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.

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.
