GHM Names Hansjörg Meier as Senior Vice President

SINGAPORE (Jan. 17, 2013)
GHM , the 20-year-old luxury hotel group that has opened the door to some of Asia’s most exotic locales, is appointing hospitality heavyweight Hansjörg Meier as senior vice president.

Meier, a Swiss native with a prominent 34-year career on the international hospitality landscape, will oversee GHM’s hotel and resort operations, as well as the upcoming openings of new projects in Europe and Asia, from GHM’s corporate office in Singapore. General managers at all of GHM’s properties will report directly to him.

GHM currently counts upwards of 600 five-star rooms and suites in destinations as diverse as Hoi An, Muscat and Chiang Mai. Meier’s arrival will strengthen the group’s corporate structure and presence in line with its ambitious expansion plans.

GHM recently released details of three new luxury hotels set to debut this year in Andermatt, Mumbai and Suzhou.

"With GHM’s accelerating growth plans, a person of Hansjörg Meier's experience and stature to coordinate operational activities is invaluable" said GHM President Hans R. Jenni. "His considerable knowledge and talent better enables the fulfillment of our ambitions."

Meier joined GHM in 1999 as Director of Food & Beverage at The Datai Langkawi. In 2000, he was promoted to General Manager of The Legian Bali and during his six years in Bali, Meier oversaw the openings and operations of The Club at The Legian and The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. From 2006 to 2012, Meier was the General Manager at the award-winning Setai South Beach in Miami, before his January 2013 return to Asia as Senior Vice President of GHM, reporting directly to Jenni.
