Change of command at Disneyland

Central Station | 7 Dec 2018

A change of faces is about to be seen around Hong Kong Disneyland, but we're not talking about some of the make-believe characters who are out and about there.

This involves staff welcoming a new managing director, though many will recognize who it is.

Samuel Lau Wing-kee is leaving the job after three years as he and his family return to Orlando, where he will take up a new position at Walt Disney World in February.

He is succeeded by Stephanie Young, who has been with the Walt Disney Co for 26 years. And Young is no stranger to Hong Kong Disneyland: she was the park's chief financial officer between 2006 and 2009.

In her most recent role Young was senior vice president of operations at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Lau had taken over the managing director's chair from Andrew Kam Man-ho, who occupied it from 2007 to 2016.
