JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa names Enrique Tasende as General Manager, just in time for the launch of the 2016 season. Tasende, who has worked for the Marriott brand for nearly 15 years, brings a wealth of experience in delivering outstanding customer service and unprecedented revenue increases.

Throughout his successful career, Tasende has excelled in operational management, increasing profit margins and overall satisfaction rates at each of his previous resorts. Through his superior leadership skills and record-breaking results, he has been recognized with a number of industry awards including the General Manager Financial Excellence Award (CALA Region 2013), the Hotel of the Year Award (CALA Region 2014) and the Mustang Award for Innovation (CALA Region 2014).

"I am sincerely looking forward to taking JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa to the next level - to making it a culinary destination in its own right, to involving the local community and to helping it become an iconic hotel in Venice," Tasende said.

His exceptional track record and comprehensive training make Tasende the ideal candidate to continue the success of JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa into its second year and beyond.

Tasende continued, "My hotel management philosophy is simple, 'Begin and end with the guests' experience. I encourage my team to go into work each day with that perspective at the forefront of their minds and to ensure that each guest's time with us is unique and memorable. This means staying current with industry trends; it means believing that an incredible culinary experience is a vital aspect of the guest journey; it means trusting and encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and innovation. Finally, it means acknowledging the valuable lessons that can be taken from those outside of the hospitality industry."
