General Manager I Multiunit Manager


A seasoned international hotelier with a career best to describe as “dishwasher to General Manager “. I had the opportunity to work with and learn from the best in the industry guided by some incredible mentors and brands like InterContinental and Orient Express throughout.

In the past 7 years I have been assigned to open and manage some of the best hotels and assets under world class brands like IHG. The Alpensia Resort in South Korea a 1.4 billion USD project purpose build to accommodate the winter Olympics 2018 and voted Forbes top 4 most luxury ski accommodation in Asia. The project included two 18 hole golf courses, extensive retail and recreation facilities, apartments, villas and time share units, waterpark, conference center and offered extensive 4 seasons sport facilities.

I just recently opened the Harbourview Hotel Macau a 180 million USD themed Casino hotel and winner of the 2015 MECC Award “Euroexcellence in Luxury” part of a billion dollar refurbishment of the Fisherman’s Wharf, a Macau “Landmark” with extensive recreational, meeting and casino facilities.

I learned to deal with design and engineering issues and managed to reduce expenses for operators and owners alike. I am well experienced in drafting and managing million dollar FF&E inventories and in writing “rock solid” profit generating pre-opening and post-opening business plans which converts into a positive GOP/EBITA within 1 to 6 month of opening.
