It is with sincere gratitude for all his accomplishments that we are announcing the retirement of senior manager Bob Guy. After nine years at Destination Asia that involved opening the Singapore office in 2010 and then Malaysia in 2011, Bob has decided it is time to conclude his active role in the Asian inbound, DMC, meeting and events and cruise business segments to enjoy retirement.
Bob’s career spans more than 50 years in the travel industry with active roles in the United States, the Fiji Islands, Australia and numerous Asian countries including Singapore where he was been based for nearly 40 years. His career in the DMC segment began in Fiji in 1973 and concluded as managing director of Destination Asia in Malaysia and previously Singapore where he served alongside colleagues to develop innovative tours, shore excursions and new destinations.
In addition to company activities he served as advisor to several governments including those in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, including years as a director of both the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board and the Sentosa Development Corporation.
Bob is succeeded in Destination Asia Malaysia by Sadie Yeoh, General Manager, who has led a team in the office since 2011. Sadie will drive forward new initiatives to further develop the key sectors as she oversees all business activity from the now four operational offices located across Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Langkawi & Kota Kinabalu).
