Swiss-Belhotel International has announced the appointment of Alban Dutemple as the General Manager of Swiss-Belhotel Seef Bahrain.

We are very grateful to Herve for his contribution and hard work and wish him the very best for the future.”

 

 

Upon joining Swiss-Belhotel Seef Bahrain, Alban said, “I feel very excited and motivated, and look forward to working closely with the team to build on the exceptional success of Swiss-Belhotel Seef Bahrain. We all know continued investment in tourism infrastructure is transforming Bahrain’s tourism sector. It is wonderful to be in the Kingdom at this exciting time. I love the spirit and culture of Bahrain and look forward to discovering more about the local customs and traditions.”

 

 

A French national, Alban entered the hospitality industry as Chef de Partie at a Michelin star restaurant in France in 1978 and rose quickly in his career. He moved to Mexico in 1993 joining the Hotel Nikko in Mexico City as Executive Chef. In 1997, Alban took up the role of the Executive Chef at the Sheraton Maria Isabel in Mexico City.
