Appointed General Manager
At The Peninsula Paris, France
Governato began his career in the food and beverage industry, working in Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe for a 15-year period. Having worked in Hong Kong, London, Paris, Lisbon, Rome, Milan, the Maldives, Mauritius, and the Bahamas, he has a wealth of international experience with luxury institutions and brands.
Born and raised in Turin, Italy and fluent in English, Italian, French and German, Governato is particularly focused on guest experience, believing that "luxury service should happen without guests knowing where it comes from." After studying at the School of Hotel Management Torino (Italy), he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Technology, Hotel Administration and Management, and also holds a diploma in Hospitality Administration and Management from Cornell University's General Manager Programme.
