Founder & CEO
Owlsome Group represents a real passion project for accomplished business mind Tony Tiong. During his fast-paced, high-level career, he has enjoyed success across a range of industries, leaving his mark on the worlds of mining, real estate, and even toll roads. His education and work has taken him to countries all over the world, and now it’s his mission to provide innovative and unique lifestyle experiences on a global scale. Innovation and creativity are two of the key values that guide his approach, but ultimately he sees Owlsome as an opportunity to spread joy. And couldn’t we all use a little more of that?
James first joined the team to lead investment and strategy, but he’s a man of many skills and much knowledge. Now, he oversees Owlsome’s food and beverage operations as well as brand expansion and development. Before he joined the group, he received his Master of Engineering degree with Honors from Imperial College, London. Engineers are notoriously curious, creative, and critical, and James is no exception to the rule. Owlsome benefits from his vast experience in finance, mergers and acquisitions, business consulting, and investing in food and beverage-based initiatives.
Sijia has over 16 years of experience in the legal field, and she cut her teeth in the multinational business environment before joining Owlsome. Having graduated from the University of Melbourne, you’ll now find her busy with a wide spectrum of important legal and administrative matters. That may sound like heavy work to you and I, but she describes it as a fun and energetic experience, thanks to Owlsome’s uniquely awesome corporate culture. Fun and energetic are also good words to describe Sijia herself, who enjoys swimming, hiking, running, and horse-riding in her free time.
For Min, being part of Owlsome is a blissful experience. That’s because it combines so many things he’s passionate about! Not only can he apply his business skills -- he has over 20 years of experience in corporate finance, direct investment and management consulting -- but he can also share and celebrate his love of food. That’s right; Min is a major foodie at heart, and he’s especially inspired by South East Asian and East Asian cuisines. What excites him is the prospect of pairing new and innovative beverages with his favourite dishes, and we’ve found that his personality is the perfect complement to the Owlsome team!
Director - Head of Strategy
Ok, we all love good food and drink, but Tim really, REALLY loves good food and drink. Our resident Canadian has spent the last ten years in Asia developing award-winning restaurants as well as beer and spirits brands. If anyone has his finger on the pulse of drinking and dining trends worldwide, it’s Tim, so he’s an invaluable addition to the Owlsome team. His focus is on using innovation to make a global impact. That’s why he’s so excited for Owlsome to blow minds in Hong Kong and beyond. With his visionary approach inspiring the team, you can expect us to bring culinary excellence and the very best in beverages.
General Manager of Carbon Brews
Chris Wong was one of the innovators that started the Hong Kong craft beer movement. Since he’s been there from the beginning, Chris is considered the team’s brewing guru. Career highlights include starting the city’s first homebrew shop and building a 6000HL capacity brewery on behalf of Owlsome Group, but he’s just getting started. Alongside his general manager duties at Owlsome, Chris is also the co-founder and head brewer of Heroes Beer Co and a co-owner of the city’s finest tap rooms. Basically, if you’ve ever had a great beer in Hong Kong, you probably have Chris Wong to thank.
Digital Marketing Manager
Felix is a self-taught online “cool geek” that has turned his social media obsession into a successful digital marketing career. If you meet him at a party, expect to talk about all things tech, cryptomining, and the Internet of Things. His start in business came early when he began his own ecommerce initiative, selling car parts as he studied. It certainly gave his career a jump start! Now, he runs two YouTube channels and social media communities that total over 40k followers. You’re likely to find him on the basketball court when he’s not dominating the digital space and spreading the world about Owlsome activities.
Eric is the finance guy at Owlsome, so he’s responsible for keeping the money pouring in and the beer flowing out. Accounting, treasury, risk management… Eric’s the guy to take care of it all. Sure, it’s a big job, but he definitely has the experience to handle it: 25 years of experience, in fact. Before he joined our team, Eric could be found rocking senior positions in a range of multinational companies. From time to time, he also holds a can of Carbon Brews beer!
