Zannier Hotels has appointed Giulio D’Alberto to the role of general manager of Phum Baitang, its hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
D’Alberto joins the hotel at an exciting time as the property, which opened in late 2015.
With over 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, working for an impressive portfolio of hotels worldwide, he has gained a wealth of experience and developed extensive business acumen working across various departments including management, font office, reservations and sales.
Most recently, D’Alberto held the position of general manager at The Chedi Mumbai where he was responsible for leading all pre-opening activities; hiring, developing and training staff; implementing and monitoring departmental budgets and strategic market planning.
Other notable achievements here include overseeing the successful launch of a high-end Japanese restaurant managed by Hide & Yamamoto.
D’Alberto holds a diploma in hotel management from PSSAR Vespucci in Milan, in his native Italy, and a doctorate in economics, majoring in hotel management, from the University of Northwest in Brooklyn, New York.
He replaces Colin Bryant, who has left Phum Baitang for retirement after three successful years managing the hotel.
Commenting on D’Alberto’s appointment, Arnaud Zannier, founder of Zannier Hotels, said: “We are delighted to welcome Giulio to Zannier Hotels as general manager of Phum Baitang.
“His experience in general management, specifically in Asia, will make him a real asset to the team.
“We’re confident he is the right person to oversee the continued success of our unique and award-winning property in Cambodia.”
