In recent years I have been involved in short term project management in Africa & Caribbean as an independent contractor (HIM4Hotels). I have the ability to adjust to new cultures and environments (able to communicate in 5 languages) within a short period of time.
I am experienced interim Hotelier in working in both Business & Resorts Hotels, either chain affiliated (Le Meridien, Kempinski and Valk Hotels) or privately owned (Lagos Continental Hotel, Hotel Rwanda and Hotel 2 février). My previous employers and clients will testify that I am a seasoned but foremost a pro-active Hotelier with a strong operational (project) background in hardship locations. I am specialized in (pre) opening, restructuring & repositioning of Hotels & Restaurants.
Loyalty, honesty and strong commitment are just a few of my strengths. I have a good sense of humor. I am bottom line focused and revenue driven, creative, hands on with strong managerial skills in Finance, Sales & Marketing, Human Resources with a passion for F&B.
