Yvette Jong, Founder & Managing Director
Yvette was born in New York and graduated from the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.

In response, she founded Craft House in 2011 to offer clients a vertically integrated solution - one where Yvette combines the global expertise from trusted consultants and partners to build holistic strategies to meet client goals. Each unique combination of talent works closely with clients to develop strategies that drive business goals in a thoughtful and integrated approach. Her personal experience includes operations in internationally branded hotels and boutique properties and private member’s clubs. Yvette was also a Senior Consultant with Horwath HTL in Hong Kong where she consulted on more than 45 hospitality projects across Asia.
