Appointed General Manager
At Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, Germany
There is to be a change at the helm of the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof. As of 1 February 2014, new Director Moritz Klein will assume overall responsibility for the First Class Hotel that has 261 rooms and 42 suites. With the appointment of 46-year old Moritz Klein, the Steigenberger Hotel Group is gaining a hotel manager with considerable international experience who has spent the vast part of the last 20 years abroad.
After completion of initial vocational education and training at the Kempinski Hotel Vierjahreszeiten in Munich, Moritz Klein began his career as Assistant Front Office Manager in the Hotel Baltschug Kempinski in Moscow. This was followed by stints in Vietnam (Furama Resort Danang) and Brunei (The Empire Hotel & Country Club), where he was employed as Executive Assistant Manager on both occasions. In 2004, he took up the position of Resident Manager at the Beach Rotana in Abu Dhabi, a post to which he subsequently returned as General Manager in 2008 following a year spent at the Amwaj Rotana Jumeirah Beach in Dubai. Moritz Klein was appointed Area Vice President of Rotana Hotels LLC in Abu Dhabi in 2011 and in 2013 went on to become General Manager and Area General Manager for Abu Dhabi at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara.
Moritz Klein takes over from Armin Schröcker. Born in Austria, Armin Schröcker managed the Frankfurter Hof, the traditional flagship establishment of the Steigenberger Hotel Group located in the city centre of Frankfurt, extremely effectively for a period of just under three years. In 2012, he exercised a lead management function in the extensive renovation and conversion works to which the rooms and suites owe their present design.
