In 1997, he returned to Norway, tasked as Director of Sales & Marketing with re-branding two Radisson SAS hotels in Bergen. Yngvar joined Starwood in 1998, initially as Director of Sales & Marketing, and subsequently promoted to Hotel Manager at The St. Regis Beijing.

His first appointment as General Manager was in 2002, heading the Sheraton Shenyang Lido Hotel which he opened. A move to Seoul followed, before subsequently taking up the GM position at The St. Regis Singapore.
