SINGAPORE (Feb. 24, 2011) - Carlson, a privately held, global hospitality and travel company, today announced three leadership appointments for its India and Thailand hotels.

The three general managers appointed include Marco Seiler at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Hyderabad Banjara Hills, India; Martin Fabiano at the Park Plaza Bangkok Soi 18 and Veronique Sirault at the Park Plaza Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok in Thailand. “Carlson is committed to rewarding its strong staff performers with career and growth opportunities,” said Simon Barlow, president, Carlson Hotels, Asia Pacific. “Marco was a key driver in the operational success of the Park Plaza Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok, where he was previously general manager. Under his stewardship, the hotel won several awards and was voted Bangkok’s most popular hotel by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest online travel community. He will now take on more challenges and responsibilities at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Hyderabad Banjara Hills.”
