Appointed General Manager
At Courtyard by Marriott Penang, Malaysia
Subash started his hospitality career in the kitchen as a chef in Mumbai at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and has worked in several top culinary positions during his time with Starwood Hotels and Resorts across Australia and China in the early 90s. In 2007, he moved on to Japan as Executive Assistant Manager at Hilton Narita. China always had a special place in his heart, and he returned to Beijing to continue rising the ranks in several large hotels namely The Regent Beijing and The St Regis Beijing.
In 2011, he was posted for his first position as a General Manager at the Sheraton Haikou Resort. Three years later, Subash returned home to lead the team at the Palazzo Versace in Queensland and subsequently back again to China at the Sheraton Huizhou Beach Resort.
Looking at places to relocate attracted him to the island of Penang, known as Malaysia's Pearl of the Orient. Great food, easy access and all around a friendly city, he recently made Penang his permanent home. He now leads the team at Courtyard by Marriott Penang which is the first Courtyard in Malaysia.
With over 3 decades in the hospitality industry, Subash is now working closely with KDU University College to educate the younger generation to develop skill sets needed for the hospitality industry.
