Trio of promotions at Destination Asia
Bangkok, February 1, 2017

Destination Asia has announced promotions in Thailand and China, with Philip Wigglesworth promoted to general manager Thailand, Kaci McAllister to general manager for China and Karen Cheng to deputy general manager of the Shanghai office.




Wigglesworth had his start at Destination Asia Thailand in 2011 as product and contracting manager and progressed to his most recent position of business development director. Prior to this, he worked with tour operators in the UK before moving to Thailand in 1996.


In his new position, he oversees the general day to day management of Destination Asia Thailand while playing an active role in product development and sales strategies.




McAllister, who joined Destination Asia in early 2014 to lead the company’s product development throughout China, was promoted in January and now leads all country operations and business development.




Meanwhile, Cheng now leads the Shanghai team in creating unique experiences after initially joining the team in 2011. The Shanghai native has a degree in tourism marketing from Tongji University and 14 years of experience in the tourism industry.
