Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) – the major air cargo handler at the world’s largest air cargo hub – has restructured its senior management team.
Tan Chee Hong, formerly Hactl Executive Director – Information Services, and Director of Hactl Solutions Limited has been promoted to the newly-created position of Chief Operating Officer, responsible for the entire SuperTerminal 1 operation, and reporting directly to Hactl Managing Director Mark Whitehead. Tan has worked for Hactl for four years; his previous career included senior positions at multi-national automotive giant Jardine Cycle & Carriage Group, based in Singapore.
Kenneth Chan, Executive Director – Engineering Services, and three General Managers (C.H. Chan, Cargo Terminal Services; Simon Fu, Customer Representation; and Cindy Ng, Information Services) will all report to Tan in future.
Vincent Lau (former Hactl Executive Director – Service Delivery) and Jimmy Chan (former Managing Director of Hacis, Hactl’s subsidiary specialising in trucking operations in the Pearl River Delta) have taken up posts as Advisors to Hactl’s management.
Meanwhile Kenneth Bell, formerly Executive Director of Hactl has taken over as Managing Director of Hacis, and will also be responsible for Hactl new business projects.
Eugenia Ma is Hactl’s new Finance Director, replacing Christopher Ip.
Lilian Chan continues as Executive Director – Commercial and Business Development, and Cecilia Cheung continues as Executive Director – Human Resources, both reporting direct to Mark Whitehead.
Says Hactl Managing Director Mark Whitehead: “We have a huge pool of talent and experience within Hactl. This new structure is about exploiting that resource to the absolute optimum, and providing our people with the opportunity to grow and more fully utilise their impressive abilities. We expect real dividends both in enhanced service and productivity.
“With these changes to our management, we are also shaping up to explore new opportunities beyond our current activities. The air cargo world is changing, and Hactl must evolve with it if we are to maintain our exceptional tradition of success.”
He concludes; “I would particularly like to pay tribute to our good friends Vincent Lau and Jimmy Chan for their long service, hard work and immense loyalty to Hactl. We are very fortunate in having continued access to their expertise, while they can now enjoy well-deserved, less pressured roles.”
