Horst Mayer New General Manager

January 15th, 2013

Change in management for both luxury hotels on Vienna's Ringstrasse: Since the end of 2012, Horst Mayer (46) has been the new General Manager of the two renowned Viennese luxury hotels Grand Hotel Wien and The Ring, Vienna's Casual Luxury Hotel. Mayer, who was born in Germany, has already had a stellar career in the luxury hotel sector. Among other positions, he was the director of the leading 5-star hotel Schlosshotel Kronberg, managing director of the 5-star Hessischer Hof in Frankfurt, and, most recently, director of the 5-star Maritim Hotel in Frankfurt.

"I'm really excited about working for these two legendary Viennese hotels with their outstanding staff teams," says General Manager Horst Mayer. "Our two hotels could hardly be more different: the famous Grand Hotel Wien with its great history and the trendy The Ring with its emphasis on the lifestyle segment. But at the same time, as a newcomer I see this wonderful city of Vienna as a place where rich tradition unites with a young, dynamic attitude to life to create a fascinating whole. And with our two hotels we can offer our guests the best aspects of both worlds."

After six highly successful years at the head of the two hotels, former manager Carl-Peter Echtermeijer left the hotels at the end of 2012 to take on a new career challenge.
