Kerzner International has appointed Philippe Zuber as president and chief operating officer for One&Only Resorts.
In this role, Zuber will lead the strategic development of the One&Only brand, including continued operational success of all existing One&Only resorts.
The appointment is strategically important as the company continues further enhancements across existing resorts in the collection and also moves forward with expansion plans for One&Only worldwide.
One&Only has also been focusing on continued innovation throughout the One&Only portfolio, with both One&Only Palmilla and One&Only Ocean Club recently introducing new features and experiences for guests after major renovations.
Zuber will continue this focus on the guest experience across the collection, with continued innovation and further development and growth of the One&Only team.
“I am thrilled to have Philippe join One&Only Resorts at this exciting time of growth for the company,” commented Alan Leibman, chief executive, Kerzner International.
“He is a strong leader who constantly innovates and has an incredible focus on developing talent to drive amazing guest experiences.
“I look forward to working with Philippe as we continue to enhance our resorts and build the brand worldwide, continuing to set a new level of expectation in the ultra-luxury sector.”
Zuber joins One&Only with over 20 years in the hospitality segment, having held both operational and corporate senior leadership positions.
Most recently, he was with Emaar Hospitality where, in his capacity of chief operating officer, he successfully oversaw the operations and development of existing and future projects for the group.
