Park Hyatt Sydney, the luxury harbourside hotel, has welcomed Marc von Armin as their new General Manager, who will oversee operations at the award winning 155 room hotel. Mr von Arnim takes over from Andrew Mensforth, who is transferring to the Americas as Regional Vice-President, Operations – Latin America and the Caribbean.
Mr von Arnim is an Australian, whose career with Hyatt spans 22 years. He first joined Hyatt Regency Coolum in 1992 while earning a degree in Hotel Management. After graduating, he joined Grand Hyatt Melbourne as a Corporate Leadership Trainee and has held various positions at Hyatt Regency Perth, Park Hyatt Melbourne and Park Hyatt Sydney before being appointed General Manager of Hyatt Regency Auckland in 2008.
After his appointment as General Manager of Park Hyatt Goa, he became pre-opening General Manager of Park Hyatt Busan, where he oversaw the successful opening in February 2013. Under his leadership, Park Hyatt Busan is now established as the leading hotel in the city.
Mr von Arnim said “I’m very excited and honoured to be returning to Park Hyatt Sydney as General Manager. I look forward to working with a passionate team of associates and continuing to deliver exceptional and caring service to our guests. The hotel underwent a major renovation program and when reopened in February 2012, it quickly re-established itself as Sydney’s premier luxury hotel. I am very grateful and excited to be part of the Park Hyatt Sydney team and hope all visitors will appreciate our authentic hospitality, spectacular location and superb design.”
