A highly-skilled hospitality professional, Daryn brings a wealth of experience to the role, having joined Marriott International for the first time in 2005 as Director of Food & Beverage at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa. He has gone on to become one the company’s most highly-regarded executives, said a release announcing his appointment.
Having moved to Southeast Asia to take up senior roles at Marriott hotels in Manila and Bangkok, Daryn achieved his first General Manager’s role in 2013 at Marriott Executive Apartments Sathorn Vista, Bangkok.
