SHANGHAI—Hilton has named Qian Jin as the hospitality company’s first area president for Greater China and Mongolia.
Jin most recently served as president at Wanda Hotels & Resorts. He spent the majority of his career at Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., where he ultimately became president for Greater China. He studied in Australia and has worked in Fiji, Malaysia and Singapore.
He reports to Martin Rinck, area president of Asia Pacific Hilton, and serves on the regional executive committee.
Jin’s appointment comes after several additions to Hilton’s Greater China leadership team in recent months, all of whom are Chinese natives. He will replace outgoing SVP of Greater China and Mongolia, Bruce McKenzie, who is retiring.
