ANANTARA Hotels, Resorts & Spas has appointed Francis Zimmerman as director of operations for Thailand, along with new general managers in hotels in Bangkok and the Maldives.

 

The freshly created position of director of operations for Thailand will provide operational leadership to Anantara’s portfolio of ten properties in the country. Reporting directly to the CEO, Zimmerman will be based at Anantara Bangkok Sathorn, where he will also take on the role of general manager.

 

Zimmerman joined Minor Hotel Group, owning company of Anantara, in November 2008 as general manager of Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa, and oversaw its conversion to Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa.

 

Taking the reins as general manager of Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa is Claudia Pronk, who transfers from a role in the Maldives as cluster general manager of Anantara Dhigu Resort & Spa, Anantara Veli Resort & Spa and sister hotel Naladhu. Pronk joined Anantara in 2009 from The Grand Mauritian Hotel in Mauritius, where she was general manager.

 

Jeffrey F. Seward has been appointed to replace Pronk as cluster general manager in the Maldives. He joins Anantara from Taj Hotels, where he was general manager of the Taj Boston in the US.
