Hans Jenni to Step Down as President of General Hotels Management

USA, Coral Gables, Florida. May 06, 2020

Seasoned hotelier Hans Jenni, President of General Hotels Management (GHM) has announced his retirement from the company he founded and built together with hotel legend and Amanresorts creator, Adrian Zecha.
Since it was founded in 1992, GHM under Jenni's leadership conceived and operated some of the world's most stylish and individualistic hotels and resorts in the most exotic locations - always with a strong focus on contemporary Asian style coupled with the finest service standards.

The unique "a style to remember" that GHM grew famous for was forged by Jenni and Zecha together with some of the world's most groundbreaking architects and designers, including Kerry Hill, Jean-Michel Gathy, Ed Tuttle, Reda Amalou and Jaya Ibrahim. GHM and Amanresorts grew alongside each other as sister companies, sharing a similar ethos and style, and together set new benchmarks and standards for the hospitality industry.

GHM's properties over the years included The Datai, Langkwai, The Legian Bali, The Setai, Miami, The Lalu Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan, The Nam Hai in Vietnam, Al Bait in Sharjah and The Chedi brand which blossomed to multiple locations including Phuket, Bali, Chiang Mai, Muscat, Milan and Bandung, and more recently Andermatt in Jenni's native Switzerland.

"It's been an exciting and rewarding journey, and I have loved every minute of it. I had the pleasure to create and operate some of the finest properties in the world and work with some of the very best architects, designers, and hoteliers of our time," said Jenni. "I very much hope that GHM will continue to be remembered as one of the most innovative and influential hotel groups."

Jenni will continue to be based in Asia and plans to divide his time between Singapore and Manila.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
