VIETNAM, 24 September 2018 – JLL Hotels & Hospitality is expending its Ho Chi Minh City office and has announced that Hanh To, Senior Associate, Strategic Advisory & Asset Management, has joined the hotel team with an aim to grow advisory business in Vietnam.
Ms Hanh's career in the hospitality and real estate market spans over five years, having held various positions with international consulting firms. She will focus on a wide range of consulting assignments including market and feasibility study, valuation, asset management and operator selection of hospitality properties across the country.
Mr Mike Batchelor, CEO Asia of JLL Hotels & Hospitality, says: "I'm delighted to add another team member with complementary skills to the existing team on the ground in Vietnam. With the group's strategy to boost our client service offering, we hope to help owners and developers drive the most value from their assets through applying our broad range of services including valuation, brokerage, asset management and advisory."
Prior to Ms Hanh's arrival, Ms Trang Vo, Vice President, Investment Sales, joined the Hotels and Hospitality Group in April 2017. With experience spanning eleven years, she has helped successfully develop JLL's investment sales business in the country at a time when we see unprecedented levels of foreign and domestic demand for hotel assets.
"Vietnam is a key strategic growth market for the overall success of our business and the growth we have seen in the market has made it necessary to expand our service offering," says Adam Bury, Senior Vice President of JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group. "With our recent transaction in Cambodia of the two flagship Raffles by Lodgis Hospitality Holdings - Raffles Hotel Le Royal Phnom Penh and the Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor Siem Reap, we remain particularly confident about South East Asia's tourism and economic potential - Vietnam is a central pillar to this growth which remains very much in-vogue with foreign investors".
