Previously the Vice President and Area General Manager for South Thailand, Pierre-Andre in his new position takes on added leadership responsibilities in the Maldives and Vietnam. ONYX currently operates Amari Havodda Maldives and is preparing for the early 2018 opening of OZO Hoi An. The company is in active negotiations with partners on potential new developments in both destinations.

Hailing from a family of hoteliers and restaurateurs, Switzerland-born Mr Pelletier joined the company in 1993. He has served as General Manager of Amari Pattaya, Amari Watergate Bangkok and more recently, the group’s flagship Amari Phuket, where he will continue to be based.

Mr Cumming has been elevated from his previous role as Vice President and Area General Manager for Bangkok. In his expanded role, David will support the company’s future growth in Malaysia, where ONYX has one newly-launched Amari and three additional hotels in the pipeline, and Laos, the location of three new Amari properties currently under development.

A 25-year veteran in hospitality, Mr Cumming has been with the company since 2004 and has been General Manager at both Amari Pattaya and Amari Watergate Bangkok. He also held a corporate leadership role as Vice President of Operational Development at ONYX Hospitality Group, providing his wealth of industry expertise to new hotel openings. Mr Cumming will continue to be based at Amari Watergate Bangkok, location of the group’s global head office.

“This is an exciting time in the ongoing development and expansion of ONYX Hospitality Group, and also the year that we enter new markets like Malaysia, Vietnam and Laos,” said Douglas Martell, President & CEO, ONYX Hospitality Group.

“The expansion of both Pierre-Andre’s and David roles is an important step towards enhancing our commitment within these markets and paving the way for our future growth.”

Based in Bangkok, ONYX Hospitality Group has a growing regional portfolio of 44 operating properties across three core brands in eight countries. The Group has a robust development pipeline of 21 new properties in markets such as Vietnam, Malaysia and Australia, and has set a target of having 99 hotels by 2024 as part of its journey towards being the best medium-sized hospitality player in the region.
