The Board of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) announced the appointment of Fred Lam Tin-fuk as CEO, succeeding Stanley Hui Hon-chung.
Lam has been unanimously endorsed by the AA Board and approved by the CEO of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and will take up his position from 1 October, 2014 for a term of three years.
During the transitional phase after Hui departs in mid-July and just before Lam assumes the new role, C K Ng, currently Executive Director, Airport Operations, will oversee AA as the acting CEO.
Welcoming Lam to the AA team, Vincent Lo Hong-sui, AA Chairman said: “As we are facing the imminent saturation of the two-runway system, and undertaking the critical tasks of planning and building the three-runway system and the North Commercial District, the AA needs to equip itself to tackle these challenges.
Fred Lam Tin-fuk will shortly take over as AAHK CEO.
‘THE RIGHT LEADER….’
“This is an important moment in HKIA’s development, and Mr Lam is the right leader to champion our plans and initiatives that will keep the airport competitive well into the future.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Hui for his contributions as the AA’s CEO, and for driving HKIA’s growth and development during a tenure that spanned the last seven years. Over this time, HKIA’s air traffic volumes and the AA’s financial performance achieved new heights year after year.
“Upon Mr Hui’s departure, the Board will continue to provide all the necessary guidance and support to the management team under Mr Ng as acting CEO, in order to ensure a smooth transition to Mr Lam’s leadership later in the year.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Lam said: “I am very excited to be joining the AA team at this critical point in HKIA’s development. I also look forward to working closely with Mr Ng and other AA colleagues to deliver the best service and facilities to the airport’s users. I am sure that together, we will be able to sustain HKIA’s success story for many years to come.”
