Borrenbergs, a native of the Netherlands, holds a law degree and worked at the European Commission in Brussels, before spending 15 years with NH Hotel Group, progressing to director of human resources. Most recently, he was corporate director of human resources for H Hospitality Collection, based in Abu Dhabi.

New Zealander Farrell has 28 years' of experience in the design industry, and joins RHG from Hong Kong, where he was executive director of Aedas, a leading global architecture and design practice.

Yeo, a Singaporean national, is a law graduate of the National University of Singapore and was admitted to the Singapore Bar in 1998. She joins RHG from Wah Hin & Co, a Singapore-based investment company, where she held the position of SVP and group general counsel.

"Our new colleagues will play a vital role in our growth as we double our global portfolio,” said Giannouka. “As our regional HR leader, Bram will support Radisson Hotel Group to attract and nurture the best talent in Asia Pacific, enabling the transformation of our company from within. Greg will spearhead the creation of exciting hotel designs, new concepts and the roll out of our new brand standards across the region. Our growth strategy entails doubling the size of our portfolio and each new hotel project involves extensive legal work, from negotiating contracts to navigating labor laws, so Hui Leng’s legal expertise will be vital. I look forward to continuing to work with our entire executive team as we bring our strategic vision to life.”
