Past President
Ted Teng
I have had a wonderful 30+ year career in the global hospitality industry in North America, Hawaii, and Asia Pacific driving unit and company growth with some of the most prominent brands in the world. I have been engaged in revitalizing business units and creating new organizations to generate greater enterprise value through organizational alignment, development and execution of revenue and unit growth strategies, restructure resources, and improve operating efficiency. I have taken part in the development of many landmark hotel projects. I have guided companies through crisis and survived to see better markets. I have achieved many successes as well as learned many difficult lessons through failures. I have enjoyed the business relationships I have developed with many hotel owners, business partners, and colleagues. I am equally proud to have contributed to the careers of the people I have led.

I am especially excited about the opportunity to lead The Leading Hotels of the World. The unique ownership structure, global scale, and truly world class properties attracted me to this. What I am most energized is to create the right future business model for this 85-year old institution. This is also a great opportunity for me to work closer with European businesses.

Specialties: Hospitality Industry Business Strategies, Operations, Organizational Development, Development, Brand Marketing, Sales and Distribution, Financial Management, Investments, Management Contracts, Joint Ventures, and Asset Management in North America and Asia Pacific.
