Luxury hotel group GHM has appointed Tommy Lai as its CEO to drive its next phase of expansion, the 26-year-old luxury hotel group .
The Singapore native will assume some responsibilities currently managed by GHM co-founder and president Hans R Jenni, but Lai’s primary role is to spearhead the development opportunities and to drive GHM’s overall growth ambitions.
“We’re on the verge of some significant new developments, which we’ll be announcing in the coming months,” said Jenni. “Tommy’s appointment is both timely and strategic. His experience and knowledge, especially with regard to the North Asia markets and our widening ambitions across the region, align nicely with our plans.
Lai joins GHM after six years with the Thailand-based Onyx Hospitality Group, where he led their North Asia operation from Hong Kong. His well-rounded understanding of the hospitality industry, complemented by his purposeful professional pursuits throughout his career, has led him to this choice candidacy, the company said in a statement.
