10 January, 2013
With the New Year we say farewell to Alex Willats(5th from left) who takes up the role of General Manager of Dusit Thani Manila, Dusit International’s flagship property in the Philippines. Alex joined Dusit Thani Bangkok as Resident Manager before being promoted to General Manager of the property. We’d like to wish him all the best in his new assignment.
Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce the arrival of James Wilson(5th from right) as the new General Manager of Dusit Thani Bangkok. James has been with Dusit International since 2000 and was General Manager of Dusit Thani Dubai before joining us.
Graduating in Hotel Catering and Institutional Management from the University of Ulster, UK, followed by a postgraduate diploma in Administrative and Legal Studies, James subsequently graduated as an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ACIS) before joining InterContinental Hotel Group in the UK.
James is the recipient of numerous awards including Thailand’s “General Manager of the Year” awarded by Jacobs Creek and Thai Hospitality Magazine. In addition, he pioneered the IIP (http://www.investorsinpeople.com/home) Standard Certification for Dusit Thani Dubai, the only hotel within Dusit International certified by IIP. The hotel also earned the first earth check certification and was the first Dusit hotel to achieve the Silver Earth Check designation under James’ leadership.
Everyone at Dusit Thani Bangkok would like to extend a warm welcome to James Wilson.
