TFCC confirms that Taipei 101 manager moving to Shanghai

Staff writer, with CNA

The chairwoman of Taipei Financial Center Corp (TFCC), which manages Taiwan’s landmark skyscraper Taipei 101, earlier this week confirmed 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 the second-tallest in the world.

“People have legs,” TFCC chairwoman Christina Song (宋文琪) said when asked for comment on a newspaper report on Monday that the Shanghai Tower operator had succeeded in recruiting Yang by offering her a salary that doubles her wage at TFCC.

Giving Yang her blessing at her new job, Song said talented people have the opportunity to work anywhere in the world.

“Taipei 101 also welcomes international talent to work in Taiwan,” she said. “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.

Yang was one of the founding members of the Taipei 101 management team. A management professional, she succeeded in raising the lease rate of office units in the 508m-tall skyscraper from between 50 and 60 percent in the first few years of the building’s commercial run to the current 97 percent, the United Daily News said.
