The Thanyapura Sports & Health Resort in Phuket,
Thailand has appointed Edgar Toral Hernandez as CEO.
Edgar, who has worked at Thanyapura since
2017 as Executive Vice President, replaces the outgoing President
& CEO, Carl Philipp Berno Graf von Hardenberg.
Edgar was born in Ecuador and holds
Belgian citizenship. He speaks English, French,
Spanish and Italian.
Prior to joining Thanyapura, he worked
in various senior operational roles in the hospitality and
healthcare industries across Latin America, Europe and Asia.
“I am truly honoured to lead Thanyapura Phuket
forward. We have the most dedicated people and group of leaders in
the sports resort and lifestyle medicine industry. Together, we
will capture new opportunities and waves of growth by remaining
laser-focused on providing the best active holiday experiences for
our guests,” Edgar Toral Hernandez said.
Philipp von Hardenberg said, “We can proudly look back and
with even more confidence look forward. As with all catastrophes
in history, we will overcome and in the aftermath of COVID19, tell
our children and grandchildren of the tough times we mastered. I will now be fully focused on Thanyapura’s
international expansion. After six and a half years in Phuket, I
am preparing to move to Singapore in March 2021 to open the new
Thanyapura corporate offices.”
Thanyapura’s first T-Hub will begin operations in
December this year at Hefei, China with more planned in the near
future. The T-Hubs will come in three footprints based on market
size and site selection. All T-Hubs, regardless of size, will have
fitness facilities, group class space, a food and beverage outlet,
consultation rooms, lockers with wet facilities (showers, sauna,
or ice baths), reception with retail, and a children’s area.
Thanyapura’s first resort in China is scheduled to open at the
end of 2022.
