In her new role, she will be overseeing the hotel’s room, meetings, and convention businesses.

She has more than 20 years of experience with Marriott International, having started her career with The Ritz-Carlton Millenia, Singapore. From there, Lee moved up the corporate ladder into senior positions in the catering, conference services and sales department.

Prior to joining The Westin Singapore, she was with The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai.

Next is Glen Cooper, who joins the team as executive chef. In his new role, he will lead a team of 40 and oversee the overall kitchen operations of the hotel’s F&B venues, as well as banquet operations.

Cooper brings with him more than 23 years of culinary experience, and is no stranger to Singapore’s dining scene, having sharpened his knives as executive sous chef for The Fullerton Hotel and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore from 2008 to 2010.

Before moving back to Singapore, he was the pre-opening executive chef for JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa. Cooper has also spent time alongside world-renowned chefs during his restaurant stints in cities including Christchurch, St Petersburg, and Bhutan.
