Guiseppe Napoli joins the Lowry Hotel as its new F&B manager
He joins from Manchester’s Hilton Hotel and brings with him 17 years of international experience which includes work in Italy, New York and China, where he won the IHG hotel group manager of the year award for mainland China.
His appointment comes at a time when the hotel is welcoming increased numbers of foreign guests including those from the Middle East and China, particularly after publicity about the visit of Chinese Premier Xi last year.
“You need to be very adaptable,” says Giuseppe (pictured). “The new generations of Chinese guest have very high standards and I know what we must do to meet their expectations.”
Before arriving in Manchester in 2015 he was with the global Starwood group for which he ran the food and drink operations for major hotels in Russia, Ethiopia and Azerbaijan.
Giuseppe will be working with The Lowry’s executive chef Andrew Green to run the two AA Rosette River Bar and Restaurant.
He is combining his new role at the Lowry Hotel with study for a MBA in International Hospitality and Service Industries Management at the Glion Institute in Switzerland.
