Kurt Otto Wehinger has been appointed as the General Manager of Pan Pacific Singapore, a part of Pan Pacific Hotels Group, with effect from Monday, 10 September. Kurt was transferred from Australia, where he was the General Manager for PARKROYAL Darling Harbour and Area General Manager for Oceania for the past two and a half years.

A hospitality veteran with more than 35 years of experience, Kurt is not unfamiliar with Singapore, as he was the General Manager of Marina Mandarin Singapore for seven years prior to joining Pan Pacific Hotels Group. He was also the first General Manager of Kempinski Beijing Lufthansa Hotel and Grand Millennium Beijing, a flagship property under Millennium & Copthorne which opened just prior to the Beijing Olympics.

An Austrian national, Kurt’s career has taken him to various destinations in Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and the US, where he managed hotels under international brands including Kempinski and Intercontinental.

Kurt has accumulated numerous accolades throughout his career, notably, he was World Luxury Hotel Awards’ Global General Manager of the Year in 2015, Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards Singapore’s General Manager of the Year from 2011 to 2013 and City Weekend’s Best Foreign Hotelier in China, 2009.

In his role as General Manager of Pan Pacific Singapore, Kurt will focus on developing its associates, products and services to deliver a world class luxury hospitality experience.

Neo Soon Hup, Senior Vice-President, Pan Pacific Hotels Group “We warmly welcome Kurt back to Singapore, where he will now helm Pan Pacific Singapore, our flagship under the Pan Pacific brand. During his tenure as General Manager of PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, the hotel won many national accolades including Upscale Hotel of
the Year for two consecutive years. Kurt oversaw our hotels in Australia through an intense period of redevelopment and transformation, including a refurbishment of Pan Pacific Perth and a new wing extension at PARKROYAL Parramatta, as well as the opening of Pan Pacific Melbourne. With Kurt’s extensive track record of operational
excellence and performance, we are confident he will lead Pan Pacific Singapore to even greater heights, and for the hotel to continue to set the benchmark in providing gracious and dependable hospitality which our guests trust.”
