Hong Kong Disneyland’s long-serving managing director Andrew Kam (pictured) has resigned for “personal reasons” after more than seven years with the company. He will be replaced by vice-president of operations Samuel Lau.
The announcement comes not long after the theme park announced a net loss of HK$148 million last year.
In an announcement on Monday evening, upcoming offerings at Hong Kong Disneyland include the Star Wars special programme launching this summer, the Iron Man Experience attraction opening in late 2016 and the Disney Explorers Lodge in 2017.
Lau joined Disney in 2010 in Florida as vice-president of transportation, and was promoted to vice-president of Epcot four years later; he then took the position of new programme development Asia VP (Disneyland International) before joining Hong Kong Disneyland.
Before Disney, he had more than 20 years of experience in public service in the US in the areas of planning, engineering, and the operations and maintenance of public transportation systems in cities and metropolitan areas.
