“I am passionate about people and delivering experiences, whether it be for special occasions, for leisure or making a business stay a little smoother,” says Cornelia Koebele. “Yes, design and facilities matter, but it’s the people in a hotel and the experience that guests have that make the difference, that’s why I love working in an operating hotel, and will continue to make the day-to-day experience an impressive one in my new role at Kulm Hotel St. Moritz and Grand Hotel Kronenhof.”
