Howard Hotels Group has appointed Richard Saul to helm its Taiwan flagship, the Howard Plaza Hotel Taipei.
The new general manager comes with experience leading other five-star hotels in the Asia Pacific region, including more than 20 years at Marriott International, Managing Director of both the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and the JW Marriott Hotel in Beijing, as well as JW Marriott in Seoul, Korea and Marriott in Manila, Philippines.
The Australian hospitality stalwart moves to Taiwan following his most recent role managing the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai.
"Proudly Liao family owned, the Howard Plaza Hotel Taipei is gearing up for an expected strong recovery post-Covid. I very much look forward to being part of that," said Saul.
