HONG KONG, April 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- City Telecom (H.K.) Limited (HKSE:1137) (Nasdaq:CTEL) and wholly owned subsidiary Hong Kong Broadband Network launched our "CXO of the Future" Management Trainee Program earlier this year and received 1,153 applications from 153 universities around the World. These applicants were then put through an exhaustive 2-month selection process, climaxing with a 36-hour Outward Bound Live-in Program where candidates were challenged with corporate simulation scenarios under extreme physical and mental conditions. We finally chose two elites to join our 10-year Big Hairy Audacious Goal to become the largest IP service provider in Hong Kong by 2016.

Mr. William Yeung, CEO, said, "Beyond the HK$36,000/month starting pay, which is competitive with graduate offers from the elite Government administrative officer (AO) track, global investment banks and leading management consulting firms, over the next decade, we will invest a huge amount of current generation CXOs management capital to nurture these two candidates into our future CXOs. This is why we put so much time, effort and resources into the selection process."
