Kurt Vieren

Hotel Manager
Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel

Kurt Vieren has been at the helm of the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel as its Hotel Manager since August 2011.

Hailing from Roeselare, Belgium, Kurt’s career with Starwood Hotels & Resorts began in 2000 when he was hired as the Front Office Manager at Le Meridien Grand Hotel Nuernberg in Germany. Since then, he has not looked back and instead worked hard to grow his career throughout Europe and South East Asia.

In 2008, he was transferred to The Palace San Francisco, A Luxury Collection Hotel as its Hotel Manager. During his tenure at The Palace San Francisco, Kurt was committed to enhancing the hotel’s status as a modern luxury hotel in San Francisco that will increase rooms and food and beverage profitability through redesigning and realigning the overall hotel and restaurant concept. While he was there, he also took on the role as a brand trainer and brand champion for the Luxury Collection standards. Under his determined guidance, there was a significant improvement in their Guest Service Index year over year which was from 8.25 to 8.45.

After 3 years in this iconic hotel, Kurt’s love for Asia proved much too strong to resist and hence, brought him back to this part of the globe, at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel. Armed with more than 15 years of work experience in the hospitality industry, Kurt is very excited to put all that knowledge into use here. He looks forward to spearheading this classy hotel to greater heights whilst learning more about Malaysia’s traditions and its colourful heritage. In his spare time, Kurt unwinds by listening to music and travelling.
