Razack is a businessman and former chief executive of the Land Development Corporation (now Urban Renewal Authority).[1] He is a director of numerous large corporates, including China Resources Cement Holdings Ltd.[2]

Political stanceEdit

Long a staunch pro-Beijing supporter of the Hong Kong Government, Shek surprised observers in October 2019 by siding with protestors in calling for an independent inquiry into police suppression of the then widespread pro-democracy protests, and in criticising the government's failure to recognise the need to address community concerns, particularly those among youth.[3]
