Joseph Sampermans has returned to The Peninsula Bangkok as general manager, having been with the property as director of F&B nearly a decade earlier.
A Dutch national, Sampermans first joined Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels (HSH), the owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels, in 2004 as director of F&B at The Peninsula Bangkok. In 2007, he moved to Japan as pre-opening executive assistant manager, food and beverage at The Peninsula Tokyo, before being promoted to resident manager a year later.
Sampermans' time with the group continued with his 2010 posting to The Peninsula Hong Kong. He then transferred to China in 2012 to oversee The Peninsula Beijing, which was unveiled in June 2016.
