Meet the Harbingers: Oliver Chin

Hello! I am Oliver, I joined Harbinger in May 2024 to help with finance and operations. I am looking forward to learning new skills and working with the Harbinger team.

What is your role at Harbinger?

I will be doing an inside job at Harbinger. Unfortunately, it will not be as exciting as the Charles Ferguson movie, but the change I intend will be positive. My role in finance and operations is to help make sure Harbinger stays organized and runs efficiently internally so we can provide the best service externally.

What are you most looking forward to in this role?

I am looking forward to working in an environment where I can grow and challenge myself. I am excited to work with the team here at Harbinger and make things efficient for them. I am looking forward to helping Harbinger be the best that it can be.

 What do you hope to accomplish in your time at Harbinger?

As mentioned earlier, I hope that I can clean-up, organize and allow my colleagues to work as efficiently as they can. I want to personally make sure that I learn a lot from working here at Harbinger and use this experience for positive personal growth.


Do you have any principles you live your life by?

To take things as they come. I believe that preparation is important, but I make sure when problems arise that I do not worry about them. Worrying will not fix anything, and I believe this mindset of viewing things objectively and rationally has helped me work through problems efficiently and more effectively.


What makes you tick?

I enjoy the little things in life. The small things like when you step outside to good weather, a refreshing drink, the smell of coffee in the morning. It is the little things I find appreciation in, which add up over time, helping me stay on track and motivated for the bigger picture items in life.


What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I like to play football (soccer). Ever since I was young, I have been kicking a ball around and I just love running around, being outside and playing the beautiful game. I also enjoy watching football, but that enjoyment has slowly been waning with the poor performances of my favourite team lately. Other than football, I like to read, spend time with friends and explore new places.


Any recommendations on places to eat in Toronto?

Coming from Singapore I have relatively high expectations for Chinese food. However, King’s Noodle on Spadina has some of the best Wonton Mee (noodles) around. The other dishes are good too, but their Wonton Mee is comparable if not better than a lot of the one’s I have tried back in Singapore.
