Henry “Hanky” Lee, III is the man behind the success of The Henry Hotel brand, a pioneering boutique hotel chain in the Philippines with multi-awarded properties in Manila and Cebu. Competing against established hospitality giants, he has brought his properties to occupy two slots in TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Hotels in the Philippines in a short span of time.
Hanky graduated B.S. Management Engineering from the Ateneo de Manila University and took the CSS Program under Harvard University.
Before venturing in the hotel business, he started as a multiple franchisor of Chowking from 1994 to 2003. In 2001, he co-founded The Yellow Cab Food Corp. and was co-owner until 2011. Yellow Cab is a quick casual pizza chain all over the Philippines with presence in Malaysia, Qatar and the US.
His vision is to put up 8 more like no other properties under The Henry Hotel brand by 2020. Next stop, Asia.
