|As of today (11 September 2006), Stefano Gegnacorsi is the new
General Manager of Rocco Forte’s Hotel Savoy in Florence. Stefano
has been General Manager of the award-winning Palazzo Sasso on the Amalfi
Coast for the last five years, but previously worked for Rocco Forte’s
Hotel de Russie in Rome as Hotel Manager. Hotel Savoy is Florence’s
finest five-star destination, overlooking the historic Piazza della Repubblica
and ideally placed for the city’s many fashion houses, museums and galleries.
Davide Bertilaccio, the outgoing General Manager of Hotel Savoy,
is moving to Geneva to assume the role of General Manager at Rocco Forte’s
Le Richemond. Davide brings with him nearly 20 years of luxury hotel
experience, including the last five as General Manager of Hotel Savoy.
Currently undergoing extensive refurbishment, Le Richemond, located in
the heart of Geneva, will re-open in May 2007 bringing a new level of sophistication
to the Swiss city.
Rocco Forte Hotels was established in 1996 to create a collection of
luxury hotels in Europe. The hotels have individual styles, with each hotel
reflecting its nationality and location. The collection is linked together
under the Rocco Forte Hotels brand, which guarantees attention to detail,
quality and service delivery.
