Hong Kong, May 29, 2018: The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel, has announced two new management appointments to strengthen the property’s strategic development in branding and communications.

Evelyn Yo has been promoted to Director of Communications. In her new role, Yo will oversee The Murray’s advertising, marketing communications and public relations initiatives to promote Niccolo Hotel’s flagship property to an international audience. Part of The Murray’s pre-opening team, Yo joined The Murray in April 2017 as Assistant Director of Communications.
