German-born Tim Weiland moved from the Aman Le Mélézin Hotel in Courchevel, France, to Gstaad on 1 November 2018. He’s taken over from Eric Favre, who left the establishment at the end of the 2018 summer season.
Tim Weiland’s career as a general manager has taken him to various hotels within the Aman Group over the past decade. Although born in Germany, he grew up in South Africa, Haiti and Kenya and has a bachelor’s degree from the École hôtelière in Lausanne. When asked about taking up his new post in Gstaad, he said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of taking The Alpina Gstaad forwards and working with the staff team.”
In a comment, Nachson Mimran, President of the Board of Directors for Grand Hotel Alpina AG, said: “Tim Weiland is just the right person to share our vision of sustainable luxury and has much to contribute through his international experience in the luxury hotel industry. He has an extensive knowledge of the needs of our international guests and will be able to recognise and fulfil these.”
