SWISS-BELHOTEL INTERNATIONAL CELEBRATES TOP PERFORMERS AT ANNUAL SBI AWARDS

For Immediate Release 6 June 2018

Swiss-Belhotel International, the global hospitality management chain, has recognised its top performers at the annual SBI Awards, which celebrate the highest levels of excellence across the company’s global portfolio of hotels and resorts.

The SBI Awards honour the hotels and individuals who excel, achieve exceptional levels of performance, and reflect the trademark Passion and Professionalism™ of Swiss-Belhotel International.

This year’s winners were announced at the company’s annual General Manager’s Conference, which was held at the Hotel Ciputra Jakarta last month.

Hotel teams and team members from more than 60 properties around the world can be nominated for an SBI Award. Categories cover the full spectrum of hotel departments, including food & beverage, front office, housekeeping, e-commerce, sales and marketing.

Special Loyalty Certificates were also awarded to those team members who have developed their careers with Swiss-Belhotel International and served the company with distinction over the course of many years.

Australasian properties fared well against the group’s global hotels with Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak taking out the coverted award of ‘Hotel of the Year’. While Grant Gaskin won the ‘General Manager of the Year’ accolade for this role as area general manager of New Zealand and Australia.

Swiss-Belhotel Brisbane and Swiss-Belsuites Victoria Park were also recognised for ‘Revenue Per Available Room’ awards.

Key winners from other regions included Trong Khoa Dinh, Regional Director of Operations & Development – Vietnam & Malaysia, who took home the “Rising Star Award”, and Mohamed Ali Hassanien, General Manager of the Swiss-Belhotel Sharjah, who won the prestigious “Passion & Professionalism™ Award”.

The Executive of the Year award was presented to Emmanuel Guillard, Senior Vice President - Operation and Development - Indonesia, Malaysia, and Cambodia, and CEO of Zest Hotels International and the prestigious Presidential Award went to James Tam, Executive Vice President.
