My plan is to ensure that we achieve our goals for the Centre and to gain more internationally recognised awards.” said Mark.
Wan Azranizal joins from Sime Darby Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur, where he held the position as banquet operation and catering sales manager, which played a huge role in the operations. Wan brings over 20 years of hospitality experience to BCCK. “I would especially like to focus on operations and building a good relationship with all our guests.” Wan added.
BCCK at the same time welcomes Chef Eric Lim as the new Sous Chef for The Raintree Restaurant. Chef Eric has over 10 years of culinary experience and formerly worked as Executive Chef for the Serapi Group of Companies. Throughout his career, Chef Eric has expanded his expertise in authentic Japanese cuisine and Japanese Wagyu beef in Singapore.
“My next target for The Raintree Restaurant is, that it will not only serve Western food but we will bring out multi-racial food such as Asian, a twist from Japanese cuisine and probably middle Eastern. And not to forget our local Sarawak ingredients such as Lada Sarawak, Terung Asam, Cangkuk Manis, etc to incorporate into modern cuisine” said Chef Eric.
“We are very honoured to welcome each one of them to our team at BCCK. BCCK always emphasizes operations and food to provide the best experience for our guests. We believe that their experience and expertise will bring BCCK to greater heights!” added Eric Van Piggelen, CEO of BCCK.
BCCK is a unique Convention Centre, the only of its size and kind not only in Kuching but in Sarawak. The Centre’s location is also exceptional in itself, growing alongside Sarawak’s position as a captivating culture, adventure and nature destination on the exotic island of Borneo. As the largest convention centre in Sarawak, BCCK has created a reputation for serving high quality fare for high volumes of guests within the centre and through offsite catering, as well as providing fine dining options within The Raintree Restaurant.
