(New York, NY - April 13, 2007)    Corinthia Hotels recently appointed a new General Manager, Sylvain Chauvet, for the four-star Corinthia Atlantic Hotel in Banjul, The Gambia, West Africa. 
Mr. Chauvet brings with him almost ten years of travel industry experience in Africa, having just come from Zanzibar, Tanzania where he was General Manager at Karafuu, a five-star beach resort, for five years. Prior to that he spent four years as Director and Operations Manager for Tanganyika Wildlife Safari Company in Arusha, Tanzania. Mr. Chauvet speaks Swahili, French, English and Spanish.
The Corinthia Atlantic Hotel is located along the Atlantic Ocean coastline of The Gambia,an English speaking country. The property is just minutes from the country's capital center of Banjul.

The recently refurbished four-star hotel, with over 200 rooms and suites, has a nightclub, five bars and three fine dining restaurants and a casual buffet on the premises. 
According to Mr. Chauvet, "It is our staff, who reflect the special 'spirit of Corinthia,' that distinguishes the Corinthia Atlantic Hotel from other properties in Banjul. I am pleased with the comments I receive on a daily basis from our guests about the friendliness of our hotel staff. This past March, our customer survey form reflected this with a 97% guest satisfaction rate. At Corinthia, staff training focuses on team work and supporting each other, which then has a positive impact on how they interact with the guests."
