Raffles Hotels & Resorts is changing things up with Simon Hirst who moves to Raffles Singapore as General Manager. He will be replaced by Christoph Ganster at The Seychelles. Hirst has a distinguished career as a hotelier, beginning with the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, having stints with The Four Seasons and spending 15 years with Campbell Gray Hotels. Ganster has worked with Raffles Hotels in the past and the chain is happy to have him back.
“I am delighted to announce the news of Simon’s move to Raffles Singapore. Simon’s high regard within the industry and his extensive international hotel experience speaks for itself - as do the results of the past eighteen months he has spent with us in the Seychelles. I am more than confident that Simon will be an exceptional custodian of Raffles Singapore and do justice to the legacy of such an iconic property, especially in this, its 125th anniversary year.”
