Melina Leong has resigned from Sands China Ltd, where she has worked for the past 10 years, in order to dedicate more time to her family. “Having worked for 30 years and with 10 years at Sands, I definitely had spent more time at the company and with my colleagues than I spent at home and with my family. In order to have the luxury of time to do the things I need to do or want to do, after much consideration, I have decided to leave the company,” she said in an email released yesterday. Lately, Ms Leong was serving as COO of Cotai Water Jet, a Sands China subsidiary. This followed years of leading the public relations department at SCL, and more recently as senior vice-president for public relations and community affairs. “It is not an easy decision,” Ms Leong said, adding that “I went through an unforgettable and dynamic 10 years with Sands and am proud to be part of a very professional team.”
