The Shangri-La Group is pleased to appoint Mr Jürgen Dörr as the area vice president – operations (Hong Kong and Taiwan) and general manager of Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong on 5 August 2019. In his new capacity, Mr Dörr oversees the operations of five properties in Hong Kong, including Kowloon Shangri-La, Island Shangri-La, Kerry Hotel, Hotel Jen and The Aberdeen Marina Club, as well as two hotels in Taiwan – Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei and Shangri-La Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Tainan, managing over 3,500 employees, 42 food and beverage outlets and 70 function rooms.

Prior to this appointment, Mr Dörr was general manager of Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Sultanate of Oman, a luxury five-star resort complex comprising three hotels since 2016.

In the following 10 years, he moved across other Shangri-La properties in major South East Asian destinations, including Bangkok, Singapore, Taipei, Mactan and Jakarta.
