General Manager (Paris)
My client is a rapidly expanding European hotel concept with properties across Continental Europe, UK and Ireland. They offer an exciting, cool and funky niche accommodation and F&B product to a distinct target group. Excellent structures, superior product within the budget accommodation sector and highly desirable locations will see this group develop market share and brand presence across Europe. This is a great opportunity to join the senior management team and help shape the business over the course of their expansion.
Scheduled for opening in 2014 this Parisian property requires a steadfast, professional, people focussed Leader to take ownership of the pre opening construction/reconstruction project, team selection, business planning stages as well as stepping into the more traditional GM position from opening onwards.
Post opening, the role will be an exciting and challenging position as part of a group of international properties and driven by aggressive international growth. The Parisian property will be the flagship of the group showcasing an enviable art and music scene.
Essentially candidates will come from a strong hotel group structure holding a GM position for 2+ years or 4+ at a senior Assistant GM level. Candidates should have experience of hotel operations as well as sales and marketing, financial budgeting, and of essential importance is experience of working in the Parisian market. Candidates will ideally have experience of pre-opening/opening management, an innovative and creative approach, an interest in emerging art and music scenes and a desire to build their own profile as well as the property they will represent.
