As one of Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s most experienced general managers, Losi has been with the Group for 15 years. He was first appointed General Manager of PARKROYAL Penang Resort in 2002 before taking helm at Pan Pacific Orchard, Singapore, and subsequently oversaw PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s SGD20 million (USD14.7 million) makeover before moving on to PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur.

Apart from his drive for performance excellence, Losi is known amongst his colleagues and the teams he has managed over the years for his personable leadership style.

Losi will now lead PARKROYAL Yangon, a 333-room hotel that underwent an 18-month long refurbishment in 2016. It is also located in the Central Business District and within walking distance to iconic landmarks such as the Shwedagon Pagoda and Bogyoke Aung San Market.

In 2012, Owen was made Food & Beverage director at Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort and earned several promotions before becoming its general manager in 2016.

Owen is known for his ability to nurture close ties with stakeholders while driving the performance of the property. Owen’s dedication and constant innovation has helped to create many success stories and bring about guest satisfaction and loyalty at the resort. Prior to joining Pan Pacific Hotels Group, he was with The Savoy London and the Covent Garden Hotel London.

His latest role will see him taking charge of PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur, a 426-room hotel in the heart of the bustling Malaysian capital with easy access to the city’s business, shopping and entertainment districts, as well as city landmark Petronas Twin Towers.
