Pearl Poon and Louisa Cheng Dick­son Poon, group ex­ec­u­tive chair­man of the Dick­son Group of Com­pa­nies, was re­cently con­ferred the ti­tle of Knight Bach­e­lor on the Queen’s New Year Honours List in recog­ni­tion of his con­tri­bu­tion to the in­ter­na­tional busi­ness com­mu­nity, and for his sup­port of char­i­ta­ble causes and higher ed­u­ca­tion. To cel­e­brate this ac­knowl­ege­ment, a cock­tail party was held at the res­i­dence of the Bri­tish Con­sul- Gen­eral to Hong Kong and Ma­cau, Caro­line Wil­son, for Poon’s fam­ily, close friends, and busi­ness as­so­ciates. Poon told the gath­er­ing of about 50 peo­ple he was “very hon­oured to be ap­pointed this ti­tle by Her Majesty the Queen—and to be the only Knight Bach­e­lor of Chi­nese de­scent on the list this year.” Among those present to toast Poon were Ron­ald Ar­culli, Sally Le­ung, Marie- Christine Lee and Brian Li.
