New World's New Face
Developer heir Adrian Cheng looks to make his mark in China's retail sector. Will the economic downturn spoil his fun?

16 February 2009
Forbes Asia

On the top floor of New World Development's 32-story headquarters in downtown Hong Kong are members of three generations of the powerful Cheng family. Patriarch Cheng Yu-tung, 83, and his son Henry, 61, who run the $3.8 billion (sales) property developer, sit next to each other in offices off a traditional wood-and-marble hallway.

Down the hall, where marble gives way to gray carpeting, is a starkly contemporary office, decorated with bright modern Vietnamese art, family photos and a large LCD TV, tuned to daily financial news. It is a fitting setting for Cheng's eldest grandchild and Henry's son Adrian, 29, a Harvard University graduate who joined the company three years ago and a year later became New World's youngest board member by more than two decades.

Adrian's easy rise is a far cry from his grandfather's experience. The elder Cheng fled China in a boat during World War II and got his start in Macau as a clerk in the jewelry store. Cheng eventually married the store owner's daughter and helped him build Hong Kong's biggest jewelry chain, before eventually making a fortune in real estate development.

But like his billionaire grandfather, Adrian has chosen retail as his proving ground. Today retail is a small part of New World's sprawling interests, which include residential properties, hotels, roads, water treatment plants and mobile phones; the department store division represents 5.5% of the group's sales and just under 5% of net profits. Adrian predicts it will contribute 20% of group profits in as soon as five years. "Retail is a relatively young business for the group and has great potential," says father Henry Cheng, "I have full confidence in Adrian." It is also an area that complements the existing real estate businesses. A third of the department stores are situated in buildings owned by New World Development or its subsidiary, New World China Land.

While Adrian is investing in other retailers and designing a new mall from scratch, most of the retail growth is expected to come from the company's 75%-owned New World Department Store China. The group owns or manages 33 department stores in China, up from 15 when Adrian joined. Adrian, who worked at investment banks Goldman Sachs and UBS for four years, helped bring the subsidiary public in July 2007, raising $300 million for expansion. The company went on to have a stellar fiscal year, which ended June 2008, posting sales and earnings gains of 42% and 57%, respectively, enough for the $190 million (sales) retailer to debut on forbes asia's list of Best Under a Billion companies.

It won't be easy to keep up the performance. Already the department store's stock has dropped three-fourths from its January 2008 high. His family's other holdings, from flagship New World to casino firm SJM, are faring just as poorly, pushing down his grandfather's fortune to $3.8 billion from $9.4 billion last year, still enough to rank him No. 6 among Hong Kong's 40 Richest.

Driving the retail stock down are concerns about consumer spending and just how much it will rise in this economic environment. Competition is also heating up as international retailers, desperate to find bright spots outside of the U.S. and Europe, push ahead with expansion plans in China. Carrefour says it plans to open between 20 and 25 stores on the mainland this year, on pace with last year. Malaysia's Parkson Retail Group announced in January that it was spending $170 million to buy a department store in Beijing. Lifestyle International Holdings, in which the Cheng family also has a stake, is planning to open new stores in Tianjin and Shenyang.

Adrian remains optimistic, arguing that there is plenty of opportunity for better-managed, better-designed stores in China's fragmented retail industry. He expects the Chinese government to offset any drop in consumer spending, pointing to recent moves to cut interest rates and taxes for first-time home buyers.

Making it easier for him to be confident is the fact that his family has given him a long leash. "We are giving Adrian a lot of room," says Cheng Yu-tung, who nevertheless shares his wisdom with his grandson. "The third generation has more advantages than other youth, because they have longer and more frequent contact with their elders and can better understand how to do business."

Sidebar: Old New World

In the department store business, which his father chairs, Adrian, an executive director, works closely with the veteran Philip Cheung, the group's managing director. "I handle the day-to-day, while Adrian works on the larger market strategy," say Cheung. That means lots of freedom to try new ideas. So far Adrian has helped to develop a private-label lingerie line; instituted 36-hour "nonstop" sales that start at 3 a.m.; created an "event hall," in which an entire floor is filled with special promotions; and helped roll out 60 new brands. He also wants to extend the retailer's successful customer loyalty program by letting its 1.3 million members use their vip cards at other New World businesses, including its hotels and the family's private jewelry chain, Chow Tai Fook.

There are even more changes afoot, intended to better differentiate its stores from rivals', particularly Parkson, controlled by Malaysian tycoon William H. J. Cheng. One of China's biggest department store chains, with 44 locations, Parkson's stock trades at a premium to that of New World's. Starting in March, New World will redesign about half of its existing stores as "living galleries" that resemble minimalls, with restaurants and lounge areas. The rest will be smaller "fashion galleries" that sell a wider range of prices and feature new designers not yet picked up by other stores. "We don't want to overlap with competitors like Parkson," says Rebecca Woo, a 15-year-veteran of New World's retail operations.

Not to be confused with those so-called galleries is K11, a new luxury mall conceived by Adrian to double as a large art gallery, which will operate under New World Development. "In Hong Kong, there are a lot of malls that have art. But those are decorative, minor and functionary," Adrian says. An art buff who hangs his own painting in his office, he plans to hire a curator and personally get involved in selecting works of new artists to display. The first of these "art malls," developed in conjunction with Hong Kong's Urban Renewal Authority, is slated to open in the city. Three more K11 malls are planned for Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan.

