Vice President of Technical Services, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific
In his capacity as Vice President of Technical Services at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific, Carl is responsible for leading his team in managing architecture, interior design and construction of hotels across their 18 different brands in the region. Blending design sensibilities with business acumen in their work for hotel owners in maximising returns right from planning through construction has also helped Wyndham set record growth numbers of hotel executions and openings in APAC over the past 10 years.
A passionate advocate for sustainability and technology in hospitality, Carl believes balancing efficient green construction with market-led data-driven design is the key to improving guest-centric experiences for a prolonged environmentally responsible future.
Prior to Wyndham, Carl began his career as an architect and has since served in management roles thereafter for international hospitality and real estate companies such as Ascott and Capitaland – managing design and projects, as well as undertaking technical advisory of acquisitions and divestments on various asset classes (including commercial, industrial, residential other than hospitality) across the globe.
