Previously, Ms Yong was the director of sales and marketing at Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts’ Regional Sales Office in Beijing. Prior to this, she was assistant director of
sales at Traders Hotel, Singapore. Ms Yong is no stranger to Shangri-La’s Rasa
Sentosa Resort, Singapore, as she was a member of the resort’s opening team in 1993,
and spent seven years at the resort in the Front Office and Sales and Marketing
Department. A native Singaporean, the 44-year-old is an alumnus of the National
University of Singapore and Catholic Junior College.
“I am excited to be back in Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort, Singapore, as I have
been away from Singapore for the past 10 years. The resort always has a special place
in my heart, as I have witnessed its ‘birth’ and now see it in a different light after its ‘rebirth.’ I hope to continue the good work of my predecessor, and lead the resort to
greater heights and recognition,” said Ms Yong on her return to the resort.
Ms Yong replaces Mr. Ogie Manuel, who, after 10 years at the resort, will be taking on
regional responsibilities as regional director of sales and marketing for Shangri-La’s
