Executive Appointments at Sunway Putra Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The 650-room Sunway Putra Hotel in Kuala Lumpur has appointed Augustine M. Silva as Senior General Manager and TS Cheah as Cluster Director of Sales and Marketing.

 A Singaporean national, Augustine has more than 25 years of international hospitality management experience plus robust exposure in Asset and Fund Management.

He has managed hotels in diverse operating environments like New York, Seoul, Bangkok, Sydney and Singapore.

Prior to joining Sunway Putra Hotel, Augustine was Head of Asset Management and Fund Manager for Ascendas Hospitality Trust in Singapore.

Augustine's appointment to Sunway Putra Hotel is his first foray into the Malaysian hospitality industry, where his immediate role is to lead the market launch of the newly refurbished Sunway Putra Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Augustine reports directly to Albert Cheong , CEO of Sunway Hotels & Resorts.

Also new to the team is TS Cheah, taking on the helm of Cluster Director of Sales & Marketing.

 Most recently, TS was the Area Director of Sales and Marketing for Shangri-La Hotels in Tianjin, Tangshan and Qinhuangdao in China where he successfully led the individual hotel's pre-opening sales and marketing teams in driving positive business results within a year of operations.

TS' emphasis now at Sunway Putra Hotel will be on raising the hotel's business profile and awareness following its multi-million Ringgit Malaysia refurbishment.

TS will also be spearheading the launch and opening of the 355-room Sunway Velocity Hotel in Kuala Lumpur in late 2016. Beyond that, TS will be overseeing sales and marketing of all other Sunway Hotels & Resorts, aside from the flagship Sunway Resort City's cluster of hotels.
