New Century Tourism Group Co., Ltd. - Chairman
Since 1988 when New Century Hotel Xiao Shan, the first hotel of New Century Tourism Group, was set up, Chen Miaolin has built it into a five-star hotel brand with his dedication and flexibility. New Century has become one of the top domestic private enterprises and a premium chain hotel group in the nation. Chen was a pioneer to adopt the concept of “combining the business of the residence, commerce, hotel, and tourism,” and had New Century listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2013 as the first domestic hotel REIT. Under the leadership of Chen, New Century Tourism Group has also acquired the Frankfurt Golden Tulip Hotel in 2013 to enhance global recognition of the company.
Insisting on “developing our own brand and creating value for the company”, Chen seeks steady development and diligent devotion to the company. After 25 years of expansion, the New Century Tourism Group contracts with over 140 hotels and more than 40,000 rooms, in regions covering 22 provinces, autonomous regions and municipality in China, as well as Frankfurt, Germany.
Chen has advocated for greater enjoyment of both work and life and encourages more sharing among all staff. He has set up a relief fund to help employees facing some difficulties and a public scholarship to serve society.
