Dog-loving ex-banker becomes Cat Welfare Society CEO
Miss Joanne Ng quit her job as a banker specialising in the global market - a job that she had been holding for 15 years - to take up the CEO position.
Although she admits that the salary she earns now is just a fraction of what she used to get, Miss Ng said she wanted to do it for the community. CWS does not pay its board members and volunteers, so Miss Ng's salary is paid by the Patrick D Harrigan Foundation, following its pledge of support.
