Shanghai, November, 2014

A distinguished hotelier, Mr. John O'Shea has more than 30 years experience in the hospitality industry, 18 of which were as a General Manager or Managing Director of high profile hotels in his native country Australia as well as Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and China. Throughout his career he has consistently shown strong leadership skills which have seen many of the hotels under his guidance win international and regional awards during his tenure.

Although he has been based in Shanghai since 2007 and worked as Managing Director of a leading five-star hotel in Pudong, The Langham, Xintiandi is his first appointment as a General Manager with the Langham Hospitality Group.

As the group's flagship hotel for China, The Langham, Xintiandi, which opened in late 2010, has already positioned itself as a market leader in Shanghai's luxury hotel market. In his new role, John will be responsible for overseeing the continued success of The Langham Xintiandi, a 357 room hotel with three restaurants and bars, 2,000 sqm of meeting space and Chuan Spa.

One of the highlight's of his career to date was receiving the Magnolia Silver Award in 2010 from the Shanghai Municipal People's Government in recognition for his outstanding contribution to the local community. The Magnolia Silver Award honours foreign citizens who live and work in Shanghai and have made significant contributions to the city's economic development, social progress and international relations and cooperation. The Award was set up by the Shanghai Municipal Government in 1989 and remains the highest recognition for foreign citizens living in Shanghai.
