CK Hutchison Holdings launches new CKH Innovations Opportunities Development division

13 December 2018, Hong Kong — CK Hutchison Holdings Limited (“CKH” or “CK Hutchison”) today launches a new global entity called CKH Innovations Opportunities Development.

This new venture will maximise cross border digital success and data analytics for CK Hutchison, acting as an international development hub across its global business units. Customers will benefit from world leading data and network solutions, leveraging the group’s extensive assets.

The new unit will champion bold, mould-breaking products and services, rooted in the digital world. It is built on the digital transformation of the group as it moves towards a more streamlined, cost-effective future with potential for new revenue streams in multiple sectors, including online gaming and IoT.

Responding to the explosion in IoT devices and services and the corresponding connectivity needs, CKH Innovations Opportunities Development will offer IoT and MVNO services as part of its Wholesale & Enterprise function. These capabilities will be expanded to further facilitate cross-border business opportunities and optimise inter-CKH company collaboration, both within Telco and into other CKH industries, including Infrastructure, Ports and Retail; the latest example being the launch of innovative new IoT services in the European market.

CKH Innovations Opportunities Development is comprised of multiple areas in addition to Wholesale & Enterprise. These are:

  • Data Analytics and Management – utilising data and insights from across CKH (including Telecoms, Infrastructure, Retail, Ports) to provide design-led and innovative solutions to customers.
  • Digital Consumer Products Development – identifying, developing and delivering winning global consumer products, appropriate for each market.
  • Technology & Market Intelligence – identifying & communicating technological, market & consumer insights and their implications.
  • International Roaming – centralising the international roaming and interconnect business of CKH’s mobile operators to drive efficiency and improved QoS.

“The launch of the new division strengthens CK Hutchison’s market positioning as one of the leading global telecoms providers” said Susan Buttsworth, CEO, CKH Innovations Opportunities Development.

The company will be headquartered in London, with staff operating across key global locations. The website address is
