Skills & Education

Difficult task to explore our own skills with absolute candor....

It is impossible to separate my personal believes – my behavior – from the values and principles that I implement, protect and enhance in my working environment.

 

It is my pledge as a Leader, to apply all my technical abilities to obtain the best possible results in Financial, Quality, Service and Product – regardless of what executive position I have.

 

My demeanor is always based in Truth and mutual Respect to ALL persons I deal with - colleagues, guest, suppliers, authorities and to my employer!

"If it's not Right, don't do it;

If it's not True, don't say it.

Simple!"

EDUCATION

My former training in Architecture and Visual Arts has been a tremendous help for my Hospitality Career. Particularly, during my pre-opening jobs and consulting services advicing owners and architects to design hospitality facilities with a clear understanding of the mechanics during the operation - when Quality of Design and Equipment shows.....

For instance, easy access to every corner of the building - either for cleaning or maintenance - could be a real challenge if the Design was not realistic ...
