About me

I could call myself the kind of things that my business cards say such as Guest Relations, Commercial, Concierge, Duty Manager, Operations Director,...
But when you get right down to it, I'm much more than that- I'm an entrepreneur, a social and a gadget geek, a friend, an optimist, a “helper”, a problem solver, a facilitator, a father, a student and a teacher.

I consider myself a resilient individual and what drives me is the passion on helping others.
And so I always do my best to accomplish the goals that I set and that are set for me.

In summary, and as I said before, you can call me a problem solver, a facilitator!

I'm right over at if you ever want to talk careers, exchange points of view or anything that you think I might add value.

Warm regards,
João Vilhena

    "A manager on duty (MOD) is intended primarily to ensure the guests and the employees of your hotel that responsible management is present and available in the hotel. When situations arise involving the service to or the comfort of our guests, management is not always available in all areas to assess the problem and find a solution. Therefore, it is vital that a responsible member of the management team be designated as the MOD in order to respond quickly to guest problems and needs, and also to coordinate the total operation of the property."
