In the present paper, a complex Randers space with the metric \( F = \alpha + \varepsilon \left| \beta \right| + k\frac{{\left| \beta \right|^{2} }}{\alpha },\varepsilon ,k \ne 0 \) is introduced and expressions for fundamental metric tensor, angular metric tensor, Chern–Finsler connection coefficients and curvature are obtained.
