With demonstrated leadership strengths and proven ability to manage multiple responsibilities in a fast-paced environment with critical deadlines, it was time to combine Strength, Passion and Contribution. Since early 2016 this brought me to my new role as Chief Executive Office of Hotel Yangon Group. Inspired by the group vision and room to improve its unique properties situated in Yangon, Putao, Myitkyina, Mandalay and development of a beach resort in the Irrawaddy division, I believe my new role is more of making a transformation meaningful.
