Appointed Executive Assistant Manager (EAM)
At The Nam Hai in Hoi An, Vietnam
The Nam Hai has appointed a new executive assistant manager, hiring Florian Leven to fill the vacancy left by Walter Hess, who moves to Bali to become the first general manager of the soon-to-open Chedi Club Jimbaran Bali, another GHM-managed property.
Leven’s post at The Nam Hai comes after a six-year stint in Hawaii, where he served in a variety of roles at Mauni Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows and then at The Kahala Hotel & Resort, most recently as director of front office.
Leven’s hospitality career dates to 1998, when the German broke into the industry as an apprentice for two and a half years at the Elysee Hotel in Hamburg.
He went on to work for the Zurich Marriott Hotel and Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in Switzerland before earning his Masters in Hospitality & Tourism from Johnson & Wales University in the U.S. Leven also holds a certificate in Hotel Revenue Management from Cornell University.
