Hong Kong 30 Under 30 2015
Founder, Voltage PR
PR powerhouse Coco Chan has a Rolodex that reads like a who’s who of Hong Kong, thanks to her extensive experience in the industry.
After stints as a wardrobe stylist at TVB, PR agency A-Vibe, and later as a jewelry designer, the Hongkonger headed the public relations team at restaurant group Maximal Concepts, launching hotspots like Brickhouse and Blue Butcher as well as countless events.
In 2014, Chan established her own PR firm, Coco Alexandra PR, which has since re-branded as Voltage PR, as well as sister events planning agency Just Tuesdays the following year. Voltage has grown rapidly, representing some of the city’s hottest restaurants and boutique brands including Crafty Cow, Boomshack, Craft Beer & Co, Wildgrass, Shoku and more.
“My partner Dan Lun and I were working together at a mobile tech startup and the business went south,” she explains. “Afterwards, he encouraged me to start this venture with him. Now, here we are 19 months later.”
Her very first job? Chan worked at a tattoo and piercing parlor in LA where she was in charge of stencil placements.
