Taipei, June 8 (CNA) The chairwoman of Taipei Financial Center Corp. (TFCC), which manages Taiwan’s landmark skyscraper Taipei 101, confirmed Monday that Cathy Yang (楊文琪), the TFCC general manager responsible for the building’s operation, has been recruited to manage Shanghai Tower, the tallest building in China and second tallest in the world.
TFCC Chairwoman Christina Song (宋文琪) said “people have legs” when asked in response to a Monday newspaper report that the Shanghai Tower operator has succeeded in recruiting Yang by offering her a salary that doubles her wage at TFCC.
Giving her blessing on Yang’s new job, Song said talented people always have the opportunity to work anywhere in the world. “Taipei 101 also welcomes international talent to work in Taiwan,” she said, adding that “talent flows are part of a virtuous circle.”
Taipei 101 already has an established legal representative procedure, with no resulting gaps at any work level that could affect the company’s operations, Song said. [FULL STORY]
