Saurabh Bakshi Joins St. Regis Macao as General Manager of Operations

The Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central have appointed Mr. Saurabh Bakshi as General Manager of Operations.

Mr. Bakshi reports directly to Ms. Janet McNab, Managing Director of Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel and The St. Regis Macao.

Most recently, he served as General Manager for Sheraton Grand Bangalore at Brigade Gateway.

“Saurabh is an award-winning hotelier who is passionate about driving results, whilst also delivering the highest levels of service,” said Janet McNab. “Saurabh has a balanced approach between looking after his team and looking after his guests whilst always keeping his eye on the commercial reality of the business he controls. He garnered a number of awards for each of the hotels he has worked for, and together with our teams at Sheraton Grand Macao and The St. Regis Macao, I am sure he will be able to sprinkle some of his magic throughout our organization.”
