For more than three and a half years, he continued to increase his level of responsibility across the property before moving on to open the group’s Montelucia Resort & Spa in Scottsdale as Director of Banquets. There, he gained significant knowledge, especially in rebranding, as the property eventually transitioned to KSL Management.
A former professional European “football” (soccer) athlete, Soanca still enjoys participating in local team games. He is passionate about culture and community, never settles and always finds a way to learn from every experience.
