Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino announced the appointment of Hans-Georg Roehrbein as general manager of the 357-room resort, which recently completed a multimillion-dollar renovation.
Roehrbein most recently served as general manager of the Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino in Egypt, where he oversaw the operation of this more than 1,000-room hotel, with 14 food and beverage outlets, and more than 1,600 team members.
Originally from Germany, Roehrbein is a more than 30-year hospitality industry veteran who started his career as a Sous-Chef at the Miami Airport Marriott hotel in Florida. Over the course of more than three decades, Roehrbein developed his skills within the Marriott organization. His first 10 years focused on food and beverage operations at hotels in key U.S. cities and Bermuda, while the latter 20 plus years saw Roehrbein acting in general manager and resident manager roles across India, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Egypt and even Aruba, where he opened the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino and acted as resident manager for three years.
Roehrbein brings an exceptional operations and food and beverage background, as well as a proven track record for driving guest and team member engagement, while ensuring positive, proactive owner relations.
Given his previous stint in Aruba, he is familiar with the destination and excited about returning to take on the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino repositioning.
Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino offers 24,000 square feet of outdoor event space as well as 15,000-square feet of indoor meeting facilities, including the 8,100-square-foot grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 900 guests.
