  • Published by Vedat

Bonaventure Resort & Spa, the newest addition to Benchmark Hospitality International’s family of hotels, welcomes Jim Mauer as the new general manager.

Jim-MauerMauer, an established hospitality veteran in the Broward County community, will oversee the resort’s upcoming multi-million dollar renovation in addition to hotel operations, employee management and sales.

“I am very pleased to welcome Jim at Benchmark’s leadership team at Bonaventure Resort & Spa,” said Greg Champion, Benchmark’s chief operating officer. “Having spent a number of years within the Fort Lauderdale market, he comes to his new role with vast market intelligence, as well as key contacts that will help make a difference in Bonaventure’s business as we position the property as an independent entity.”

Mauer was most recently general manager of Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With Marriott for more than two decades, Mauer held senior management positions at a number of properties including Cleveland Marriott Downtown, Livonia Marriott and Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center, just to name a few. An active community member, Mauer is a board member of the Orange Bowl Committee and Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association as well as a member of the Fort Lauderdale Beach Council.

“I’m thrilled to have this unique opportunity to create something special at Bonaventure Resort & Spa as it goes through its transformation,” said Mauer. “We have a wonderful team in place and I look forward to making our vision for the resort a reality.”

Situated in the heart of the affluent neighborhood of Weston, Florida, Bonaventure Resort & Spa delivers an unparalleled resort experience that offers guests well-appointed accommodations, gourmet culinary options and a world-class spa. The AAA Four Diamond Resort, which became part of Benchmark Hospitality International’s portfolio of hotels and resorts in September 2012, features 500 spacious guestrooms and suites, four swimming pools, fitness center, full service spa and multiple dining options, including the acclaimed AAA Four Diamond Ireland’s Steakhouse.
