Hilton Hotels Corporation has appointed Martin Rinck as President Hilton Hotels - Asia Pacific, based at the company's regional headquarters in Singapore. Mr Rinck will commence his duties on 17 November 2008.

Mr Rinck joins Hilton Hotels Corporation from Carlson Hotels where he has been President and Managing Director of Carlson Hotels Worldwide - Asia Pacific since 2007, based in Singapore with regional offices in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Delhi, Shanghai and Sydney.

Prior to this role, Mr Rinck was the Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer for The Rezidor Hotel Group based in Brussels, where he drove significant growth of the groups hotel portfolio in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Prior to this, he was CEO of Movenpick Gastronomy International based in Switzerland, responsible for 150 restaurants worldwide. Mr Rinck has also held various executive management positions with the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and InterContinental Hotels, working in Indonesia, Germany, Portugal, France, the UK and the USA.

In his new capacity, Mr Rinck will oversee operations of a portfolio of 50 Hilton family-branded hotels currently under management, lease and franchise in Asia Pacific, including the Hilton Sydney, which is the only company-owned asset in the region. With plans to open another 300 hotels in the next 9 years across the various market segments, the company is gearing up for unprecedented growth and entry into the economy and mid-market segments as well as an enhanced luxury and upscale hotel portfolio.

Hilton has identified India, China, Japan and Australia as priority markets where the group will significantly strengthen its presence.

Martin Rinck succeeds Koos Klein who successfully led Hilton's operations in the region over the past ten years. Since his appointment in 1997, Mr Klein established a profitable enterprise throughout Asia Pacific and the Middle East, and was recognized earlier this year as Asia Pacific Hotelier of the Year 2007.

Born in Hamburg, Germany, Martin Rinck holds a Masters Degree of Business Administration from Brunel University, London, and attended Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
