In his new Hong Kong-based role, Mr Lee will be responsible for leading Air Canada’s commercial activities and Global Sales teams across Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Mr Lee joins Air Canada from Malaysia Airlines, where he held a number of leadership roles, including Regional Senior Vice President, North Asia and North America, Regional Senior Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and, most recently, Head of Regional Sales for Oceania and Southeast Asia.
