Brian Moodie.

Brian Moodie has been appointed as the owner’s representative of the Sala Hospitality Group to support the expansion of the company’s two primary brands – Sala Resorts and Spas and Sala boutique – with two new properties in Thailand in the pipeline for 2018.

The 38-year hotel veteran joined the group 15 years ago as the pre-opening general manager of Sala Samui Choengmon Beach Resort, before being promoted to vice president hotel operations during Sala’s first round of expansion into Phuket and Khaoyai.

The group has also made another appointment: Jon Ashenden, currently Sala’s regional general manager based at Sala Phuket Resort and Spa overseeing beach resorts in Phuket and Samui, has been promoted to vice president hotel operations based in Bangkok.
 
Jon began with Sala as general manager for Sala Phuket Resort and Spa and in 2012 was promoted to regional general manager in charge of all southern beach resorts.
