About Us

Ferdinand von den Benken

Managing Partner

Ferdinand recognised his passion for the hotel industry early on. After graduating from high school, he joined Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts in China, where he completed a one-year management traineeship in various departments during the pre-opening phase and afterwards.

This was followed by a bachelor's degree in International Hospitality Management at the École hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland, where Ferdinand worked on his first consulting projects, including one for a Dorchester Collection hotel, in addition to various internships in leading 5-star hotels.

After his studies, Ferdinand worked in Sales & Marketing at the Regional Office in Frankfurt am Main of the renowned Badrutt's Palace Hotel in St. Moritz, among others. Due to his close ties to Switzerland, Ferdinand will manage our office in Zurich and of course also actively support us in Austria and Germany.
