Bangkok--23 Jan--Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok

Thirayuth Chirathivat, Chief Executive Officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts, has announced the appointment of James Robert Wilson as General Manager of Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok, effective from now.

Mr. Wilson is a British national and a graduate of the Hotel Management and a postgraduate diploma in Law & Administration from Ulster University in United Kingdom. He has almost 30 years' hotel experience in Europe, Middle East and Asia.

Mr. Wilson has worked as General Manager at Pathumwan Princess Hotel Bangkok from 2000 – 2006 before being promoted to be Vice President of Operations at Dusit International (Corporate Head Office in Bangkok). In 2009, he has transferred to manage Dusit Thani Dubai as General Manager until 2013, then starting his career at Millennium Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi as General Manager until 2016.

Mr. Wilson was previously General Manager at Centara Grand West Bay Hotel Doha in Qatar for the pre-opening since early 2016 prior to being promoted as General Manager of Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok.

Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok was the first hotel to be opened by Centara Hotels & Resorts, and is located near the elevated highway system, the underground Mass Rapid Transit and the BTS Skytrain, thereby ensuring that any district within the city is very easily accessible. The five-star hotel features 565 guest rooms and suites, event space, 9 restaurants and bars, award-winning Spa Cenvaree, fitness centre and swimming pool.

A covered walkway provides a direct link to the adjacent Central Plaza shopping complex – one of the biggest of its kind in Bangkok with 300 shops, boutiques, restaurants and multiplex cinema. Delegates to events staged at the Bangkok Convention Centre Hall (BCC Hall) can walk to and from the hotel through the same air-conditioned thoroughfare.
