A client focused and multilingual manager with 15 years of experience in the tourism and hospitality industry. Most recently I have been leading a team of 65 individuals in a demanding environment hosting diverse clientele, with a range of responsibilities including but not limited to: front office, property maintenance, guest relations, housekeeping, HR, financial management, business reporting and internal policy definition.
I conduct myself in an ethical and exemplary manner, thrive in high pressure situations and constantly seek new ways to drive sales. I gain satisfaction from achieving company and personal objectives alike, aiming to contribute positively to the business wherever possible. I pride myself on being dependable and accountable, going above and beyond to provide exceptional results to both my clients and superiors.
Hotels are complex and challenging - proactive service is imperative and possessing a strong sense of conscientiousness is required to guarantee an exquisite customer experience every time. As a hands-on manager, I´m not afraid to jump in and assist wherever needed – no job is too small. I enjoy all aspects of hotel management and actively seek solutions to any and every problem I encounter.
I am looking to develop and progress my career with an ambitious hotel that has a culture of performance accountability, recognition and is able to take full advantage of my competencies.
