I am the former Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Fortress Hill Holdings (FHH), a small venture capital firm specialising in Asian media.
What do you see as the biggest changes in your industry?
Media in Asia has grown in popularity and continues to do so. This is good for the consumer and for those of us who have invested in it.
Some of the new consumers of Asian media come from areas and social levels previously untapped by media producers. Recent increases in the wealth of nations like India have widened the scope of our market dramatically, combining with population growth to make for a flourishing industry.
How will these changes impact the public?
The spread of media is the spread of culture. Some decry globalisation and suggest that eventually, greater proliferation of media devices such as televisions and smartphones could result in an overall loss of culture as each culture’s distinctiveness will be reduced.
Although I accept we can expect to see this to an extent, I think the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.
What are your biggest goals?
I am out of that industry now, but I would like to see my colleagues open up China sourcing and other places with censored internet. Recent changes in British law are also quite worrying.
Who and what do you need to reach your goals fast?
My colleagues will need technical and public support.
Who should contact you and why?
Anybody looking for partnerships in Hong Kong, Japan, Pakistan or England. Even if I am not in a position to work with that person myself, I may know someone who is.
