David Wicker has been appointed General Manager of the New World Saigon Hotel.

Mr. Wicker moves into the role from his former position as General Manager of New World Wuhan Hotel in China, a role he has held for the past three and a half years.

 He follows the transfer of New World Hotel Saigon General Manager Henrik Iversen, who will take over operations as General Manager at New World Dalian Hotel in China.

With more than 30 years of experience, Mr. Wicker, a British national, was born and raised in Zimbabwe, Africa. His involvement in the industry spans three continents (Europe, Australia and Asia) and 10 countries (Scotland, England, Australia, Fiji, Philippines, Myanmar, Singapore, Indonesia, China and now Vietnam).

Mr. Wicker joined New World Hotels in China in January 2009 in Wuhan, where he played a key role in strengthening the market position of the property. Under his leadership, the hotel was established as a market leader for business and leisure travelers.

During his career, he has crossed paths with many international hotel names, starting in the food and beverage sector before branching out to event management, executive assistant management and finally general management in 1997.

Having had the pleasure of working in remote island locations such as Fiji and Indonesia or the bustling metropolis of Shanghai and London, I have been blessed with meeting some of the friendliest and most caring people in the world, said Mr. Wicker. Now I have the opportunity to expand this list to include Vietnam, a country of rich cultural value. I have to admit, accepting this position did not require a second thought. The citizens of Southeast Asia, including those of Vietnam, have the most natural hospitality traits of any I have had the pleasure of working beside. I know I will benefit from their gentle guidance and sincerity.

The New World Saigon Hotel is located directly in the city center opposite the lush 23 September Park and just steps away from the famous Ben Thanh market.

 The 533-room hotel features comprehensive business facilities, four restaurants and lounges offering a wide spectrum of local and international cuisines, a health club and an outdoor swimming pool.
