THE 405-room Days Hotel Singapore at Zhongshan Park and 384-room Ramada Singapore at Zhongshan Park have been busy building up their talent pool for their respective openings in December 2012 and February 2013 (TTG Asia e-Daily, March 14, 2012).
Tony Cousens has been appointed pre-opening general manager of the two properties, while management for the human resources, sales & marketing, revenue, F&B and rooms departments are already in place.
Cousens brings with him over 30 years of hotel management experience in North America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, including previous stints with Le Meridien, Four Seasons and Jumeirah. He also led the successful relaunch of Marina Mandarin Singapore in 2005.
“Our immediate task now is to recruit associates to join us as part of our pre-opening team for both hotels," said Cousens. "We are looking for people who will come and shape the future of the two international hotels within the Wyndham family in Singapore."
As part of its recruitment efforts, Days Hotel will be hosting a career fair from August 17-18 at the Drama Centre Foyer of the National Library Board building in Singapore.
