Philippe Leboeuf, GM at Mandarin Oriental Paris
Named 2018 Independent Hotelier of the World
At HOTELS Magazine in Chicago - IL, USA
For Leboeuf, general manager of the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Paris as well as the brand's area vice president of operations, the point of emphasis also is family, having been heavily influenced by the strong direction and love of his mother.
So it is not surprising that Leboeuf makes a point to elevate women in the workplace. In his daily morning meeting, over half the leading staff members present are women. His personal assistant, Sophie Verneuil, mentions a quote often cited by Leboeuf: "Alone we go faster, together we go further."
