An internal promotion for a highly-regarded industry maestro, Harry is renowned for his disruptive thinking that has continually generated creativity and innovation across business lines. A career built upon visionary concepts, he is best encapsulated by his tenacity to change corporations through purpose and employee empowerment.
Taking over the reins at a fast-growing company during the most challenging time in the global travel and hospitality sector is hardly for the faint-hearted, but Harry has already rallied his enthusiastic executive team and is leading the charge from the front. During the past 12 months, Cross Hotels & Resorts has been a hive of activity as the foundations are put in place for future growth once international border controls return to normal. Typified by its different and dynamic approach to socially integrate into the markets where it operates, the customer-focused company has several major announcements in the pipeline.
“In essence, my key focus is on growing the business. I believe we have the right people and strategy to take the business to the next level. We are looking at pushing the boundaries from our traditional base in Southeast Asia and going further abroad. If this crisis has taught us anything it is agility. From that perspective, we are now able to quickly tailor a whole suite of new options and fresh solutions that cater to the specific individual needs of potential owners,” said Thaliwal.
