In 2010, Blair moved to Thailand for the first time to become Rooms Division Manager in Hua Hin. In 2011, he moved to the Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel, which had recently opened its doors in the heart of the Thai capital, and enjoyed a successful spell, working his way up from Director of Rooms Operations to Director of Operations, and then to Acting General Manager.

Blair’s performance was rewarded in 2015, when he achieved his first full General Manager’s role at the Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon in Vietnam. During his four-year tenure there, he was instrumental in improving all areas of the business and won the ‘2018 Asia Pacific General Manager of the Year’ award.

“I am honored to become General Manager of the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse, a captivating hotel and cultural destination in one of the city’s most historic districts,” said Blair. “To come back to Bangkok, where I previously lived and worked for almost five years, feels like a homecoming. I look forward to working with the entire team here to deliver extraordinary guest experiences that showcase the rich heritage of the Surawongse district, whilst helping to revitalize this vibrant local community.”

Blair returns to Thailand with his wife Kellie, son Bailey and daughter Lyla.
