TIVANT, MONTENEGRO—Regent Hotels & Resorts named Michael Posch general manager of Regent Porto Montenegro, a luxury hotel scheduled to open in 2014.
A 21-year industry veteran Posch most recently served as GM at Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz.
Posch started as front office clerk, then moved onto the food and beverage department before transitioning to sales. As director of sales at Estrel Hotel Berlin, Posch was responsible for the sales of Germany’s largest hotel, with 1,125 rooms and more than 5,000 key accounts.
As executive assistant manager, and later general manager, Posch planned and oversaw the opening of Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatzz. He was involved in the pre-opening planning and the leading of hotel operations in F&B, front office, housekeeping and engineering. In addition, he was responsible for sales and strategic positioning of the hotel and its conference facilities, both domestically and internationally.
“We are excited about the imminent opening of Regent Porto Montenegro, our second hotel in Europe after Regent Berlin, and I am confident that Michael’s expertise in luxury hospitality and experience in current growth markets will be advantageous to the successful opening of this bespoke, luxury hotel on the Adriatic Sea,” stated Chairman Steven Pan.
