Pierre Jochem will begin his position at the property on September 1, 2013, succeeding Didier Picquot. Mohamed Rabie Khlie, General Manager of the Moroccan National Railways Office and Chairman of the Board of Directors of La Mamounia, thanked and congratulated Didier Picquot for his professionalism and the excellent work he has accomplished since his arrival in May 2008.
“The numerous national and international distinctions awarded by prestigious institutions such as Conde Nast Traveler, Travel & Leisure and Tatler since the reopening of the mythical palace on September 29, 2009 or just recently the National Human Resources Award of the “AGEF” reflect and confirm the outstanding and excellent work performed by Didier Picquot and his team during his tenure,” said Khlie.
Didier Picquot has positioned La Mamounia as the Moroccan flagship of the hospitality industry and has continued the hotel’s legacy of one of the great names among international hotels. The hotel proudly welcomes Pierre Jochem to the team and is thrilled to announce his arrival.
