Hannah Edensor

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has brought Amy Bunting on board with the team.

Bunting will join the company as regional director of human resources for the Starwood Pacific region and director of human resources for Sheraton on the Park, effective immediately.

In the role, Bunting will be responsible for all aspects of human resource management at Sheraton on the Park and overseeing 18 operating hotels and six hotels under development in the Pacific Region.

She will be based at The Sheraton on the Park in Sydney and get involved in creating leadership strategies and direction, jumping into everything from hiring and training to employee relations.

Bunting is backed by over 15 years experience in the service delivery industry, and comes fresh off the back of a two year stint at the Westin Sydney, where she led the HR operations and was charged with implementing HR policies and procedures.

Prior to this, she spent four years at the Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney in various management roles.

“I am thrilled to be leading Starwood’s HR team across the Pacific region, particularly at such an exciting time of growth for Starwood,” Bunting said.

“This is an exciting next challenge for me and I look forward to the opportunity to shape a workforce that is integrated and focused on exceptional service delivery.”

Speaking on the fresh faced new team member, Starwood’s regional VP for the Pacific region Sean Hunt said Bunting’s wealth of knowledge and experience will be a great asset to the team during Starwood’s exciting expansion phase across the Pacific.

“Amy will be integral in ensuring we continue to hire the best talent and maintain Starwood’s position as a leader in the hospitality sector as we expand in both established and emerging markets,” he said.

Bunting succeeds Emma Jones who has transferred to Starwood’s South East Asia operations.
