Marco Polo Plaza Cebu recently welcomed Austrian national Michaela Priesner as resident manager of the hotel.
As an experienced hospitality professional, Priesner has filled managerial positions for a number of hospitality companies, including Kempinski Hotels, Anantara Hotels & Resorts, Rotana Hotels and Resorts, Aleenta Resorts & Spas in UAE, Austria and Thailand.
“I wanted to work again in a business hotel while still being able to visit the beach every now and then and Cebu City could offer me both. I love the warmth, the smiles, and the hospitality of this city,” Ms. Priesner said on why she chose to work with the hotel.
Priesner studied at the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute finishing with a Hospitality diploma, and started her managerial career in Embassy Suites in Sharjah, UAE. She is an experienced, outgoing, customer-focused manager with a successful history of working in the leisure, travel and tourism industry.
Priesner said she is looking forward to get to know the community and the Cebuanos. “It’s an honor to be a part of this amazing team. Marco Polo is a true landmark in Cebu City,” she added.
