Additional Information
I am a highly skilled and extremely experienced hospitality industry professional. My professional strengths were built and honed through my formal education and many years of experience in different positions related to the hospitality industry. Just to exemplify: More than 25 years ago, when I was studying Mechanical Engineering in my home country, I never realized that the attention to detail required for a great engineer would be one day, one of my greatest assets as a hospitality business professional. Today, I’m grateful for all the personal and professional traits and skills that I acquired and developed during my school and career years. During the last 25 years, for more or less 5-year periods, I was: • The General Manager/Co-Owner of Gazebo Café, a 120-seat restaurant in Palm Beach County, Florida, • One of the Head Waiters/ Assistant Manager of the same restaurant and a graduate student • An independent consultant for a Human Resources and Management Consulting company working for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line • An onboard employee for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line • The General Manager/ Co-Owner of a recruiting agency for Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Lines • An engineer All these years and job experiences helped me acquire and develop traits and skills such as: result oriented, entrepreneurial flair, attention to detail, self-motivated, self-disciplined, clear and effective communicator, able to multitask, team player, able to think outside the box, and highly flexible. At this time I am ready to embrace the next challenge and learning experience in my life and consequently, I am ready and willing to put my skills and experience to work in a new environment. I look forward to talk to you and I can assure you that I will use my skills, dedication, and hard work to meaningfully contribute to the future success of my future employer.
