As General Manager of the 223-room hotel in the heart of Tanjong Pagar, Jacqueline will continue to develop and strengthen the hotel’s successful positioning in the Singapore luxury hospitality market. She aspires to place Sofitel Singapore City Centre in the international spotlight and empower her team members to achieve their full potential by grooming and motivating them towards operational excellence.
