Also, effective immediately, Liming Rao is named as Managing Director of Design. Rao brings over 15 years of hospitality design experience with a focus on luxury and boutique hotels and resorts such as Banyan Tree, Grand Hyatt and Jumeirah in China.

Rao began his career at the Taylor Hariri Pontarini Architects, a leading Canadian full-service architectural practice where he specialized in the architectural and interior design of residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. More recently, Rao joined CHG from Wing Tai Asia, a Singapore based international real-estate firm, where he oversaw the design and development of Wing Tai's trophy project, ultra luxury residential condominium, Le Nouvel Ardmore. Rao holds an MBA from the National University of Singapore and a BA from the University of Toronto.

CHG's Global Design Center will collaborate closely with CHG's exclusive hotel designer Jay Godfrey and other leading designers in the areas of restaurants, nightlife, and entertainment.
