Appointed General Manager
At Mӧvenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives in Noon Atoll
A German national, Michael has more than 35 years' experience in the hospitality industry, many of which have been spent in the Asia Pacific region. He also has qualifications from Cornell University and Dale Carnegie Hong Kong, and he has worked for some of the industry's most famous brands over the course of almost four decades in the hospitality industry. Most recently he was GM of the Sunrise Nha Trang Beach Hotel & Spa, a luxury sea-facing property in Vietnam.
Mövenpick has deep roots in the food and beverage industry, and this heritage aligns perfectly with Michael's own passion for the culinary arts. Having started his career as a chef in Germany, he became a Food & Beverage specialist at several hotels. Subsequent roles included Director of Event Management, Hotel Operations Manager and Director of Operations, reporting directly to General Managers and owners. This gave Michael a comprehensive view of hotel operations prior to becoming a General Manager in 2010. Since this time he has successfully managed properties in the Maldives, the Philippines and Vietnam.
