She becomes the “official representative” of SJM Resorts and “is responsible for all formal business dealings and contacts” with the Macau government, as well as with the group’s subsidiaries and other entities, the firm added.
“Ms Ho is also responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the company and corporate matters including the formulation of policies, objectives, and investment plans to ensure that the company and its activities are in full compliance with the relevant legal and regulatory obligations,” added the statement.
