Yngvar Stray, a veteran Norwegian-born hotelier with 25 years of experience, has returned to The St. Regis Beijing as General Manager. Prior to his return, Mr. Stray was the General Manager of The St. Regis Singapore, where he spearheaded the launch of the first St. Regis hotel in South East Asia.

The role of a host was a calling that began early for Yngvar in his home town of Kristiansand. He began his career as a part-time receptionist and F&B assistant with a local hotel. He subsequently trained as a Sales Manger at Hotel Triangel in Oslo and in 1990 joined SAS Scandinavia Hotel in Oslo as Revenue Manager and quickly rose to Front Office Manager, Director of Catering Sales & Reservations, and ultimately Director of Sales & Marketing.

Yngvar’s first overseas appointment was in 1994 in Istanbul, with Conrad International as Director of Sales & Marketing. In 1995, Yngvar moved to Singapore, joining Sheraton Towers as Director of Rooms. 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.
