From my first visit to Vietnam in 1992, I saw potential it had way before its current tourism boom. I started now-iconic Sailing Club Nha Trang in 1994, with a small bamboo structure. Sailing Club grew with Vietnam to what it is now. In 2001 I started Sailing Club Mui Ne. My track record serves to prove I don’t do things in half measures and when I decided to form Sailing Club Leisure group with Louis Walters, I knew the timing was right and that as a group we have a lot to offer potential partners and operators.
I have extensive experience in Vietnam overseeing the construction and management of restaurants, hotels and resorts. With over a decade of growth within the Vietnamese hospitality industry I have been part of the boom and seen the huge potential Asia has to offer. I have been instrumental in developing the concept and the final implementation of the Mia brand for the last 10 years.
