Cathay Pacific selects Mandy Ng as new HK Express CEO
Aug 20, 2019: Just days after Hong Kong’s giant airline Cathay Pacific appointed new CEO, the carrier has also appointed new chief executive for its newest wholly owned subsidiary, HK Express.
Cathay Pacific veteran Mandy Ng takes over as the CEO of HK Express from former CEO Ronald Lam. Ronald Lam has been appointed chief customer and commercial officer. Ronald also assumes the chairmanship of HK Express.
“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,” said Ronald.
“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.”
Mandy began her career with the Cathay Pacific Group as a Management Trainee in 1999 and has since held a variety of positions involving planning, revenue and sales in Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia. Before joining HK Express, Mandy was General Manager Business Development at Swire Pacific, a position she held since July 2018.
Cathay Pacific acquired low-cost airline HK Express for HK$4.93 billion ($630 million) last month.
