After 15 successful years as General Manager and Managing Director at Trisara, Phuket, Mr. Anthony Lark will step up from his current role in January 2020. He will be promoted to a new corporate role of Business Development Director and Executive Director of Montara Hospitality Group, which owns and manages Trisara.
During his successful tenure as Trisara’s General Manager, Mr. Lark has been instrumental in positioning Trisara as one of the top luxury resorts in the world. He led the Trisara team to earn recognitions including Robb Report “Best of the Best”, Conde Nast Traveler “Gold List”, Gallivanter’s Guide “Best Resort Worldwide”.
Mr. Lark’s exceptional care for guests and colleagues has been recognised by many accolades throughout his career. In 2019, discerning readers of the Gallivanter’s Guide voted him as one of the Best General Managers Worldwide.
“Since the opening of Trisara in 2005, Anthony’s passion and leadership have always inspired colleagues to take joy in providing our most sincere hospitality to the guests. He has been and will continue to be an integral part of our proud family,” said Mr. Narong Pattamasaevi, Chairman of Montara Hospitality Group.
Anthony Lark will be succeeded by Karim Irrgang, a luxury hospitality veteran whose international leadership role include opening Resident Manager at the ultra-luxe Cheval Blanc LVMH, Randheli, Maldives, and General Manager at Banyan Tree Tamouda Bay, Morocco, the first all-pool-villa resort in Morocco. Throughout his career, Karim played leading roles to successfully develop teams of caring hospitality professionals who exceed the highest expectations of luxury travelers daily.
“In addition to world-class luxury resort leadership experiences, Karim will bring an incredible level of empathy and passion. His leadership will empower the Trisara team to build upon our success and to innovate new ways to bring joy to our customers,” said Mr. Kittisak Pattamasaevi, CEO of Montara Hospitality Group.
Trisara launched in Phuket in 2005 as the first luxury all-pool-villa beach resort. Its low-density all-pool-villa development model offers an unmatched sense of privacy for luxury travelers. Anthony Lark’s promotion and Karim Irrgang’s arrival usher in a new chapter for TRISARA with the promise of innovation and growth for the brand.
