Reshuffle at the top and new momentum for Entertainment Resort in North Kent
British company London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) and its parent Kuwaiti European Holding Group (KEH) are pleased to announce senior appointments that will help to drive forward the plans for the Entertainment Resort on the Swanscombe Peninsula in North Kent.
With immediate effect, Humphrey Percy, Group CEO, KEH, will take on the role of CEO of London Resort Company Holdings; Mike Morrison has been hired as CFO and Kevin Doyle, who has worked on the Entertainment Resort project from the start, has been appointed DCO Coordinator, responsible for ensuring that a Development Consent Order (DCO) for the project is successfully submitted.
Humphrey Percy, Group CEO, KEH, said:
“David Testa has decided to step back from the KEH Group and cease his roles within all Group Companies, including LRCH (London Paramount). David’s input into the project has been hugely appreciated and we wish him well in the next stage of his career. We are now entering a new exciting phase of the project as we carry out our final stage of consultation prior to submitting our Development Consent Order (DCO).
“This announcement reaffirms our determination to submit our application for the Entertainment Resort. After many months of review, revision and reappraisal we have a robust business plan for building a world-class entertainment resort in the UK and are ready to push forward. We are working closely with the local authorities, landowners and local community, as well as our other stakeholders, to deliver a global destination attraction.
“I am delighted to be directly overseeing the plans for the proposed Entertainment Resort in North Kent and welcome Mike and Kevin in their new roles as CFO and DCO Coordinator, respectively. Having held senior positions at Morgan Stanley and WestLB AG, amongst others, Mike has a wealth of experience in property, business management and accounting that will be incredibly beneficial to LRCH. Kevin has worked on the project from the start, knows the team and the local area extremely well and played a key role in the delivery of some of the largest entertainment projects across the globe.
“I am confident that now, we have the team, the partners and the plans in place to deliver a truly global destination attraction.”
