Business and technology consultancy LanciaConsult has welcomed Hong Ngiap Lee to its team in Singapore. Ryan Chan meanwhile joins the firm’s Bristol office in the UK.

Global management and technology consultancy LanciaConsult has welcomed two new recruits to its ranks in Singapore and the UK, with former Deloitte senior consultant Hong Ngiap Lee joining Lancia’s Singapore headquarters and Ryan Chan crossing from Accenture to take up a Consultant role in the firm’s Bristol office. The new hires continue a positive recent recruitment trend at Lancia amidst the current global business disruption.  

A sociology graduate of the National University of Singapore, Lee joins Lancia as a Senior Consultant after the past three years at Deloitte Consulting in Singapore focused on a range of HR engagements, including HR strategy, operating models, organisation design and effectiveness, and process optimisation. Most recently, he participated in the workforce transition of the largest tech-enabled transformation of a global pharmaceutical multinational.

Prior to Deloitte, Lee spent a brief stint in the People Advisory Services practice at fellow Big Four firm EY, and after a series of earlier HR and business development internships initially kicked off his career with three years at Daimler. In addition to his honours degree, Lee recently gained Professional Scrum Master certification to enhance his agile and digital capabilities, and is currently undertaking an MBA with Imperial College Business School.

Meanwhile, Lancia’s Bristol office (one of now six globally, including further outlets in London, Edinburgh, Hamburg and Hong Kong) has welcomed Ryan Chan, who joins after a recent stint at Accenture in London.  A BSc.-holder in Business Administration from the University of Bath, Chan started out as a Customer Service Advocate at Verizon, before landing a Business Analyst placement at Accenture and later earning a consulting position with the firm.

During the past year and a half at Accenture, Chan has worked in the telecoms and aerospace sectors, including as a Change Management Analyst for a UK Aerospace client, gaining strong experience in requirements gathering and realising a client’s vision through deploying Agile teams both on and off-shore. A technology and User Experience enthusiast, he has also been involved in end-user training from field sales users through to C-suite clients.

“Both Ryan and Hong Ngiap join us at a time of exciting growth and opportunity for LanciaConsult, bringing with them fantastic experience from Accenture and Deloitte into our European and Asia teams,” said LanciaConsult co-founder and group managing director Jeff Cronkshaw. “We continue to attract and build the very best consulting talent around the globe and it’s great to see them both joining us on the same day in Singapore and the UK.”

Despite recent pressures on the consulting industry and business world at large, Lancia’s most recent signings continue a positive recruitment strategy at the firm since the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic. Last month, the firm made two key appointments to its senior leadership team, with Simon Williams coming on board a non-executive director and his predecessor Nic Norman-Smith moving into a commercial managing director role.
