He has worked in the US at The Setai on Miami Beach and at the Delamar Greenwich Harbor in Connecticut, as well as for Langham in Hong Kong. His most recent role was as General Manager of The Legian & The Club at The Legian Bali, where he led a team that achieved several first-class awards and recognitions.

“I’ve had the great pleasure to work with Kevin in the past,” says Hans Jörg Meier, Chief Operating Officer of COMO Hotels and Resorts. “I believe his expertise and broad international experience will be invaluable to COMO as we continue to distinguish ourselves as a global hospitality company with distinctive brand.”
