Going from an apprentice in Innsbruck to becoming a luxury hotel director in Delhi

The Five Star Hotel Imperial New Delhi, founded in 1936, has a long history dating back to the British colonial era. Notable figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and Lord Mountbatten are said to have met at the hotel to discuss the partition of the Indian subcontinent. After India’s independence in 1947, the hotel became a significant meeting place for diplomats, politicians, and business people from around the world, as well as a popular choice for film stars.

India is currently experiencing an influx of foreign tourists with more than 6 million visiting the country annually for holidays. The tourism industry is expected to generate substantial revenue with estimates indicating a growth in foreign tourists to 30.5 million and total industry revenue of 31.4 billion euros by 2028. Currently, tourism accounts for only 1 percent of the country’s gross domestic product.
