Lim, who has more than 15 years of hospitality management experience, most recently served as the Executive Assistant Manager at Millennium Hongqiao Hotel in Shanghai. Prior to the Millennium Hongqiao, Lim was the Director of Catering and Conference Services at The Portman Ritz Carlton, Shanghai and has held other managerial positions at some of the finest properties in Asia, including The Regent Shanghai, Shangri-la Hotel Singapore, Grand Hyatt Singapore, Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore and Tung Lok Group.
