Jill-Tan-GunterMarco Polo Hotels announced the appointment of Jill Tan-Gunter as the Vice President, Human Resources effective December, 2010.

Jill has more than 30 years experience in the hospitality industry of which about 19 years she was in executive management positions, spanning the Asia Pacific region, Mauritius, Seychelles and Maldives. She has most recently been the Area Director of Human Resources Asia Pacific for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts based in Singapore. During her tenure, she was responsible for strategic and tactical human resources for 22 hotels and had successfully spearheaded the opening of various new luxury properties.

“With the expansion of our group’s luxury hotels in China and regionally, Jill’s experience will be very beneficial as we align our human resources vision to meet the requirements of our growing network,” said Mr Steve Kleinschmidt, President of Marco Polo Hotels.

Marco Polo Hotels is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Wharf (Holdings) Ltd; a Hong Kong-listed company with core business interests in property and investments in communications and container-terminal operations.

Like the Italian explorer it is named after, Marco Polo Hotels believes travel is about discovery – be it of business practices and networks or places and people. Its roots are firmly in Asia, offering a hospitality experience that is warm, efficient, and distinctly Asian. After all, its owners, The Wharf Group, have been doing business in Asia since 1886.

Its hotels, located in key business and cultural centres in Asia/Pacific, offer a home for modern-day discoverers who want to get a feel for the places they are visiting and who want to make local contacts and networks in the cities they do business.
