Kevin Cheung’s beginning as a graduate in Aviation operations management started him off on a career in data analysis and management consulting. With a passion in helping clients solve their business problems and grow their businesses, Kevin decided to join the international renowned management consulting firm, Andersen Consulting (now rebranded to Accenture) where he worked with multinational companies across Asia Pacific on major business transformation programs. For the next seven years, Kevin looked after clients across Asia, working on business planning, system implementation and strategic management projects. Kevin then joined QBE Insurance in Australia working as the Strategy Manager in the office of COO and CEO. His mandate was to develop and manage QBE’s strategic program, allowing the company to grow organically over a 5 year period. He later took on the role as Head of Planning and Governance, Strategy and Technology for a further three years, overseeing QBE’s Australian business planning and governance functions. Leveraging his strong business acumen and corporate experience, Kevin’s entrepreneurial spirit sees him realising his vision to build a diversified company in sourcing, consulting and investment. The sourcing business focuses on import, export and distribution of successful brands from Asia into Australia and New Zealand markets, and vice versa. The consulting arm builds on Kevin’s experience and credibility in the corporate and management consulting field. And the investment arm enables the company to nurture and form new business partnerships. This is UNIKC Group. We believe we are best placed to universally connect business relationships and opportunities.
