Genting Hong Kong Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lim Kok Thay resigned, days after the company filed to wind up its business in one of the biggest stumbles by a cruise operator since the pandemic began.

Lim, who owns 76% of Genting Hong Kong, stepped down with effect from Jan. 21, the company said in a stock exchange filing. Au Fook Yew also resigned as deputy CEO and president. Neither man has any disagreement with the board, the company said.
