WorldHotels has appointed James Koh and Ganessan Suppiah as regional vice president of hotel development and regional vice president of sales in Asia-Pacific respectively.
Based in Singapore, Koh will oversee the portfolio development efforts for the region. He started his career in corporate sales at Raffles International and Grand Hyatt Singapore, before joining WorldHotels as an account manager for the membership services team in Asia-Pacific.
He then moved to Shanghai in 2008 and stayed for over seven years to manage the group’s growing portfolio in the Greater China region. Upon his return to Singapore in 2014, Koh joined the hotel development department.
For Ganessan Suppiah, who was recently promoted to regional vice president of sales in Asia-Pacific, he will lead all sales strategies and initiatives in the region out of his base in Sydney.
Ganessan first started off as the director of sales for Australia and New Zealand in 2007, before moving to the UK for his new role as regional director of sales for the UK, Ireland, Nordic and Russia in 2016.
Both Koh and Ganessan have served WorldHotels for over 11 years.
