Minor International proudly announces the executive appointment of Peter Carmichael as Senior Vice President, Anantara. Responsible for the performance of all Anantara properties worldwide, as well as for 30 projects in the pipeline over the next 5 to 10 years, the appointment underpins the Anantara brand's continued profitability and its ability to deliver on its formidable expansion plans.
Peter joins Minor from the Intercontinental Hotel Group where he held the corporate role of Vice President Operations South East Asia & Maldives, and was responsible for hotels in various markets including the Maldives, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, and more recently Thailand. Earlier in his career he held operational leadership roles with the Shangri-La Group in Indonesia and China.

"I am delighted that we continue to attract the next generation of industry leaders as we position ourselves for the future".
