BERLIN—Stefan Athmann has been appointed area general manager Europe for Regent Hotels & Resorts.
Athmann will continue to oversee the daily business at Regent Berlin and also will have responsibility for the strategic direction of the luxury hotel group as well as pipeline projects.
During his career, Athmann has held management positions at hotel groups such as InterContinental, Radisson and Kempinski. He gained his first experience at Regent Berlin in 2005 as director of sales and marketing before being appointed general manager at the Radisson SAS Hotel in Belfast, Ireland, where he stayed for two years.
Regent Hotels & Resorts, headquartered in Taiwan, is expanding with a current focus on Europe, according to the company. With the opening of the Regent Porto Montenegro last year, the group has implemented a new concept that will broaden its existing portfolio, building smaller hotels that offer a higher degree of privacy and a more intimate atmosphere.
