La Ville Hotel & Suites’ general manager, Anke Glaessing brings with her more than 10 years of regional experience, she has a firm grasp of the nuances of hotel openings, as well as managing a happy team. She told Hotelier Middle East that diversity is always present in her line of work.

Her team is an international group, split equally between male and female. She assured that she assesses applicants on their attributes rather than their gender or ethnic background.
