Singapore announces today six senior appointments to oversee the internal and external operations of the luxury design hotel, which marks the Sofitel Luxury Hotels group’s first strategic foray into the local market.

Joining General Manager Tony Chisholm to firmly establish the upcoming hotel as one of the country’s treasured landmarks and the benchmark of ‘glocalisation’ in the hospitality industry, are:

 Gabrielle Choy as Director of Casting and Coaching

 Prerna Pant as Director of Marketing and CommunicationsSofitel So Singapore Ambassadors, June 2013 (Low Res)

 Jessica Khoo as Director of Sales and Business Development

 Lloyce Lau as Director of Finance

 Jerome Le Gall as the Wine and Dine Guru

 Aung Khaing as the Mac Mini Guru

Aligned with Sofitel So’s ambition of being a savant representation of its destination, Gabrielle, Prerna, Jessica, Lloyce, Jerome and Aung together share more than 80 years of regional industry experience and are bringing their keen knowledge of the local and international hospitality sectors to helm the team. This will ensure that the boutique soul of the luxury hotel blends effortlessly with the uniquely Singaporean experience of amalgamated cultures and traditions that have stood the test of time.

“Hotels are all about its people, and we have gone through an immersive selection process with each applicant to ensure that the hotel’s values resonate with those coming on-board,” said Tony Chisholm, General Manager of Sofitel So Singapore. “These exciting appointments reinforce the establishment of a dynamic pre-opening team of signature So Ambassadors and pave the way for the trendy, design- focused and technology-savvy new hotel.”

All of Sofitel So Singapore’s Ambassadors will personify five core values – stylish, creative, dynamic, playful and sociable – espoused by the designer, boutique hotel vision of Sofitel, creating a new brand mandate for quality in service, design, gastronomy and culture in Singapore. These So Ambassadors will share the vision of providing guests a differentiated cousu main service enriched with their individual personalities, performance and a passion for excellence that is reflective of what any guest would expect of a Sofitel establishment across the globe. Where Karl Lagerfeld makes his mark on Sofitel So Singapore with his signature emblem, the hotel’s astute service team too will lend the establishment a heart and personality that in time will become So Singapore’s very own signature of excellence in the local hospitality industry.

Building on the time-honoured establishment of Sofitel Luxury Hotels and their unique brand blueprint that combines the best of French luxury with an emphasis on local tradition, Sofitel So is its designer hotel label featuring trendy hotels in contemporary locations – Singapore being the third addition globally to Sofitel So’s rapidly expanding portfolio.

Sofitel So Singapore is located at 35 Robinson Road, in an iconic neo-classical heritage building that was first built in 1927. The boutique hotel resides in the heart of Singapore’s central business district, within arm’s length from uniquely Singaporean experiences that complement its luxury lifestyle offerings.

Sofitel So Singapore is scheduled to open later this year.
