Hilton makes key hire in China
Shanghai, April 20, 2017
 

Hilton has named Qian Jin as the company's first area president for Greater China and Mongolia.

 

A Chinese native, Qian studied in Australia and has worked in Fiji, Malaysia and Singapore. Spending the majority of his career at Starwood Hotels & Resorts, the hospitality veteran ultimately became president for Greater China, before taking on his most recent position as president of Wanda Hotels & Resorts.

Based in Shanghai, he will now be responsible for taking Hilton forward in what is already the company's second largest market in terms of hotels open and under development. He reports to Martin Rinck, area president of Asia Pacific Hilton, and serves on the regional executive committee.

 

Qian's appointment comes after several key additions to Hilton's Greater China leadership team in recent months, all of whom are native Chinese. He will replace outgoing senior vice president of Greater China and Mongolia, Bruce McKenzie, who is retiring after a distinguished career in the industry.
