D Varee Hotels and Resorts
President and Group CEO
With over 30 years of professional experience in hospitality and management in the Hotel sector, Mr. Kerk or as he prefers to be called informally as VK has worked his way up from humble and difficult beginning as a 16 year old school drop out before breaking into Senior Regional Management roles.
His journey took him through various hotel groups and his career has taken him to Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China. Now settled in Thailand where he co-founded D Varee Hotels & Resorts in 2013 with 2 properties and rising to 21 properties and projects within 5 years across 6 countries.
VK always believes that It is staying close to the people that matters and managing it effortlessly (the Guests, The Employees, The Stakeholder) that is essential to succeed. As he puts it, I see Solutions where others see Problems and Challenges!
