Peter Pusnik to address new challenges
Peter Pusnik, general manager since 2009 of the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski Hamburg and director of its operating company, the Hotel Atlantic Hamburg Betriebsgesellschaft mbh, will, after more than eight years of service, be leaving the company in January 2016 at his own request.
The decision was made after careful consideration and with the mutual agreement of proprietor Dr. Bernard große Broermann and co-director Stefan Massa. Both regret but nevertheless respect Peter Pusnik’s decision – who after an equally intense and fruitful time wishes to address new professional challenges – and they appreciate his many years of tireless dedication to the five-star-superior hotel: Mr Pusnik successfully guided the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski with professional, prudent management skills for a period that included 3 years of extensive structural restoration and refurbishment during which hotel operations were ongoing and he returned the establishment to the top of Hamburg’s luxury hotel ladder. On completion of the renovation work in August 2012, Hamburg’s traditional hotel was able to shine once again in new splendour and since then has recorded continually rising booking rates and turnover and will, in all likelihood, end 2015 with it being the most successful year in its history.
“Managing the Atlantic was a job and a half,” stated Peter Pusnik. “The interplay between deep-rooted history, passionate employees and exceptional guests makes the soul of this hotel so distinctive, a constant source of new motivation and inspiration. It gives me great pleasure and pride to view the path we have taken in the past few years and where we are today.”
The timing of the disclosure of the personnel changes to the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski’s management board was agreed by all parties and leaves sufficient time for a smooth and successful succession plan to be implemented. Peter Pusnik will be leaving Hamburg but will be remaining faithful to the hotel industry. His successor who will take on the role in January 2016 will be announced in due course. The new challenges which Peter Pusnik will be addressing in the coming year will also be communicated at this time. General manager Stefan Massa and proprietor Dr. Bernard große Broermann offer their sincere thanks to Peter Pusnik and wish him the very best for a successful future.
