Jenny Lau, founder, president, and CEO of Hong Kong-based Sino Jet Management, has decided to relinquish her role as chairperson of the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA). Lau will step down at the association’s annual general meeting in Singapore on June 11, and AsBAA is taking nominations for the next chairperson until May 24.
In an open letter to members on May 21, Lau thanked the business aviation community in Asia for its support. “After a challenging and highly rewarding two years, the time has come to pass the baton to the next leader of the association,” she said, adding, “I am enormously grateful for the support that has been given to me personally and to the association during my time as leader. The association will continue to move at great momentum to represent the needs of the industry in Asia.” Lau said she hopes to transition from chairperson to a board of governors (BoG) role.
AsBAA released a statement saying that at the June 11 meeting association members will elect five individuals to make up the new board of directors (BoD). A chairperson will then be appointed from among the group.
The AsBAA BoG supports the BoD with the daily running of the association. “Both BoG and BoD positions are now open to nominees from the membership,” said the statement.
AsBAA also said: “The announcement of Lau’s intention to step down comes as part of preparation for Singapore Business Aviation Week," from June 10 to 14. This includes the third annual AsBAA Singapore Safety Day on June 10, the general meeting and elections on June 11, and AsBAA’s inaugural static display and community event, AsBAA Takes Off, on June 14.
