CATHAY Pacific has appointed Mandy Ng as the new CEO of HK Express with immediate effect, taking over from Roland Lam.
Mr Lam was recently appointed Cathay's chief customer and commercial officer following the resignations of Paul Loo and CEO Rupert Hogg August 16 in the aftermath of anti-government protests at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).
Mr Lam, who also will assume the chairmanship of HK Express, said: 'Over the past month, we have worked closely with the team at HK Express following its acquisition by Cathay Pacific, and have achieved a smooth transition while also laying down a solid transformation plan to make HK Express better and stronger moving forward. Our commitment towards HK Express operating as a stand-alone low-cost airline remains unchanged.
'Ensuring continuity in HK Express' business direction is of paramount importance. Mandy has worked with me both on the acquisition of HK Express and during the transitional process. She has played a key role in ensuring the smooth transition for the airline and the Cathay Pacific Group. Mandy and I will work closely together to lead HK Express into an exciting future for our people and our customers.'
Ms Ng is a veteran of the airline business, having spent 17 years with Cathay Pacific and has held a variety of positions involving planning, revenue and sales in Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia.
Before joining HK Express, Ms Ng was the general manager business development at Swire Pacific, and before that, the director and general manager of Akzonobel Swire Paints Hong Kong.
