Marriott International has appointed Peter Minatsis as the general manager of Le Méridien Melbourne.
Minatsis will lead the team as the 235-room hotel prepares for opening in early 2023.
“I am delighted to welcome Peter Minatsis to lead the re-introduction of the distinctive premium Le Méridien brand to the Australian market,” said Sean Hunt, Marriott’s local boss.
“Peter is a highly experienced hotelier with a proven track record for delivering outstanding results. His career at Marriott spans more than 17 years and he has worked in a range of markets including Vancouver, Sydney, Fiji and most recently at Sheraton Melbourne. He will lead the team at Le Méridien as we continue to cement our growing presence in the Melbourne market.”
Minatsis makes the move to Le Méridien Melbourne following a five-year tenure at Sheraton Melbourne.
“I look forward to building a team that will foster my vision to create a destination for Guests and Associates that enables imagination and discovery whilst respecting the history of the hotel’s location,” said Minatsis.
