Minor Hotels has appointed William Costley as Senior Vice President of Operations for Asia.

Costley, who is based in Bangkok, commenced the position in September, following a 32-year career with Hilton.

In his most recent role as Senior Vice President Operations, based in Dubai, he oversaw Hilton’s operations in the Arabian Peninsula and Turkey region. Prior to that, he was based in Singapore as Hilton’s Vice President Operations for Southeast Asia and also spent seven years in India.

In this role, Costley will oversee all Minor Hotels brands, including Anantara, Avani, Oaks, Tivoli, NH Hotels and NH Collection throughout Asia.

“As Minor Hotels continues on its path of regional and global expansion, we couldn’t have asked for a more experienced addition to our Asia team,” said Minor Hotels CEO and Minor International Group CEO, Dillip Rajakarier.

“William’s understanding of Asia’s hospitality and tourism sectors, his global outlook and stellar operational credentials make him the perfect choice for this crucial leadership position. We look forward to working together as the company branches out into medical tourism and brings new brands from our global portfolio to Asia Pacific.”
