The Pan Pacific Hotels Group has appointed Fabien Linsay as General Manager of the Parkroyal Serviced Suites and Pan Pacific Serviced Suites in Singapore. Franois Sigrist has also been appointed as General Manager of the Parkroyal Penang in Malaysia.

In his new role, Fabien will oversee operations at Pan Pacific Hotels Groups two serviced residences properties in Singapore. Parkroyal Serviced Suites, located on Beach Road, recently completed a Sin$3.1 million refurbishment and features new enhanced facilities and interiors.

Fabien boasts extensive hospitality experience that spans countries including Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.

He has held several appointments with the Ascott Group in its corporate office, as well as in regional and general management roles, which included the opening of two properties in Dubai.

With Millennium & Copthorne, he was the General Manager at the Millennium Resort Patong and was responsible for the opening of the 421-room property. His last appointment was General Manager at the Changi Village Hotel, Singapore.

Cultivating the extended-stay business segment is a key focus and we are confident that Fabien, with his wealth of experience in this field, will steer our teams toward success, said Mr. A. Patrick Imbardelli, President and CEO, Pan Pacific Hotels Group. These properties herald the beginning of our extended-stay developments; we are excited about the prospects of such projects already underway in key Asian cities like Bangkok.

Part of the upscale Eight Thonglor development (located between Sukhumvit Soi 55 and Petchaburi Road) in the heart of Bangkok, Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok, is slated to open in September this year.

The company has also appointed Franois Sigrist as
General Manager of the Parkroyal Penang in Malaysia.

An established hotelier since 1981, Franois previous appointments were with hotel companies such as Four Seasons, Shangri-La and InterContinental. A Swiss national, Franois geographically diverse experience spans Geneva, Switzerland and USA to Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia. His last position was at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa in Langkawi, Malaysia.

His appointment at Parkroyal Penang also brings Franois back to the state he previously spent nearly a decade at as General Manager at Equatorial Hotel. Franois love for Penang, as well as his intimate knowledge of the popular holiday destination, are invaluable in his new position.

Pan Pacific Hotels Group offers tremendous growth opportunities. I look forward to contributing to the success of Parkroyal Penang, a resort with remarkable potential, said Franois Sigrist. I am confident that with the talented team in place, we can raise the benchmarks of excellence even higher.
