Jennifer Fox appointed group CEO of Millennium & Copthorne

Jennifer Fox has been appointed group chief executive of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels with effect from 19 June.

Most recently Fox served as president of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, where she was responsible for the brand's global hotel portfolio, prior to which she held senior positions within InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) over a period of 10 years, including chief operating officer for Europe and senior vice-president overseeing global brand marketing.

She joined IHG from Starwood Hotels & Resorts, where she was global brand manager for Sheraton after having spent over 10 years in various operational roles with ITT Sheraton.

Fox will also continue as an independent non-executive director of Village Roadshow, an Australian mass media and entertainment company.

Tan Kian Seng has served as interim group chief executive since February 2017, after the resignation of Aloysius Lee after nearly two years.

Fox said: "I look forward to working with chairman Kwek and the board, together with my new Millennium & Copthorne Hotels colleagues around the world. The group's distinctive portfolio of iconic properties gives it a strong edge in tackling the challenges in today's global hospitality market. I see this as a significant opportunity at a time of great change in our industry."

Kwek Leng Beng, chairman of M&C, added: "I am delighted to welcome Jennifer to the group as our chief executive officer. With her strong leadership and in-depth sales, marketing and branding background, she will play a critical role in repositioning our key hotels, uplifting brand awareness of the group, as well as improving the overall performance of our portfolio.

"On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Kian Seng for his commitment, support and the leadership he has provided. As chief of staff, he will assist Jennifer in expediting the progress of the group."
