My new role at The Lancaster Landmark Hotel Company will allow me to return to the hotel business and my passion for running hotels on a day to day basis.”
Tosaporn Sihanatkathakul, executive director at The Landmark Bangkok says: “It is with great pleasure that I announce that Fergus Stewart will be joining The Lancaster Landmark Hotel Company. I remember the time Fergus was Hotel Manager from 1999 to 2001 at The Landmark London and the positive impression he made to team members.
