Barcelona-based Marina Port Vell (MPV) has hired Marcel Brekelmans as managing director. A Dutchman, Brekelmans has spent many years as a project and managing director in hotel administration, with experience in branding, opening and pre-opening properties. He speaks five languages.

“The extent of Marcel’s direct experience managing some of the world’s most prestigious hotel brands makes him ideally suited to provide leadership, to develop operating budgets, to set standards for the highest level of customer relations, and, perhaps most importantly, to bring the marina and our yachting guests an unparalleled level of sophistication,” said Uri Nachoom, vice chairman of Salamanca Group.
