“This award is a major highlight of my career and it reflects in part the passion and dedication of our team in Bangkok to pursue the goals and objectives set by the Wyndham organisation. I was deeply moved by this award and by the very kind and sincere words of congratulation that I received from the hotel owners in Thailand. It was certainly an unforgettable honour to attend such an important Wyndham conference in the presence of two former US presidents,” said Klaus Sennik.
“In Bangkok we continue to focus upon environmental issues as part of the Wyndham green programme and we are proud to be successful standard bearers for the Wyndham organisation,” he added.
Klaus Sennik is an enthusiastic member of the Skal International travel and tourism networking organisation and this latest achievement has won praise from Skal’s Thailand President Dale Lawrence. “This award is richly deserved. Klaus Sennik has enjoyed considerable success in promoting the hotel as an attractive and compelling choice for business and leisure travellers. I am sure that all Skal members in Thailand will join me in extending to Klaus our sincere congratulations,” said Mr Lawrence.
