SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – November 4, 2016 – El San Juan Hotel is pleased to announce Stefan Huber’s appointment as Managing Director & General Manager of the Isla Verde beach hotel which, under his direction, will reopen its doors in early 2017 following a multimillion dollar, property-wide renovation.
A seasoned hospitality veteran, Huber returns to the El San Juan Hotel, where he served as Director of Housekeeping from 1985 to 1987. Huber refined his skills at the Ocean Reef Club, The Fairmont Dallas, The Inn & Spa at Loretto, and most recently, the InterContinental Dallas.
“Stefan’s exemplary management acumen, proven knowledge of the luxury and lifestyle hospitality markets, and longstanding relationship with the El San Juan Hotel will bring local know how and world class operations to the property during this momentous time,” said Andro Nodarse-León of León Mayer & Co., one of the owners and asset manager of the property, “We’re thrilled to welcome him back to the hotel.”
