연사소개 ｜ Singaporean, has worked in over 28 countries in varied fields of hospitality, which perhaps qualifies him to be called a global hotelier. With an unending quest for constant learning, he thrives in a collaborative environment with like-minded individuals and self-confessed devotees of finer things in life. He is an avid raconteur, pedantically value driven and hopelessly passionate about developing people.
Following his initial schooling and management training in the very diversified and vigorous standards of Indian hospitality, he did his MBA from IMHI (Cornell-ESSEC) in France and the Cornell Hotel School, USA, graduating with honors. He was a pioneer in extended stay during its infancy and embedded these roots worldwide (including in Korea). Having worked with listed entities, PE Funds and REITS in London, Hong Kong and Singapore, he is equally at ease working in institutions as he is with high net worth individuals of contrasting origins.
He is married to Cindy, a Singaporean-Chinese, for 2 decades (and counting) and has 2 Chindian children—Renee, their daughter who is a budding harpist and Kyan, the Flautist son, who has set his sights on making waves within the digital sphere.
