Recognised as the pioneer of sustainable high-end tourism, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas further enhances their commitment to the environment with the appointment of Amber Marie Beard as Vice President Sustainability.
During almost a decade of professional passion and experience in sustainability, Amber has had a fascinating career in locales around the world, which began in Boston USA, where she delivered enriched levels of environmental and social returns for Lend Lease, one of the world’s largest property developers.
Relocating to Hong Kong, Amber joined China Resources, which is one of China’s largest government owned organizations, working on the city’s first existing building sustainable redevelopment project that was targeting LEED Gold certification. A move to Singapore saw her as Head of Sustainability with Sustainability Ltd, an investment finance-company managing niche real estate opportunities in China, Japan and Australia, where she focussed on delivering heightened levels of sustainability while delivering attractive financial returns.
In preparation for her professional career, Amber graduated with high honours, dean’s high honours and summa cum laude with a degree in architecture from the University of Wisconsin in the USA.

Announcing Amber’s appointment, Bernhard Bohnenberger, President of Six Senses said, “In this new position at Six Senses, sustainability will take on an even greater strategic role within the organization as it is elevated to the level of the executive committee. With Pegasus Capital Partners, who acquired the company in 2012 and has over $2.2 billion in sustainably focused assets under management, Six Senses recognized the importance of prioritizing sustainability by inviting Amber to this position, illustrating once again that environmental preservation and cultural conservation can be achieved without compromise to the award winning experiences for which the company is renowned”.
