Andrew Chung established Compass Offices with the vision of creating a serviced office
provider that would revolutionise the industry by introducing transparency, innovative
solutions and by forging partnerships and genuine relationships with clients.
Since opening the first Compass Offices location in Hong Kong in December 2009,
Andrew has seen Compass Offices become the fastest-growing serviced office provider
in Asia, currently expanding at the rate of one new location every two months and is the
largest serviced office provider in Central, Hong Kong.
Andrew was born and educated in the United Kingdom, where he originally trained and
qualified as a Chartered Accountant before joining KPMG in Hong Kong.
He founded his own recruitment company, Wall Street Associates, in 1997, and it quickly
grew to become one of Asia's leading independent recruitment firms. In 2005, Andrew
sold Wall Street Associates Hong Kong to Talent2, owned by Andrew Banks and Geoff
Morgan, formerly of the recruitment firm Morgan & Banks.
Andrew is the founder and investor of a number of specialised recruitment companies
and as the Chairman of International Recruitment Investments, enjoys funding new
start-ups. In 1999, Andrew funded (and later sold) Wall Street Associates Japan, which
was founded and managed by Nicholas Johnston.

Always interested in Asia, he joined ConnectedGroup in 2001, a recruitment firm based in Hong Kong. He was quickly promoted to head of the firm's technology division.
In 2003, Lachlan joined Hong Kong recruitment firm Wall Street Associates, serving first as Chief Operating Officer and then as Chief Executive Officer.
In July 2007, Lachlan moved into the Managed Services business unit of Talent2 Asia.
