The Peninsula Bangkok is pleased to welcome Mr Joseph Sampermans as the new General Manager of the hotel. Sampermans returns to the Thai capital after almost a decade, having been Director of Food & Beverage at The Peninsula Bangkok from 2004 to 2007.
A Dutch national, Sampermans graduated from Limburg Zuyd University in the Netherlands with a bachelor’s degree in finance. Before joining Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited (HSH), the owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels, he undertook leadership roles at international luxury hotels in Cambodia, Germany and Thailand.
Joseph Sampermans joined HSH in 2004 to take up the role of Director of Food & Beverage at The Peninsula Bangkok. In 2007, he moved to Japan to become the pre-opening Executive Assistant Manager, Food & Beverage at The Peninsula Tokyo, and one year later he was promoted to the post of Resident Manager.
In 2010, Sampermans transferred to The Peninsula Hong Kong, the group’s flagship hotel. Two years later, in October 2012, he moved to Mainland China to oversee the landmark transformation of The Peninsula Beijing, which was unveiled in June 2016.
“I am delighted to be returning to Thailand, which is one of my favourite countries to live, work and travel. During my previous time at The Peninsula Bangkok, I learned a great deal about Thailand’s culture, traditions and cuisine, and about the hotel’s key source markets. I look forward to continuing the excellent work of the team that has made The Peninsula Bangkok a beloved hotel in the Thai capital for guests from across Asia and around the world,” says Joseph Sampermans, General Manager of The Peninsula Bangkok.
