Regent Hotels Group is delighted to welcome the return of Venessa Koo – a Regent alumni. Ms. Koo has been away since the mid-1990s, when she was Marketing Manager of Regent Taipei. Having enjoyed extraordinary career success, Ms. Koo is re-joining the group as Senior Vice President of Development and Technical Services. She will be leading the global expansion of the group’s three distinct brands: the legendary and luxurious Regent Hotels, the cultural and deluxe Silks Hotels, and the contemporary and intimate Just Sleep Hotels.

Ms. Koo returns to Regent with substantial experience in hotel development, marketing, advisory and business management. Most recently she was with AccorHotels as Vice President of Development – Southeast & Northeast Asia. For the past decade, she has been instrumental in the group’s Southeast Asia development and led its exceptional growth in the region across more than 10 brands including Sofitel.

Commenting on this most recent appointment, Steven Pan, Chairman of Regent Hotels Group said, “It feels like a wonderful destiny to welcome Venessa back to the group. With her valuable experience, coupled with her outstanding professionalism, entrepreneurship, strategic vision and her innate understanding of the Regent experience, Venessa will be delivering the brand promise as she fulfils the important role in leading our group’s vigorous expansion plans.”

“I am looking forward to returning to Regent – a true pioneer in our industry. I am honored to have this opportunity to spearhead the development of the company that I have such great respect for. We are excited for Regent to return to gateway cities such as Jakarta, which will be another great display of the mixed-use lifestyle development platform, and to open in Harbin and new resort destinations. The Silks Hotels and Just Sleep Hotels brands are also poised for tremendous growth internationally,” said Ms. Koo.
