Fuzhou, 18 April 2024Kempinski Hotel Fuzhou welcomes newly appointed Western Executive Chef Michael Wang.

Originally from Beijing, Michael brings a wealth of international experience to his new role. His culinary journey began with a formative two-year internship at the Vocational School in Villingen, Germany. Upon his return to China after graduation, Michael kick-started his professional career at the Kerry Centre Hotel Beijing. Over the past two decades, he has honed his craft at prestigious international hotels across Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao and Shanghai. Michael’s diverse background also includes serving as Ambassador Chef at the Uruguayan Embassy in China and co-owning a restaurant. Joining Kempinski Hotel Fuzhou is Michael’s second professional chapter in Fuzhou, having been drawn back by the dynamic culinary scene and his fond memories of the city. His extensive experience has equipped him with a remarkable ability to adapt quickly to new environments and stay ahead in the competitive food and beverage industry.
