Singapore, 7 December 2016 – Pan Pacific Hotels Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Benny Chung as General Manager, PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road.
A Singaporean national, Benny’s career in the hospitality industry started at the former Hyatt Regency Singapore.

Benny has gained reputable experience in leading teams at luxury brands including Mandarin Oriental and Langham, and was most recently General Manager of Langham Place Xiamen, having been transferred there after a successful stint with the former Eaton Luxe Nanqiao in Shanghai.
“Benny brings vast hospitality experience across room sales, marketing, and F&B and we are delighted to have him as a valuable addition to our operational leadership team here in Singapore. More than that, he is a very passionate hotelier who delivers heartfelt hospitality. We are confident that Benny will drive the performance of PARKROYAL on Kitchener as an iconic hotel in the cultural precinct of Little India, and further cement the brand’s “Local Connection” positioning where guests are connected to the best the area has to offer,” says Erik Anderouard, Senior Vice President, Operations, Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
