"I was attracted by the scale of Hilton's ambitions, and its value system and clear vision to be the world's leading hospitality company," said Qian Jin . "More specifically, I share Hilton's enthusiasm for China and look forward to helping drive the commitment to creating heartfelt experiences for guests, meaningful opportunities for team members and high value for owners."
