Group Chief Executive Officer Jean-François Quentin said: “With continued strong demand for live events we are confident in the industry’s prospects for renewed economic activity at a greater pace. Our global talent acquisition strategy is key to ensuring we adapt swiftly to a fast-changing industry, capitalise on new engines of growth and build greater value for our constellation of partners and customers.”
The three new members of the leadership team are equally excited about the stage of growth Constellar is at, and the opportunity to rebuild towards a strong future.
Mel, who will provide leadership to Constellar’s regional offices in China, India and Malaysia, brings over 20 years of experiences from his previous roles at leading trade fair organisers such as Montgomery, Deutsche Messe, Fiera Milano, Messe Frankfurt, Hannover Milano Fairs India and DMG Events (Singapore). “I’m thrilled at the opportunity to build an impactful global business headquartered in Singapore,” said Mel. “As industry players rethink their post-pandemic strategies in the region, I look forward to identifying synergistic partnerships to expand impactful networks, while giving greater focus to the geographies that Constellar is in.”
Added Alexandra, who brings with her 15 years of progressive experience in several MNCs and MICE companies, including RX, Clarion Events and UBM based in Brazil: “Creating exceptional customer experiences begins with understanding customer behaviour. I’m excited that I have this unique opportunity to lead data-led transformation at Constellar that will deepen customer engagement.”
Sim Lim, with over 13 years of experience in e-commerce, venue ownership, tourism and live events business, and most recently leading global strategic partnerships at Klook, said: “Venues now have an immense opportunity to break out of traditional business models.
