Welcoming our final judge to the panel for the Asia competition, we are pleased to introduce Michel Lamunière. After graduating with a MBA in business from ESADE, Barcelona, Michel began his career at Nestlé’s marketing and sales departments in China and Hong Kong. In 2011, he returned home to Switzerland to work for the headquarters of the Edipresse Group, where he rose to the position of Vice President. After several years nurturing the company’s luxury media and digital business, he was tasked to lead the Asian arm of the Edipresse Group, which precipitated a move back to the region. Currently based in Hong Kong, Michel serves as Chairman and CEO of Edipresse Media Asia, where he focuses on strengthening the regional presence of Asia Tatler as well as transforming the business via key digital investments. We look forward to having him on board to bring his breadth of expertise, knowledge and experience to The Hotelier Awards platform.
