NYC] Taj Hotels / The Pierre: Associate Director of Sales

Historical icon The Pierre hotel, a triumph of Georgian architecture, opened in 1930 to spectacular fanfare.  Pioneered by Charles Pierre Casalasco, alongside Wall Street financiers Otto Kahn, E.F. Hutton and Walter P. Chrysler, this luxurious tower catered to New York’s social elite. Casalasco envisioned “the atmosphere of a private club or residence,” characterized by “simplicity and refinement.” [1]

In 2005, Taj Hotels and Resorts was selected to carry on The Pierre’s legacy.  After an impressive renovation and restoration, this luxurious hotel enjoys greater success than ever. International dignitaries, heads of state, world-renowned journalists and literary icons frequent The Pierre when they visit New York City.

Each room and event space has a distinguished point of view. The Rotunda, pictured above, is home to Edward Melcarth’s Neo-Renaissance tromp l’oeil murals. The Wedgwood Room features charming pastels with demure sophistication, and The Cotillion Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning panoramas overlooking Central Park.  If you’re searching for that perfect setting to host your next event, The Pierre delivers an elegant, unforgettable experience.

[CA] Carmel Valley Ranch: Hotel General Manager

Kick up your feet and turn off your phone, with a welcome escape from the city life. Deep in the heart of the Santa Lucia Mountains, comes the soft glow of candle light from Carmel Valley Ranch.

A short trip from Monterey and Santa Cruz, you can feel miles away in your own backyard. Cozy up to a crackling campfire, dip your toes in a crystal pool, and breathe a sigh of relief in the treetop spa.  Golfers can tour a championship course with stunning views of the hillside, and hikers can strap on their mountain boots to let themselves get lost for a while.

The Alfus Group is proud to contribute to their success. Their General Manager was placed by our recruiters in April, 2012. We look forward to seeing continued success of this lovely coastal resort.
