22 December 2017 (Hong Kong) - Wharf Hotels is pleased to announce the promotion of Dalip Singh from Hotel Manager to General Manager for Marco Polo Hotels – Hong Kong. Reporting to the group’s Vice President Operations, Singh will be in charge of the very popular three Hong Kong Hotels located on prestigious Canton Road: Marco Polo Hongkong, Prince and Gateway.
Dalip joined Marco Polo as Hotel Manager in December last year for the 3 cluster properties. Prior to his appointment with Wharf Hotels, Dalip was Managing Director of KOP Properties responsible for strategic growth and positioning of the company. A seasoned hotelier with more than two decades of experience, Singh has held senior management positions with reputable hotel groups including The Ritz Carlton and Dusit Hotels in his native Singapore, Malaysia and Dubai. His expertise includes hotel operations, safety and security, corporate operations and hotel pre-opening management.
“Dalip has been a key driver in the three Hong Kong hotels’ improvement goals and initiatives, resulting in improved business performances, as well as guest and associate engagement metrics. He was also instrumental in the achievement of the Hong Kong Management Association Quality Award earlier this year and created an even stronger team spirit and alignment between the three hotels’ operations through this process. With his knowledge and organisational expertise, we are certain that Dalip will further strengthen the performance of the three cluster hotels,” said Dr Jennifer Cronin, President Wharf Hotels.
