Raymond Manaois, Chief Technology and Systems Officer, joined HDG Hotels, LLC in May 2007. Raymond is mainly responsible for the company’s Information Technology needs. When not preoccupied with analyzing complex data and transforming them into useful information, Raymond spends most of his time developing strategies based on these analyses to drive organizational and operational changes that promote efficiency and growth to the organization. Raymond also helps in opening new or converting existing properties – from procuring materials and supplies, developing business and marketing plans, staff and admin training, and quality and standards compliance.
Prior to joining HDG Hotels, Raymond worked as an Instructor at the University of the Philippines, Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management and at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde where he handled courses in Hotel Information Technology, Cost Control and Analysis, and Rooms Division Management. Raymond attributes his extensive knowledge and skills in hospitality management from his first job at the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Hotel Manila where he worked as an Assistant IT Manager directly after college. Raymond also worked as an Assistant Controller onboard the cruise ship Norwegian Sun, part of the Norwegian Cruise Lines. Raymond holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration from the University of the Philippines.
