Andrea Scherz :
Today, I am very honored to take on this position of President. Even during the pandemic, LHW has remained very active. We have developed a series of new initiatives and new services to ensure the success and good positioning of our members in the market. In the years to come, the demand for independent and luxury hotels will only increase, and our community is ready to respond to this moment with our exceptional collection. I look forward to continuing on this successful path with LHW's strong management team and my capable colleagues on the Board. Together, we'll ensure LHW is the only choice for independent luxury hotels and travelers for a long time to come.
