Fred Zhou, Senior Vice President of MGM Resorts International & Chief Representative in China, shared his views on how to achieve a win-win result between hotel investors and management companies. “The management company needs to continuously improve itsmanagement system. There is sometimes a problem of poor communication between the General Manager and the Owner. The interface between the Owner’s Representative and the Deputy General Manager needs to be improved. The Owner and General Manager must sometimes take the responsibility for cultivatingsuch changes. The management company should fully delegate authority to the General Manager. At the same time a rigorous back office system should be set up to reduce the scope for poor results arising from human factors. In any case, the interests of the management party and the investor are closely aligned. The management party must innovate rapidly to adapt to market requirements”.
