Swire Hotels has announced a trio of promotions in its senior management team across The House Collective and East brands.
First up is Giovanni Beretta, who will be relocating with his family to Hong Kong as the new group director of operations. In his new role, Beretta will oversee all of the brand’s hotels and restaurants in Hong Kong, mainland China and Miami.
With over 25 years of hospitality experience, Beretta first joined the brand as the general manager of East Miami and vice president of Swire Hotels in the US in 2015.
Meanwhile, rising to the position of general manager, Kristina Snaith-Lense will oversee all aspects of The Upper House and Pacific Place Apartments.
Snaith-Lense has worked with the brand for nearly 10 years, starting her career with the company as the assistant director of guest experience at The Upper House in 2012. In 2017, she spearheaded the pre-opening operations of The Middle House in Shanghai as the hotel manager, before returning to Hong Kong in 2019 to take on the role of hotel manager at The Upper House.
Last but not least, Olivier Dumonceaux will step into his new role as general manager at The Opposite House.
Starting his hospitality journey in Lyon, France, Dumonceaux has worked across nine countries. Following the success of The Opposite House’s renovation, where he has been the hotel manager since 2018, Dumonceaux was promoted to become the property’s general manager earlier this year.
He joined the Swire Hotels team in 2014 as the director of R&B at The Temple House, and was then promoted to executive assistant manager after working to secure the success of the property’s opening.
