Radisson advances its Destination 2022 mission with key appointments in Asia Pacific
Radisson has made three new senior executive appointments in the Asia Pacific market.
The positions announced saw Bram Borrenbergs named as Vice President of Human Resources, Asia Pacific, Greg Farrell taking the role of Vice President of Design and Technical Services, Asia Pacific, and Yeo Hui Leng named as General Counsel, Asia Pacific.
These new appointments were made as part of Radisson’s five-year Destination 2022 plan, a transformation strategy which will see the group grow and expand.
Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group, said of the appointments, “As our regional HR leader, Bram will support Radisson Hotel Group to attract and nurture the best talent in Asia Pacific, enabling the transformation of our company from within. Greg will spearhead the creation of exciting hotel designs, new concepts and the rollout of our new brand standards across the region.”
“Our growth strategy entails doubling the size of our portfolio and each new hotel project involves extensive legal work, from negotiating contracts to navigating labour laws, so Hui Leng’s legal expertise will be vital. I look forward to continuing to work with our entire executive team as we bring our strategic vision to life,” Ms Giannouka concluded.
