Marco Truffelli sounds surprisingly wide awake despite the incredibly busy first few months as General Manager of Verdura Resort in Sicily, “I’ve been here for four months and my feet have not touched the ground!” He speaks with a passion that only true hotel managers embrace fully – it is that rare mixture of immense pride and the desire to always go further. Marco is in charge of running the luxury resort on the island just off the toe of Italy’s boot and strives to ensure guests feel part of its community.
Marco’s career spans over 28 years and includes managing and directing four and five-star hotels, resorts and hotel companies. He started his career with Trusthouse Forte, later worked at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic and was MD of The Town House Collection in Scotland. From 2014 he was GM of Borgo Egnazia in Puglia before moving to Verdura. It is an impressive track record, but Marco is not one to boast and would rather talk highly of those around him…
The new magazine is centred around the Global Independent Hotel Sector – arguably a market that has performed strongly over the last few years and shown the ability to innovate, create and adapt.
It is often that the great boutique hotels of the world and the large corporates which attract the most comment but the independent sector has just got on with the task in hand. Perspective brings all three together.
