Dorsett Hospitality has made appointment changes to two of its hotels in Malaysia.

In her new appointment, Toh will continue to drive strategic business directions of Dorsett Grand Subang, as well as oversee the three hotels under the Silka Hotels brand in Malaysia – Silka Cheras Kuala Lumpur, Silka Maytower Kuala Lumpur and Silka Johor Bahru.

 

She began her hospitality career with the Holiday Inn Penang before moving on to the then Regent Hotel Kuala Lumpur (rebranded as Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur) and Parkroyal Hotels & Resorts Group.

 

Toh then took up her first general manager position with Dorsett Kuala Lumpur before being promoted to area general manager in July 2011 to oversee Dorsett Kuala Lumpur, Silka Maytower Kuala Lumpur and Silka Cheras Kuala Lumpur. She also sits on the Board of Malaysian Association of Hotels as honorary secretary-general (2016-2018).

 

Meanwhile, taking over from Toh at Dorsett Kuala Lumpur is Adele Ang in her first general manager role.

 

Prior to joining Dorsett Kuala Lumpur, Adele was the area director of sales for Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur for seven years. Ang began her career in the hospitality industry as a statistician with the Pan Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur, followed by positions including director of sales at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur and director of business development at Sunway Resort Hotels.
