Jorgen Christensen appointed General Manager of Marco Polo Changzhou

HONG KONG, 2015-11-4 — /Travel PR News/ — Marco Polo Hotels has named Jorgen Christensen as General Manager of Marco Polo Changzhou.

Jorgen has been in the hotel industry for over 25 years and has held senior positions with highly regarded hotel companies such as Accor, Shangri-La and Langham. He has effectively opened four luxury hotels and repositioned four others, resulting in positive changes for the properties and increased business with related returns for the owners.

He is equipped with solid managerial experience acquired from working in different parts of the world including Europe, United States, China and Hong Kong. Jorgen’s most recent position was General Manager of the award winning Mira Moon Hotel Hong Kong. His first stint in Hong Kong was back in 1996, where he witnessed the last bastion of the British Empire change hands prior to the region’s handover back to China.

In 2001, Jorgen took a year off to pursue his passion for Chinese culture and interest to learn Mandarin, enrolling in Beijing’s renowned Tsinghua University. Now less than 15 years later, Jorgen is delighted to be back in China and based in the beautiful Marco Polo Changzhou property that is surrounded by 19 acres of lush green garden. It is located less than one hour by high-speed train from Shanghai.

As the first of many Chief Business Managers, Jorgen’s strong Sales & Marketing background will drive operational excellence that will lead to revenue and profit growth. “I am excited to join the Marco Polo family and I look forward to using my past experience to help drive business to our urban oasis in Changzhou,” said Jorgen. “I encourage everyone to visit and experience the beauty and attractiveness associated with our hotel that is ideal as a meetings venue or a corporate retreat complemented by our exceptional service team.”
