About my hospitality experience, I must say that my experience goes back to 2008 when I was hired by Hospes Infinity Places in its Building & Maintenance Department. My task was started in organizing the openings of hotels recently Inaugurated. Quickly I started to put in order the renovations of the hotels with more seniority, this work entailed the reform of some rooms, lobbies, etc... My duties began with previous designs, making the interior design, furniture design, budgeting, hiring contractors, FF & E manager, construction supervision, deadlines and overspending, established hotel management strategies to lessen the inconvenience of renovation with the operation of the hotel, as these works were carried out without close the hotel.
Another function that I developed in Hospes Infiniti Places was the external relationships with consultants, contractors, suppliers, authorities for the new Hotels in project.
With the experience and knowledge gained in Hospes Infiniti Places, with which I met the whole process that involves a hospitality project, I started performing from 2010 my duties with my own company.
