Just 2 days after classes started, the 32 students in the Luxury Goods Management program from Vatel Paris were treated to a sneak preview visit of the most awaited Parisian hotel in the past few years. The Peninsula Paris, that opened on August 1st, 2014, has 200 luxury rooms including  34 suites, 6 restaurants, a 19,000 square foot spa and a 65 foot long pool. Quite an honor, as Vatel was the first school to have been invited to visit the hotel and meet its managerial team.

Fifth year students were hosted by Julie Andry, the Learning & Development Manager, Sylvie Quintin, the HR Manager and Nicolas Tessier, the Assistant HR Manager. Nicolas is a Vatel 2005 alumnus and he told us how he and his team hired the 600 or so hotel employees in his Success Story.

Eighteen of the 32 students met with Jean-Stephane Hallard, the Peninsula’s CFO and a regular speaker at Vatel, Paris. The other 14 students came from Vatel Lyon, Nime and Bordeaux and chose to do their last year at Vatel Paris, the only School amongst the 26 in the Group, giving this Specialization. They also saw many Vateliens who were working in the hotel and met the entire managerial team, who took the time to answer the questions they had on how the hotel was managed, its revenue management, communication related to the launch, HR management, etc.  

 After a presentation of the hotel and the Peninsula Group, students visited the different departments in the hotel and listened to presentations by:

  • Nicolas Beliard, the General Manager
  • Vincent Pimont, the Hotel Manger
  • Thomas Vaucouleur de Ville D’Avray, the Assistant Restaurant Manager
  • Jean-Stephane Hallard, the Administrative and Financial Manager
  • Isabelle Bouvier, the Marketing Manager
  • Sylvie Quintin, the Human Resources Manager
  • Maude Obrist, the Front Desk, Conciergerie, Executive Assistant and Porter-Luggage Services Manager
  • Michele Cosma, the Special Events Manager
  • Christophe Wong, Head of the gourmet restaurant Lili

At the end of the day, all the students went back to school, without having forgotten to leave a few resumes for their final internship, which will be starting in January, 2015.
