Ocasio GM at Mövenpick Boracay
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has appointed Jose Alberto Ocasio as general manager of the Mövenpick Resort Boracay.
Scheduled to open in July, the 33-key resort is the second Mövenpick-branded property in the Philippines after the 245-room contemporary-styled Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu.
US national Ocasio started his career with Ritz-Carlton in the States, beginning in 1996 as a front desk agent/night relief manager at The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City.
He held positions at three other Ritz-Carlton hotels, including in Philadelphia and Bahrain, before leaving the company in 2009 after serving as executive assistant manager (rooms) for the brand’s Cancun property.
His first general manager assignment came at Banyan Tree Club & Spa, Seoul in 2012, followed by general manager stints at Banyan Tree Hotel and Resorts/Angsana Velavaru, the Maldives and Banyan Tree Hotel and Resorts/Angsana Laguna Phuket, Thailand.
