“I feel very honoured to be part of this Kempinski flagship property in Bangkok – a city considered to be one of the most exciting and vivacious in the world. I am thrilled to be here,” said Alex. “I believe that, in order to deliver a truly memorable experience for our guests, we must adopt and maintain the highest standards of service at every level of our operations. Of course, every hotel has beds – but what makes us different from our competitors is that we strive day after day to merge seamlessly our European heritage with world-famous Thai service and hospitality. Every detail, no matter how small, matters to all of us at the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. I am looking forward to welcoming local and international guests to Bangkok’s only city-resort style property,” he added.

Alex is married and has two children.
