It is exciting to see our leadership team grow and evolve with the well-deserved appointments of Priya, Soo Jeong and Simon to their new positions. Each of their roles is critical to the strategic expansion of the group, and I am entirely confident in their abilities to lead their teams to great success as we continue to affirm Rosewood as a leader in the luxury lifestyle space.
