Since 1981, HOTELS has presented the "Hotelier of the World" award, considered
by industry insiders as the most coveted and prestigious honour in the global
hotel business. More than 60,000 readers in 150 countries vote for the annual
awards, and winners are chosen based on the following criteria: establishing
and maintaining the highest quality of service and operating standards;
demonstrating responsible and skillful management; volunteering to serve both
the industry at large and the communities in which they work; and supporting
educational endeavours.

"On behalf of our Peninsula family, we are proud of the prestigious honour
that Peter Borer has received from the readers of HOTELS, who are our
respected peers in the industry," said The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman
of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited. "For 32 years, Peter has forged
our strong brand profile and quality services that our staff and guests
experience today with the respect and core values that our company holds dear.
The Peninsula culture and unparalleled reputation for excellence are the
hallmarks of Peter's dedication and genuine love for the brand."

Throughout his 32-year career with The Peninsula Hotels, Peter Borer has been
instrumental in the vision and growth of the small luxury hotel company,
spearheading brand-defining moments including the tower expansion of the
flagship The Peninsula Hong Kong; the brand's first foray outside Asia with
the opening of The Peninsula Beverly Hills; and the concepts and designs of
new hotels including The Peninsula Tokyo, The Peninsula Shanghai and The
Peninsula Paris, set to open in 2014. He has been the visionary behind major
brand initiatives, including the iconic Peninsula Academy of cultural
programmes and the continued development of industry-leading guest room
technology, which can be seen in this year's completed US$58 million
renovation of the brand's Hong Kong flagship.

After acquiring extensive work experience in luxury hotels in Europe and the
United States, Peter Borer joined The Peninsula Hotels in 1981 as Food &
Beverage Manager at The Peninsula Manila, and after various tenures in Hong
Kong and Bangkok, went on to become Director of Sales and Marketing and then
Senior Vice President at the company's head office. He served for five years
as General Manager of The Peninsula Hong Kong and assumed wider responsibility
for the company's portfolio of Asian properties as Regional General Manager
and Group General Manager. In 2004, he was appointed Chief Operating Officer
of The Peninsula Hotels and Executive Director of The Hongkong and Shanghai
Hotels, Limited.
