Harbour Grand Kowloon is pleased to announce the appointment of Marc-Paul Pennaneach as Director of Food & Beverage.  With over 25 years of experience both in Hong Kong and overseas, Marc-Paul brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

His Career

From an early age the love and passion for food, which are the contributing factors for Marc-Paul’s success, could be found in abundance in the Pennaeach home where food and the partaking of it was a constant and passionate topic.

After relocating to Hong Kong as a family from France, Marc-Paul knew early on that he wanted to pursue a career surrounded by his two loves; food and wine.  Armed with his Higher Diploma in Institutional Management and Catering he stepped out and has never looked back.

Marc-Paul has been described as an individual of passion, innovation, open-mindedness and dynamism.  His love for food has taken him from Hong Kong to Macau to Sydney and back to Hong Kong.  Along the way he has developed a meticulous brand of management that, mixed with his diverse experience, makes him an asset to any establishment.

On the appointment of Marc-Paul Pennaneach, General Manager, Jonathan Wilson says, “We are thrilled to have someone of Marc-Paul’s experience and expertise join our team.  Hong Kong’s palate is continually changing and we are hoping to give them something to really talk about.”
