Jung takes up leadership role with Ritz-Carlton, South Beach

Luxury Miami Beach hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, has announced the appointment of Dennis Jung to the position of hotel manager. 

With more than 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, the seasoned international hotelier will lead and oversee the operation of the 375 room hotel in Miami Beach, FL. 

The oceanfront restored 1953 Art Moderne building, in the famed Art Deco district, is located at the epicentre of South Beach.

Jung’s tenure in the luxury hotel industry has led him to exotic locations around the globe, working in six cities, across three different continents.

He began his hospitality career as a night auditor at a 285 room hotel in Frankfurt, Germany. 


After ten years and eight employment positions in the Rooms Division – holding executive positions in Munich, Switzerland, Shanghai, and Beijing – Jung decided to join The Ritz-Carlton family in 2010.

Most recently Jung held the position of hotel manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow. 

In Moscow, Jung began as the executive assistant rooms manager, and would eventually expand his role to director of hotel operations followed by hotel manager.

Jung earned a degree in International Hospitality from Hotelfachschule Heidelberg in Germany and also studied at Cornell University.
