After studying hotel management in Paris, Vincent started his career with Le Meridien Hotels and Resorts and is no stranger to the Virgin family having worked at La Residencia 12 years ago when it was part of Virgin Hotels then more recently working at Kasbah Tamadot as Deputy General Manager.
Kathryn has been part of the Virgin family for 7 years having worked at other Virgin Limited Edition properties with her most recent role at The Lodge in Verbier where she was Front of House Manager. Kathryn's role is to assist Vincent in the day to day management of Kasbah Tamadot.
Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition commented: "We are extremely happy to welcome back Vincent and this time into the role of General Manager. Kathryn has been with us for some time and did a fantastic job at The Lodge and so we're thrilled she's accepted the role of Assistant General Manager at Kasbah Tamadot.
"We are confident that both Vincent and Kathryn will fit in very well with the rest of the team; they both have the passion, enthusiasm and understanding of the Virgin Limited Edition philosophy to ensure Kasbah Tamadot continues the tradition of warm Berber hospitality in the High Atlas Mountains."
