Appointed Executive Chef
At Steigenberger Parkhotel in Dusseldorf, Germany
After 48 years of service, including 35 in the Steigenberger Group and 21 years at the Steigenberger Parkhotel on Königsallee in Düsseldorf, Michael Görres has taken his well-deserved retirement. He can now devote himself to the more relaxing aspects of life whilst looking back on an illustrious career that has contained such highlights as the achievement of a Michelin Star.
Mr. Görres' successor is Holger Jackisch, a true cosmopolitan. Born in Kevelaer in North Rhine-Westphalia and brought up in Bavaria, 49-year old Mr. Jackisch is a citizen of the world who has worked in kitchens in Bahrain, Cairo, Dubai, London, Berlin and Doha and was most recently Head Chef at the Kempinski Hotel in Moscow. He has been involved in successful hotel launches for Kempinski and Ritz Carlton as well as already being a familiar figure within the Steigenberger Group following a stint in Frankfurt.
