He was General Manager of The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong for five years before moving to the helm of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo.

Paul Jones has succeeded Anthony Costa as General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo. With more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Mr Jones embarked on his career with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group in 2005 as Hotel Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. In 2008, he was appointed General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Singapore before leaving to oversee the launch of Mandarin Oriental, Taipei in 2012 where he has positioned the hotel as one of most iconic luxury properties in the region.

Michael Ziemer moves from The Excelsior, Hong Kong to succeed Paul Jones as General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Taipei. With more than 30 years of hospitality experience, Mr Ziemer joined Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group in 2003 as Resident Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. He was appointed General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Munich in September 2004, returning to Asia in 2007 to oversee the rebranding of Mandarin Oriental, Macau to Grand Lapa, Macau. Michael transferred to The Excelsior, Hong Kong as General Manager in February 2010.
