Michael Kuan, Co-Founder

Marketing Director


Prior to becoming a partner of Elite in 2007, Mr. Michael Kuan worked in multinational corporations and small & medium enterprises. Helming marketing and training portfolios with more than 20 years of working experience, he would many times spearhead and manage successful marketing campaigns for mainly the banking and finance industry and other fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) markets. With his training portfolio, Michael enjoys coaching fellow marketers to craft appealing marketing communications and assists in implementing successful marketing strategies.


As the marketing director of Elite, Michael’s curiosity in using the Internet as a powerful marketing medium has helped built Elite to become a strong brand and a reputable language service company. His goal of using his strengths to overcome his physical disabilities is evident through his ‘can do’ attitudes and strong determination to assist others to be on the path of success as well. His hopes are that Elite can continue to grow to aid businesses and companies to convey meaningful messages through their multilingual communications strategy.


Words from Michael


“To me, being physically disabled means achieving the same or even more with lesser resources. I strongly believe in the power of great attitude. This belief has been my personal yardstick that would measure who I am, where I am and where I can be. This is the same for everything we do in Elite. With Clarity in what we want, the understanding the Context of our operating environment and a collective Conviction to push towards our goals, we then have a great compass that would serve us well through the good times and the bad times.”

Kathy Xia

Operations Manager


After graduating from the National University of Defense Technology, China in 2007, Kathy continued to further her studies overseas, and obtained Master of International Business in Grenoble Graduate School of Business, France.


Kathy loved languages since she was very young. Born a native Chinese speaker, Kathy started to learn the English language since primary school. Through six years of learning English in the Yale-China High School, Kathy successfully entered University and majored in Trade English. The University also provided her with a good foundation to learn about English literature.


Believing that the best way to understand a language was to be addicted to a language, Kathy enjoyed mastering languages. That is why she also embarked on learning French as a third language, and eventually chose a French School for her Master education.


Upon completion of her studies, Kathy joined ELITE ASIA in 2009 as a Project Executive. Putting fervor and passion into the projects, one could see Kathy's tenacity and enjoyment in her work. She was promoted to Operations Manager in 2010, exactly a year since she worked for ELITE ASIA. Her business acumen will definitely bring ELITE ASIA to greater heights.
