Raymond Chin, MBE:
The visionary and engine behind CHM Group is the founder’s youngest son, now the Group’s Managing Director, Raymond Chin. Raymond has always been known for his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for music. A pioneer of the music industry in PNG, he was the first to set up and establish the country’s very first recording studio and music label in 1980. Due to his outstanding contribution to the development of the music industry, Raymond was awarded the MBE (Member of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth II through the Governor General of PNG on May 8th 2003.
Grace is the wife and business partner of Raymond and is the CHM Group Director and Secretary. If Raymond is the engine of CHM Group, then Grace is certainly the heart of the company that drives the business forward. She handles the financial affairs, operations and strategic planning of the group. She joined CHM in 1975 and has been a strong part of the solid and successful growth and expansion of the company for nearly four decades.
