Christopher Cribbs has been appointed the new Cluster General Manager of Itz Time Hua Hin Pool Villas by Cross Collection, an all-pool villa resort in a tranquil setting in Hua Hin, and Haven’t Met Bangkok Silom by Cross Collection, a contemporary city hotel located in central Bangkok.
According to a press statement, Cribbs, an American citizen, has 25 years of experience managing hospitality operations, including cruise ships, 5-star luxury resorts, and boutique hotels. He has a background in management and marketing, and analyses business processes to boost sales and satisfy customers. From 20-room boutique hotels to 1,000-room metropolitan hotels, he has played a key role in pre-opening operations for a variety of different properties.
He graduated from the University of Miami in Florida with a Bachelor’s in Hospitality Management and from Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management in New York with a Master’s in Business Administration.
With its prime location at the base of the BTS Skytrain Chong Nonsi steps and the appeal it will have across a wide spectrum of people who prefer to explore Bangkok, “Haven’t Met Bangkok Silom represents a potential to build this Cross Collection brand and property,” says Cribbs, the press statement adds.
And for Itz Time Hua Hin Pool Villas by Cross Collection, which are in a prime beachfront location and come in one, two, and three-bedroom options, this is a wonderful getaway with potential as a site for incentives and events. This is an exciting moment to be in Thailand because international travel has recently resumed there and domestic tourism is booming. He has demonstrated proficiency in marketing, branding, business operations, and strategy.
More than 26 hotels are currently operated by Cross Hotels and Resorts under the five separate brands of Cross, Cross Vibe, Away, Lumen, and Cross Collection throughout Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan.
