USA, Atlanta, Georgia. October 21, 2020

Valor Hospitality Partners, an award-winning hospitality management company, has named Clarence Tan as the principal and corporate advisor of Valor Asia, the organization's Singapore and Thailand-based division.

Tan joins Valor Hospitality with over 25 years of experience in hotel management, global leadership and senior management. In his new role, Tan will leverage his hospitality management experience, as well as his market knowledge, to support the growth of Valor's Asian and Australasian portfolios.

"We believe the opportunities for franchising in Asia are now more critical than ever, as owners and investors realize the importance of having a highly-experienced operator to run their hotel, both to take-on the operational challenges and to protect their investment," says Euan McGlashan, Valor's global co-founder and CEO. "Our team is committed to growing our portfolio across the continent, providing market leading returns to investors and demonstrating the benefits of working with Valor. We are thrilled to have Clarence lead our team in Asia as Valor continues to expand its footprint, and reach in the region."

Previously, Tan served as managing director of Southeast Asia and Korea for Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), building their portfolio of hotels with great success in the market.

"Due to his impressive pedigree and track record, Clarence is a highly-respected leader in the hospitality industry," says McGlashan, "It's evident his relationships with owners, investors and clients are borne from his incredible personality, and aligns him closely with Valor Hospitality's corporate culture."

"I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to contribute to the industry that I love," says Tan. "Like my industry peers, I am confident our industry will come out of this pandemic stronger than ever. The Valor business model will allow more intimate owner connections, resulting in aligned outcomes and performance. I am grateful to Euan and his partners for welcoming me on board at this critical time for our industry."

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
