Shanghai, 22 March 2018 – ONYX Hospitality Group, one of the region’s leading hotel management companies, is enhancing its commitment to China by strengthening its Shanghai-based team structure. In addition to creating a new Greater China regional base in Shanghai, the company has appointed Gina Wo to a newly-created role as Senior Vice President and Head of Greater China, effective 26 March 2018.
Joining ONYX Hospitality Group after over 16 years at InterContinental Hotels Group, Gina will oversee all aspects of the company’s ongoing growth and expansion in one of the world’s fastest growing economies. To be based in Shanghai and reporting directly to President and CEO Douglas Martell, Gina will focus on further growth through the localisation of the company’s long-term strategic road map, to solidify the positioning of ONYX Hospitality Group as the hospitality player of choice among travellers, team members, investors and partners in the Greater China region.
One of Gina’s first priorities at ONYX Hospitality Group would be to increase the company’s corporate talent capabilities in Greater China by reviewing the existing manning and structure, as well as strengthening the company’s regional operations, hotel openings and commercial expertise in order to ensure its sustained and continued growth in line with robust portfolio expansion in the coming years. The Shanghai regional headquarters will be complemented by a satellite office in Hong Kong, with team members dedicated to supporting the company’s Hong Kong presence.
This strategic move follows significant recent China development wins for ONYX Hospitality Group, including a China-wide strategic partnership with Sincere Holdings Group for both companies to exclusively develop and open multiple Shama serviced apartment properties across 12 key cities across China. Amari, the company’s flagship hotel brand, also launched its first hotel in China in 2017 with the opening of Amari Yangshuo in Guilin.
“The importance of China goes far beyond the market being a huge growth destination for new properties, as the country is also one of our top source markets for travellers to our hotels across
the Asia-Pacific region,” said Douglas Martell, President & CEO, ONYX Hospitality Group. “Gina comes to ONYX Hospitality Group following an illustrious tenure at IHG, and I am confident that with her combined development and operational expertise, leadership strengths and wealth of industry contacts, she will lead us towards greater success in China.”
Based in Bangkok, ONYX Hospitality Group has a growing regional portfolio of 45 operating properties across three core brands in eight countries. The Group has a robust development pipeline of over 20 new properties in markets such as China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia, and has set
a target of having 99 hotels open by 2024 as part of its journey towards being the best medium-sized hospitality player in the region.

Over 32% of the sales outside of Bangkok metropolitan are in the south with Phuket dominating 30 per cent of the total regional sales.
“We have been very encouraged by our growth across the country and the south region is a very important market for Stiebel Eltron. We are focusing efforts on supporting this growth by improving our network of marketing and sales channels. This year we hope to add even more distribution channels in the south as well as more potential service centers,” said Roland Hoehn, Managing Director of Stiebel Eltron Asia.
The award-winning company continues to develop new product lines to meet the needs of Thai consumers. Stiebel Eltron recently unveiled its Stiebel Boost, the quiet but powerful water pump.
The sleek water pump is crafted with the German engineering standards with award-winning design reputation. The Stiebel Boost’s contemporary design will elevate and enhance any household exterior design. Moreover, the water pump is designed to provide powerful performance without the disturbing loud noises.
The Stiebel Boost comes in 4 different models including 3A-CS (300 watts), 4A-CS (450 watts), 6A-CS (600 watts) and 7A-CS (750 watts). Each model retails for THB7,990, THB8,990, THB10,990 and THB12, 990 consecutively.
Innovation at your finger tips
Among Stiebel Eltron’s new product line-up is the WL series water heater, which features innovative LCD touchscreen, memory function and SPA setting. The WL series is Stiebel Eltron’s first ever model to feature the revolutionary touchscreen which took three years to conceptualize, test and certify and guaranteed to provide the best shower experience.
