Like so many before her, happenstance drew Catherine Granger to expand her business to Hong Kong. The British-born serial entrepreneur is the founder and Managing Partner of three companies, including the Dubai-based business advisory Trajan consulting. Last October, the company opened a Hong Kong branch and Ms Granger plans to use the city as a springboard to further regional expansion.Her introduction to Hong Kong had come just a few months earlier.“I’d been asked by a client – Thomas Knudsen, CEO of Damco Asia (part of the Maersk group) – to come to Hong Kong and help make his warehousing activities more efficient,” Ms Granger explained. “Whilst my team and I were in Hong Kong, we received more enquiries from other major players, especially in the supply chain arena (container terminals through to delivery of goods). Thomas provided us with very positive feedback and offered to be a reference to Trajan consulting for further work.” Thus the wheels of expansion were set in motion.During her initial time in the city, Ms Granger “was amazed at the capability in Hong Kong” and fell in love with the people.
