Bailey: My focus remains in South-east Asia
CHRIS Bailey has resigned from Bangkok-based Centara Hotels & Resorts after 12 years of service with the company, during which he rose to be chief operating officer of the fast-expanding chain.
“It has been a hugely difficult decision and indeed a while in the making for me. I have enjoyed over 12 years with the company but feel I cannot add much more to their current journey and so the time is right to seek the next step in my career plan.
“As such I have taken the decision to resign and seek new opportunities available to me. After more than 20 years in the region, my love and focus remain here in South-east Asia and am currently exploring various opportunities although nothing is finalised,” he told TTG Asia e-Daily in an email interview.
Bailey will leave at the end of September. “It’s business as usual now and thereafter as the wonderful team that has grown with me and supported me so well remains in place and very much active,” he added.
