The collection has also expanded roles for a handful of employees who have been with the company for many years – all of whom will shift their efforts from North America initiatives toward a worldwide direction. Formerly the vice president of sales and marketing, Armando Chomat has been promoted to executive vice president, having been with the company since 2007. Taking his place will be Rienk de Jong, who has been with Karisma Hotels & Resorts for more than 10 years and formerly managed worldwide sales for the company. Alejandro Perez, who celebrates his seven-year tenure at Karisma, will now be sales manager of groups & niche markets. Rafael Feliz Jr. has been with the company for more than three years and will now be senior corporate brand manager. As Karisma continues to expand and bolster its digital presence, Nadja Dimitrijevic has been promoted to senior e-commerce manager and Anabel Sanchez to senior marketing manager. Both have worked at the company for more than two years.

“We are grateful to have experienced record growth over the past year,” Chomat said in a statement. “Over the next two years, Karisma Hotels & Resorts will invest upwards of $125 million to expand across Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, with new offices opening worldwide.”
