Key exec changes at HK Airport Authority


While the issue of Hong Kong International Airport’s third runway is coming to a boil, the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has undergone a major restructuring. The Authority has appointed incumbent Board member Vincent Lo Hong-sui as chairman for one year with effect from 1 June 2014.

Lo, who is also chairman of the Shui On group, took over the post after the previous chairman Marvin Cheung Kin-tung announced that he wanted to retire for personal reasons upon completion of his current term on 31 May 2014. Last year, the government had announced the extension of Cheung’s chairmanship for one year with effect from 1 June 2014.

It also had also announced that Hong Kong Trade Development Council’s chairman Jack So Chak-kwong would succeed Cheung as chairman of the AAHK for three years with effect from 1 June 2015, with Lo acting as chairman in the interim period.

Also appointed to the management team is Fred Lam Tin-fuk as chief executive officer, succeeding the incumbent Stanley Hui Hon-chung, effective 1 October 2014 for a term of three years.

During the transitional phase after Hui departs in mid- July and before Lam assumes the role, Ng Chi-kee, currently executive director, Airport Operations, will oversee the AAHK in the capacity of acting CEO.
