Former Cable & Wireless HKT deputy chief executive Norman Yuen Kee-tong has been named as Richard Li Tzar-kai's second in charge after completion of the Pacific Century CyberWorks merger. Mr Yuen, who was HKT chief executive Linus Cheung Wing-lam's right-hand man, has been appointed as deputy chief executive of the merged entity. He has also been put in charge of CyberWorks' Net Enterprises - the merged entity's broadband Internet and Internet investment arm. 'I would say Norman Yuen has definitely been promoted,' said an analyst at GK Goh Research. 'Net Enterprises is the main drive of the company.' Of three business units, Net Enterprises is the one to which Mr Li pays most attention. The unit includes the multimedia interactive service Network of the World (NOW), a business with which Mr Li is personally involved. Mr Yuen will also oversee CyberWorks' broadband business-to-business and business-to-consumer services, data-centre services and the Internet investment arm, CyberWorks Ventures. Mr Yuen's former boss, Mr Cheung, has been appointed as a deputy chairman of CyberWorks. Together with Francis Yuen Tin-fan and Peter To - who were CyberWorks' deputy chairmen before the merger - there are three deputies in the merged entity. Norman Yuen and Mr Cheung are members of the executive committee, where all big decisions are made. As expected, Mr Li's two key staff members - Francis Yuen and group managing director Alexander Arena - are also members of the executive committee. Analysts said they had been told by Mr Li that the formation of an executive committee to deal with major decisions had been borrowed from Hutchison Whampoa's management structure. It would speed up decision-making. Mr Cheung has not been put in charge of any of the three business units of the merged entity. Some analysts view this as a demotion. 'There are two key people at CyberWorks, Norman Yuen in charge of management and Richard Li in charge of decisions,' an analyst said. Mr Cheung said he saw himself taking up different roles in a much bigger and globalised company. Mr Li said as a member of the executive committee, Mr Cheung would be involved in the company's main decisions. Mr Li said: '[Mr Cheung was at] HKT throughout the merger process. We see him with super skills in mergers and acquisitions . . . so he will continue to do that, especially in the global arena.'
