise as a partner with Accenture and associate at Booz Allen & Hamilton and Ernst & Young.
