Bespoke Hospitality Management Asia (BHMA) has announced two top management appointments at its Bangkok head office following its acquisition by Flight Centre Travel Group.
Hotel industry veteran Peter Lucas has been appointed CEO of the company. He was most recently Boutique Corporation’s senior vice president of asset operations, overseeing hotel, serviced apartment and F&B portfolios.
Prior to this, he was COO with Destination Properties, where he asset-managed hotels operated by Accor, Starwood, Hilton and Swissotel, as well as F&B operations for franchised restaurants such as Hard Rock Café.
Working alongside him is Harry Thaliwal, recently appointed executive vice president of operations at BHMA.
Thaliwal started his career in operations with the Pan Pacific Group. He subsequently moved to the InterContinental Hotels Group, where he worked for more than 23 years before joining Centara Hotels and Resorts as corporate director of operations.
In his new role at BHMA, he will oversee all operational aspects including strategy, growth and pre-opening projects.
