New GM for the Ultima Gstaad

Fri, 28. Jun. 2019

After Byron Baciocchi and Max-Hervé George founded the Ultima Collection, they went on to successfully open a series of high-class luxury hotels in Gstaad, Crans-Montana, Megève, Geneva and Courchevel.

In 2018, the group employed nearly 150 staff across its various establishments. With additional hotels set to open by the end of 2020, the workforce will double to over 300 employees.

The Ultima Gstaad has a new General Manager with over ten years of professional experience working for the Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotel chain. Appointing Simon Le Cossec should help to anchor the Ultima Gstaad firmly in the top hotels sector.

When it comes to developing the group’s businessstrategy, the thorough and rigorous approach of Laure Rüegger will be indispensable. She will take over the management of Ultima Collection. During her career in the hotel industry, Laure Rüegger has established a track record of managing hotels of the highest calibre, particularly in London and France.

The managerial unit responsible for corporate development has over ten departments. These coordinate jobs and areas within Ultima, including operational matters, business strategy, finance and environmental protection, among others.
