Dear Sir, Madam,
I search for a position as an estate Manager.
I am a Swiss national, currently based out of Geneva and open to work offers worldwide. Available for an initial Skype conversation but can easily travel to mainland Europe (UK, France or Switzerland) to meet in person.
For well over two decades, I worked and travelled on several continents. I learned "hands-on" and gathered a wide array of experiences in all technical, hospitality, real estate and private services.
I managed large hospitality teams, worked with colleagues and communicated with clients, guests and principals from a broad variety of cultures, classes and origins.
I have worked with and trained a multitude of staff from regions as varied as Latin America, the Caribbean, the Far East, Europa and North Africa.
Thanks to these experiences I fit with ease in all environments, both socially and professionally. I innately know how to connect with staff, contractors, guests and principals alike no matter the situation.
I started in hospitality from a very early age and gathered a solid experience in F&B working in hotel, restaurants and cruise ship for over a decade.
Since the year 2000, I worked in real estate and private services, managing private estates for several years, in the south of France (for a North American principal) and in Morocco (for a Qatari principal) overlooking all household services as well as repairs, maintenance and renovation projects.
While self-employed in the south of France I supervised the rental management of multiple high-end properties with complete hospitality services.
More recently I supervised the completion of hidden defects and provided residential services for 90 new private residences of a 5 stars resort in Marrakesh, Morocco.
I helped with the set up of new properties, hired and trained domestic staff, inventoried the equipment, furniture, artwork and setting up a technical facility management program.
Some of my personal traits are discreet, optimist, organized, patient, relentless, reliable, resourceful, team-spirited.
Besides English, I fluently speak and write French and German plus fair conversational notions of Spanish and Italian. I am married, no dependents.
I look forward to hearing from you.
