Major International Accolade for Key Team Member of Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai

 

Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai is delighted to announce that Auric Li has been named Owner’s Representative of the Year at the Hotelier Awards ceremony on October 30th in Shanghai. Organised by Rivera Events, this is the major benchmarking celebration of the year for hotels throughout China, Macau, Hong Kong.

Auric’s hospitality career started in Shenzhen in the early 1990s when the SEZ was only beginning to develop. He spent a decade learning every facet of front-of-house management from Front Desk Manager to Front Office Manager before he joined OCT’s International Hotel Management Company where he was involved in pre-opening and overall operation of a number of different hotels.

His background of successful operations experience made Auric a natural choice as the Owners’ Representative when he joined Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai in 2013. He was closely involved in every phase of the renovation of the original Nanhai Hotel as a separate wing of Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai. Opened in July 2017, this lifestyle-focused 218-room facility includes a large health club and kid’s club.

In addition to a degree in English, Auric earned a Hotel & Tourism Management master’s degree at Hong Kong’s Polytechnic University. Among diverse honours, Auric was appointed a judge of star hotel properties in Guangdong Province.

Auric has played a major role in the numerous awards garnered by the Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai. His wide-ranging hotel management experience shows in his full support for every aspect of the hotel including Human Resources, Business Development, Engineering and Security, as well as Finance. Thanks to his professional management and coordination, Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai has achieved remarkable results in every field from operational performance to brand awareness and reputation.

Auric has fully supported Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai in its quest for outstanding results. Some notable areas that benefited from his input include drafting the detailed KPI evaluation index for the hotel as the guide for year-end staff bonuses.

The Hotel Leadership index rose from 79% to 87% in 2017. The Hotel Balance Score Card exceeded expectations for the 3rd consecutive year, and won many Hilton Awards during 2017.

“I am honoured to receive this award for which I feel the owning company and the Hilton Management Team should take credit,” said Auric with typical modesty.

“Auric truly deserves this award. I am delighted that his hard work and talent have been recognized in this way,” said the hotel’s general manager John Burger. “Auric is a prime example of how a good owners’ representative adds value to the partnership. He is professional, supportive and a major asset to our team. He has been a big part of our success and I look forward to many more years of fruitful co-operation with him and our owning company.”

Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai hotel General Manager named Outstanding Area General Manager

Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai hotel General Manager named Outstanding Area General Manager 2017-18.

Twofold award for John Burger

John Burger, Shenzhen Area General Manager and General Manager of Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai, has been honored as “Outstanding Area General Manager 2017 & 2018 (Asia Pacific).”

This was one of a number of awards acknowledging great leadership and outstanding commercial results achieved during the past year, announced at the recent Hilton APAC & Commercial Conference held in Singapore recently.

A veteran of four decades of experience in leading international hotels, John’s current responsibilities cover nine Shenzhen hotels.

In 2012, he was appointed General Manager of Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai China, which he opened in 2013. He also successfully oversaw transformation of the adjacent former Nanhai Hotel into a unique boutique resort, opened in 2017.

John’s award was twofold: for outstanding commercial results that have established the company as a local market leader. And also for his substantial contribution to the development of talent for the Women in Leadership Programme, dedicated to developing female leaders to enrich the diversity of the company’s management team.

The figures speak for themselves – a 110% market share; and an impressive rise in total hotel revenue – 2016 versus 2017 23%; and 2017 vs 2018 year to date, 45%.

Leading the Women in Leadership program proved to be “exciting, educational and thought-provoking,” John says. ”It was exciting to work closely with female leaders and watch them progressing to the next stage. During this processes, I was able to learn more about them. It was a steep learning curve as I started to appreciate the special challenges faced by a female leader whereas a male counterpart would never face such issues. This encouraged me to reflect on my personal life and think about how I balance my work and life. I thought about how my wife and I reacted to each promotion. So it was a process of witnessing other peoples’ growth and helping my own growth at the same time.”

“It was an honor to have the opportunity to present John with this coveted award for Area General Manager Asia Pacific. John has guided his area to superior performance and represents the very best of Hilton Hospitality.” said David Kelly, SVP Operations GCM,

Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai and Ming Fai Group partner with Soap Cycling to run another soap recycling activity in Shenzhen

On 20th Sep, the soap recycling activity organized by Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai, involves more than 30 volunteers from local community, hotel team members and local media.  65 kilos soap was recycled in 2 hours which will be enough for 1 year usage by 130 children from the unprivileged area. These soaps will be delivered to different poverty areas in China to improve the sanitation and hygiene.

Every year, millions of children worldwide do not make it to their 5th birthday because of preventable diseases such as diarrheal and pneumonia. In Mainland China, it is estimated that hundreds of children die every day from diseases such as pneumonia and diarrheal. Although China has progressed rapidly in the past few decades, much work remains to be done to ensure every child has a chance at a healthy and happy future.

To keep the environment sustainable and fully utilize the used soap in hotel guest rooms, Guangdong Area hotels organized SOAP activity to help underprivileged regions to improve the sanitation and hygiene standard. As part of the activities in Global Week of Service, Shenzhen Area has participating SOAP recycling since 2016. Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai will continue SOAP Cycling activity in a quarterly basis to involve more Shenzhen local community into this program.

We are reminded of the great challenges faced in China, and in underprivileged communities around the world, to keep children healthy through proper hygiene. This initiative not only provides a direct way to improve hygiene and health for many people living in our local community, it also encourages awareness and education about the importance of hand washing as an effective means of preventing diseases.

We believe that through partnerships like this, we can achieve significant social impact. We thank both companies for getting involved, and invite others to join us in the future.
