Dany Lützel, General Manager, Hotel Éclat, Beijing

Early on, Dany had precise ideas of where his career would lead him: «Even before applying to the SHL programme, it had been clear to me that I wanted to be a hotel manager at the age of 30.» And, impressively, that’s exactly what he achieved. With passion and dedication, he pursued his goal and took over his first General Manager position in the Radisson Blu Hotel St. Gallen, Switzerland, at the age of… 30. In 2014, the world stage was calling: Dany left Switzerland and headed to China, where he ran the Kempinski Hotel in Chongqing City, before taking over the unique Hotel Éclat Beijing, a five-star boutique hotel that offers a rare opportunity to experience museum quality art while enjoying stylish, cool accommodation.
