The family link of Arnhold Holdings chairman Michael Green with Hong Kong and China spans every decade of the 20th Century. His father was born in Hong Kong in 1907 and he was born in Shanghai in 1939. In 1941 he was interned by the Japanese in the Philippines with his mother. His father was interned in Manchuria. In 1946 he was rescued by US forces and sent to Australia, returning to Shanghai in 1947. In 1949 he moved to Hong Kong, to attend King George V School and in 1962 qualified as an electrical engineer from McGill University, Montreal, returning to Hong Kong to join Arnhold & Co, a family owned business, which is now publicly listed. Since then, Mr Green has worked to develop the business of Arnhold & Co, holding the post of chairman and main shareholder when Arnhold Holdings publicly listed in December 1993 on the Hong Kong exchange. The business has an emphasis on China - where the group has four liaison offices - but remains focused on Hong Kong. Mr Green is married to Judith Leslie Green and has four children. He is a member of several engineering associations and has long been active in community work for the Jewish Community of Hong Kong. On the passing of Lord Lawrence Kadoorie, Mr Green was appointed chairman of the Incorporated Trustees of the Jewish Community of Hong Kong in October 1993.
