Pan Pacific Hotels Group Names Danny Lingham as General Manager
of Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok

Singapore, 20 August, 2009 - Pan Pacific Hotels Group announces the appointment of Danny Lingham as General Manager of Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok which will open late October 2009.

Following the success of Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Singapore, launched last year, Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok is the first extended-stay property for the Pan Pacific Hotels Group outside of Singapore. Danny, in his new appointment, will oversee operations at the 148-suite property.

Residents at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok can expect luxury extended-stay accommodation replete with a dedicated Personal Assistants (PAs) service, providing them with local connections to the city. Part of the upscale and trendy Eight Thonglor development (located between Sukhumvit Soi 55 and Petchaburi Road) in the heart of Bangkok, Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok features 148 well-appointed Suites with various configurations, premium branded amenities and high speed internet connectivity. Leisure facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness centre and swimming pool and a Pacific Lounge where guests can unwind. Residents will also enjoy easy access to a wide variety of shopping and dining options.
Danny began his hospitality career in 1985, and has worked in a number of senior positions with leading hotel brands in Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia and China including Westin, Accor and Shangri-La. His last appointment was with President Park Executive Serviced Apartments in Bangkok, Thailand where he managed a mixed-use complex that blends condominium, extended-stay and retail components into one holistic entity.

“Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok is our first extended-stay development outside of Singapore and we are delighted to have Danny helm it. Developing the extended-stay accommodation market is a key business focus in our planned expansion and we will continue to review suitable opportunities globally,” said Mr. A. Patrick Imbardelli, President and CEO, Pan Pacific Hotels Group. “Danny’s experience in hotels and extended-stay accommodation makes him an ideal leader of the opening team and adds to our overall capabilities in extended-stay accommodation management.” 

“Leading the opening team at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok is an exciting challenge,” said Danny Lingham. There is a growing market for luxury extended-stay accommodation in Bangkok and with our unique Personal Assistants service that will instantly connect our residents to the city, we are poised to meet that demand.”
