InterContinental Seoul COEX appointed longtime hotelier Kim Yeon-sun as its first female general manager.
The 52-year-old Kim also became the first female board member of Parnas Corp., which operates Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas and InterContinental Seoul COEX and Nine Tree Hotel Myeong-dong, the hotel said Wednesday.
The veteran hotelier started her career at the front desk of Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas in 1988 and worked her way up to guest relations manager in 1994, first female front office manager in 2004 at InterContinental Seoul COEX, and then front office team leader from 2010-2011 at Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas.
She most recently served as head of the training team of the two hotels, a position she took in 2012.
