Hilton has announced its move into new Asia Pacific headquarters, located at the Centennial Tower in the heart of the Singapore’s vibrant central business district. The move comes amid a period of rapid growth for the company, which was recently named Asia’s best multinational workplace global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and celebrates its 100th anniversary in May 2019.
Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton stated, “We are beginning a brand-new chapter for our company as we enter our 100th year anniversary. With Asia Pacific being increasingly at the forefront in this Golden Age of Travel, our goal continues to be the leading and most hospitable company in the world. With the move, we are creating a more inspirational and inclusive environment for our Team Members. In line with our momentum of creating a Great Place to Work for all, our office will not just be a place to work, it will be a place we can call home.”
Having doubled its footprint in the Asia Pacific region in recent years, Hilton now boasts of more than 750 hotels open and under development in the region and for the first time will open more than 100 hotels a year in 2019. This expansion will be supported by the company’s corporate workforce housed in its new APAC headquarters.
From the new headquarters, Hilton manages its five sub-regions of Asia Pacific, from India to Japan, China, and Australasia. Centennial Tower is also home to the company’s Southeast Asia office. The new Singapore office complements similar moves in other corporate locations, with a brand-new space in Delhi, now located at the premium Horizon Towers office complex. Similarly, Hilton’s corporate offices in Shanghai and Japan have also undergone recent expansion.