There are still other initiatives that Adrian is juggling. As head of New World Strategic Investments, the conglomerate's private equity arm set up in August 2007, he is in charge of investing up to $1.2 billion in the next seven years. So far his group has picked up stakes in Chinese mining outfit Xinxin Mining Industry; Well Metro group, a subsidiary of Hembly international holdings, which distributes such brands as Siley, Lotto and Moschino in China; and underground mall developer Renhe Commercial Holdings. The latter was one of the only companies to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange last fall, ten months after New World's investment, but it raised $435 million, well below the $1 billion-plus it had originally sought.

The grandson also worked closely with his grandfather this fall on a deal in which Chow Tai Fook snapped up the watch business of distressed Hong Kong retailer Peace Mark, grabbing more than 1,000 stores and two factories, as well as assuming some debt.

So what has Adrian learned so far from the wealthy octogenarian down the hall? "You can't get too far away from what made the business successful," Adrian says, "but you have to update the ideas for a new era."

A new retail experience in HK World's first art mall will combine a gallery and shopping centre, giving customers exciting options
21 March 2009
South China Morning Post

Located at the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, the new K11 shopping complex on Hanoi Road is expected to give Hong Kong a completely different kind of retail experience.

Conceived as the world's first art mall, the joint venture between New World Development and the Urban Renewal Authority will feature permanent and regular art exhibitions, providing a new range of attractions for shoppers, restaurant goers and international visitors.

"It is a combination of a gallery and a shopping centre, which aims to offer customers an exciting mixture of art, shopping and dining options," said Adrian Cheng, founder and chairman of K11 and an executive director of New World Development.

The artworks on display will include paintings and sculptures, multimedia arts and interactive installations. Some will be showcased at strategic points throughout the public areas, while others will be short-term exhibits contributed by local arts students and designers.

"There will be artworks to admire alongside the shop-window displays," Mr Cheng said. "We want to bring art into the shopping experience and create an art walk within the mall." To enhance that theme, original items are being commissioned from local artists. The company also intends to set up a K11 Artists' Club, which will give students a chance to exhibit.

The six-storey, 340,000 sqft complex will have flagship stores, brand-name outlets new to Hong Kong, and a nearby Gourmet Tower with more than 20 restaurants offering international cuisines.

With the grand opening planned for the fourth quarter of this year, K11 is starting to hire the first of an expected 130 new employees. A recruitment day is scheduled for March 29.

"We are looking for employees who will be able to identify with the brand and have the ability to help us cultivate a new retail generation in Hong Kong," Mr Cheng said. "New hires should be open-minded, energetic, able to deliver great service, and interested in new concepts."

K11 will need to fill a range of positions. There will be openings for management trainees, marketing officers, technical engineers, property officers and security guards.

Ideally, anyone interested in applying for a role as a management trainee should have a bachelor's degree in hospitality, marketing, accounting, finance or a business-related subject. It is essential to be proficient in written and spoken English and Chinese, while a high standard in spoken Putonghua will be a definite advantage.

All those taken on as management trainees will undergo an extensive two-year training programme. This will move from orientation about the company and its main service features to cross-departmental attachments and the development of skills necessary for management. The aim is to give trainees an all-round understanding of the company's operations and to prepare them to support the business and steadily assume larger responsibilities.

"During the training period, management trainees will be rotated to various departments to gain a 360-degree understanding of the business," Mr Cheng said. "

After that, we will assign trainees to a department, which we consider most suitable for them, based on their potential and interests. They will be able to build their career in K11 and with New World Development, and will have every chance to move up to senior management positions."

The company prefers to take on candidates for marketing officers who have a marketing-related degree, and at least two to three years of relevant work experience.

"We hope new hires will be innovative, organised and pay attention to detail," Mr Cheng said. "They also need to be the good team players with strong communication and interpersonal skills." In considering potential property officers, K11 will be looking for people who have worked in the field for about five years and have supervisory experience. Candidates whose background includes some time spent in managing shopping malls or commercial buildings will have an advantage.

"For us, employees are the most valuable asset," Mr Cheng said. "And, with our comprehensive performance appraisal mechanism, we can provide a clearly structured career path for them." He noted that the name K11 was not meant to be deliberately enigmatic. If anything, the choice was intended to give shoppers a chance to come up with an interpretation of their own.

"Different people will have different understandings," Mr Cheng said. "We would like to have more interaction with our customers and hear what they think. After all, we don't want to restrain the character of K11. It should have its own personality."

Course aims to cultivate leaders
21 March 2009
South China Morning Post

The K11 shopping arcade is scheduled to open in the final quarter of this year, but the company behind it has already taken steps to ensure an exceptionally high level of management.

New World Development, which has undertaken the K11 project together with the Urban Renewal Authority, has launched a special training programme, in co-operation with the Richard Ivey School of Business, to give executives all the skills they need to run one of Hong Kong's most attractive shopping and leisure destinations.

The objective of the New World Star Executive Development Programme is to offer wide-ranging instruction with a practical approach. It aims to cultivate leaders who can initiate and direct change, and to give people the training needed to handle new challenges with confidence, authority and real professionalism.

"The programme's main target is to equip senior management with the skills to take up leading roles with the company," said Adrian Cheng, the founder and chairman of K11 and an executive director of New World Development.

"The content of courses focuses on strengthening the participants' drive to lead change and on enhancing their management skills. Another important aspect is to encourage the sharing of best practices."

The programme includes 19 full-day sessions which will be spread over a period of 15 months or so. During this period, distinct courses cover leadership and change management, executive communication and presentation skills, and leading high performance teams. There will also be classes on strategic analysis and action, negotiating to succeed, strategic marketing planning, and managing financial performance and resources.

The company also has plans to recruit about 130 staff in the months ahead. Depending on their precise roles, K11 will provide training that is job-specific and wide-ranging. It will include language courses, computer skills, occupational health and safety, personal grooming, and successive stages of management development.
