Dubai, June 2013. Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates has welcomed Konstantin Zeuke as the property’s new general manager. Konstantin takes over from Alejandro Bernabé, who joined the Siam Kempinski Hotel in Bangkok as general manager earlier this month.
Konstantin spent the early years of his career with Hilton and Marriott in Germany and joined Kempinski in 1998 as Assistant Front Office Manager at the Kempinski Vier Jahrezeiten in Munich, Germany. His 15-year career with Kempinski has taken him around the world from Germany, Kuwait, UAE and Egypt to Bulgaria, Slovakia and Croatia.
Prior to moving to Slovakia in November 2007, Konstantin held his first position as General Manager and successfully opened the Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena Bansko, which became the first Leading Hotel of the World in Bulgaria. In 2009 he was in charge of opening the first luxury five star hotel in Slovakia, and in June 2010, he successfully opened yet another Kempinski hotel in the capital of the Slovak republic, the Kempinski Hotel River Park Bratislava.
A graduate from Reims Management School in France, Konstantin holds a European Executive Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel Administration from the Hotel Business Vocational School in Hanover, Germany.
A German national, Konstantin is fluent in English and also speaks basic Italian and Bulgarian in addition to German.
