HRS welcomes new management team based in Singapore

SINGAPORE – In view of global expansion plans, HRS, the global hotel solutions provider, is welcoming the New Year with a new management team in its Asia Pacific region, based in the Singapore office.
Emmanuel Ebray is now Managing Director in charge of Southeast Asia, India and South Korea, seated in HRS’ regional headquarters in Singapore. He was most recently Managing Director of the office in France since early 2011, when he first joined the company.
Emmanuel began his career in logistics consulting and production in France, Italy and Morocco with industrial groups such as Bic, Boiron and Yves Rocher. He brings to HRS his vast experiences in management strategy, marketing and sales as a consultant in a variety of sectors with high-profile clients such as Renault, Peugeot, Orange, HSBC and Accor, and Sales Director at Choice Hotel Europe. He is also a graduate of the prestigious Ecole centrale de Lyon.
Joining him is Carol Chia as Head of Corporate Solutions. Carol has an extensive track record in regional sales and business development in the United States of America and Asia Pacific, having worked with technology giants such as Nokia and Hewlett Packard. She holds an MBA and Bachelor of Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University.
With HRS aggressively expanding in the region, a further two management positions have been added. They are the roles of Director of Global Partnerships APAC, helmed by Roelant Horree, and Head of Sourcing APAC, filled by Markus Flamman.
Roelant has been with HRS since September 2015 as Director, Global Partnerships, based in Europe. He has now relocated to Singapore to lead partnerships development in the Asia Pacific. In his new role, he will be tasked with developing and maintaining relationships with TMCs, OBTs and GDSs in the corporate travel space. Prior to joining HRS, Roelant worked at various global TMCs primarily in global strategic sales and global client management positions.
Markus had relocated to Singapore from Netherlands 10 years ago. Since then, he had been heading procurement departments of various banking companies. He also has experience doing procurement for the oil and gas industry. Markus completed his Masters in the University of Amsterdam. Emmanuel, Carol, Roelant and Markus joins Alex Tan, Head of Hotel Solutions, and Santosh Kumar, Head of Corporate Solutions India, in leading the HRS team to better service and cater to the needs of HRS’ corporate clients in the region.
