With 28 years of experience in operational strategy and sales and marketing management in the luxury hotel sector in France and internationally, Jean-Marie Le Gall will take over the general management of Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris on September 1st, 2021.
Following his studies as a graduate of the Sorbonne, this hotel enthusiast began his career working in the commercial services of large hotel groups such as Starwood Méridien, Hilton, Accor, Concorde, and Intercontinental. Eighteen years of experience as a sales manager fostered Jean-Marie Le Gall’s managerial skills and knowledge of the sector.
In 2010, the Royal Monceau in Paris trusted him for the post of sales and marketing director. In 2012, it was the Plaza Athénée’s turn to welcome him to the same role.
In 2014, Jean-Marie Le Gall was offered the position of operations manager at the luxurious Majestic Hotel in Barcelona. Four years later, still in the same city, he took over the general management of the Palace Hotel (formerly Ritz). These two experiences in the Catalan capital prepared him for the new challenges that will come as General Manager of Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris.
“Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s is an iconic Parisian establishment with a cultural significance that resonates in France as well as internationally. It’s important to me to be a part of the property’s exceptional story at this unprecedented time in history,” says Jean-Marie Le Gall, General Manager of Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris.
