JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa – the flagship property of Marriott’s International luxury brand – has announced the appointment of new General Manager, Markos E Tzamalis.

Joining the company after four years at the helm of the Sheraton Rhodes Resort, where he was credited with increasing RevPar Index and Guest Index, Mr Tzamalis brings a wealth of hospitality experience accumulated across the globe.

With a diploma from Les Roches Hotel Management School in Bluche, Switzerland, and a General Manager’s qualification from Cornell University under his belt, he launched his career as bar and restaurant manager at Manila’s Hard Rock Café in 1995.

Since then, his work has been highlighted by managerial roles at the Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki City Resort, the Sani Asterias Suites boutique in Halkidiki, and he re-opened the Vedema, a Luxury Collection Resort, Santorini in 2008. He also undertook a year as Director of Operations Mediterranean & Africa (2013-2014) at Grace Hotels.

Mr Tzamalis’s new role will see him taking overall charge of the resort’s myriad facilities, including the GOCO Spa Venice – the city’s largest spa complex – the Michelin-starred Dopolavoro restaurant and Sapori Cooking Academy, as well as both the main hotel and its arm of luxuriously exclusive JW Retreats.
