William Fung has been appointed executive deputy chairman. Victor Fung will step down as group chairman at the company's 2012 annual meeting, to be succeeded by William Fung Kowk.

He is also non-executive director of the Pure Group, a lifestyle, fitness and yoga firm operating in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and soon China. In 2010 and 2011, Barron's ranked Rockowitz as one of the world's 30 best ceos.
