Welzel will lead the historic hotel and hands-on team in all aspects of hotel operations, from marketing and hotel administration to guest services and satisfaction.
“I had the honour and the pleasure to meet many partners, business owners and influential personalities from Como and its beautiful surroundings, when I visited in early February. My family and I are very excited to be soon part of this great society and call Como our Home for many years to come. I very much look forward to relocating to Como and to join the Hilton Lake Como, as I strive to continue this great journey together with the team,” commented Matthias Welzel.
