Eike Clausen, hotel manager of the Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea since March 2018, has now been promoted to the role of general manager at the leading luxury hotel.
“With his international experience, expertise and in-depth knowledge of Kempinski, we are confident that Eike will continue to lead Kempinski Hotel Aqaba towards more success and great achievements,” said Henk Meyknecht, chief operating officer of Kempinski Hotels Middle East and Africa. “Eike joined the hotel mid-2017 as executive assistant manager and successfully managed to keep the leading position of the hotel both financially and quality-wise, consequently receiving a well-deserved promotion to hotel manager in March 2018. Since then, he has further proved himself as a strong and committed hotelier.”
Clausen started his Kempinski journey in 2007, as sales management trainee at Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, and steadily progressed his career in the sales and marketing department. In 2013, he moved to China, where he was appointed director of sales at Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Centre, before switching to operations as front office manager at Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai. Later, in November 2015, he was appointed director of rooms at Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch Frankfurt, Germany.
“I am very proud to become the general manager of Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea, where I look forward to continuing to position our hotel as the leading luxury resort in Aqaba. Kempinski plays an important role in promoting Jordan as a unique tourist destination in the Middle East and I am really delighted to be able to work and live in this beautiful country,” said Clausen. - TradeArabia News Service
