Appointed General Manager
At The Chedi Muscat, Oman
GHM has installed Markus Iseli as general manager of the acclaimed Chedi Muscat on the Gulf of Oman. Iseli most recently managed the pre-opening and soft-opening of the Palazzo Parigi, a Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) member in Milan, Italy.
The Muscat posting marks the Swiss native's third stint in the Middle East. He was hotel manager of the Four Seasons in Istanbul from 2000 to 2004, and general manager of the Four Seasons in Damascus from 2004 to 2008.
Earlier in his career, he’d worked in the United Arab Emirates and for InterContinental in Turkey. He spent four years in the Sudan at the Hilton, and two more at safari lodges in Kenya.
Iseli replaces York Brandes, who is moving to Singapore to take on a senior management position with GHM in the second half of the year.
