Eu­gene Oelofse (ZA)

Hail­ing from South Africa, Eu­gene started work­ing in the ad­ver­tis­ing world and dealt mostly with clients in the hos­pi­tal­ity and de­vel­op­ment sec­tors, which led to a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion to­wards hos­pi­tal­ity eight years ago.

He’s now the Na­tional Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Di­rec­tor for Hil­ton in Malaysia and is ex­cited to pi­lot a new con­sol­i­dated mar­ket­ing ap­proach, par­tic­u­larly for Hil­ton’s din­ing op­tions.

Though Eu­gene has been here for just four months, he thinks that Malaysia is one of the most liv­able places that he’s ever stayed in – high praise from a glo­be­trot­ter.

When he’s tak­ing a break, Eu­gene likes to paint and also em­braces an ac­tive life­style with cy­cling, triathlons and al­most any­thing out­doorsy. He’s also tak­ing full ad­van­tage of the di­verse travel op­tions just an hour or two away!
