The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) has announced that June Ko has joined its staff as Vice President, Asia Pacific Operations.

To be based in IAAPA's Hong Kong office, and fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and English, Ko comes to the global attractions industry trade association with more than 10 years of experience promoting business interests in the Asia-Pacific region having considerable expertise in assisting Europe and North America-based companies with successfully navigating cultural and business differences.

Most recently, Ko served as a Director with Meridian Partners, a Hong Kong-based consulting company that assists clients engaged in international trade, especially in China and Southeast Asia. Based in the Toronto office, she provided support and guidance to North American clients. Prior to Meridian Partners, Ko held various positions with ICS Trust, a financial services company based in Hong Kong; Ascalade Communications, a wireless communications firm with offices in Hong Kong and Mainland China; and Ngai Lik Electronics Trading Ltd., also based in Hong Kong and Mainland China.

In her new role Ko will oversee the IAAPA Asia Pacific regional office which develops and implements programs and services in the region including communications, membership development, education, and the Asian Attractions Expo, working closely with the IAAPA Asia Pacific Advisory Committee.

Commenting on Ko's appointment, Noland explains "we are excited to have June join our team "June's extensive experience in the region with a wide variety of businesses will be a significant asset to IAAPA as we focus on growing our presence and taking care of our members within the market."
