Thailand – 19 December 2011 : Aloysius Michael has been appointed the newly created position of Corporate Director of Rooms for Dusit International, effective immediately. He is responsible for all Dusit properties' room operations and standards as well as security matters. He was previously the Resident Manager of Dusit Thani Pattaya.

A Singaporean, Aloysius has an extensive background in the hotel industry, having held both operational and management roles at the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore where he began his career in hospitality more than eight years ago. Prior to joining Dusit International, he had expanded his wealth of experience in Rooms, Sales and Marketing as well as Human Resources. This earned him the position of Human Resource Manager for the 2008 pre-opening of the Dusit Residence Dubai Marina, the company's first branded residence outside of Thailand. Not long after, he was promoted as the Resident Manager of the property and his main responsibility focused on overseeing its entire operations. Three years later, he was moved to Thailand for his posting in Pattaya.

Note to Editor: Dusit International has more than 60 years experience in the hotel and hospitality field. Founded in 1948 by Honorary Chairperson, Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, whose first hotel was the Princess on Bangkok's New Road; Dusit has since acquired a unique portfolio of hotels, building upon Thai culture and tradition to create a personalised welcome for all guests, made distinctive under the Dusit brand promise: the delivery of an 'experience that enlivens the individual spirit no matter what the journey.'

Dusit International comprises five hotel brands: Dusit Thani Hotels & Resorts, Dusit's second generation dusitD2 hotels & resorts, Dusit Princess Hotels & Resorts, Dusit Devarana Hotels & Resorts, and Dusit Residence Serviced Apartments. It also operates its own signature Devarana Spa.
