Sanna GEHRKE, General Manager

Sanna Gehrke puts her suitcases in France in 1996, graduate but unemployed. Accepting various positions of waitress governess, she had to get used to a rigorous less pronounced than Finlance, "where a word is formed in the wake".

The first upheaval of her career took place with the passage under the Accor brand hotel in Nice where she was reponsable of bookings. This change involves the implementation of all the Accor system, with the debut of the booking online. Her origins facilitate the signing of contracts with the Finnish tour operators.

After more than 5 years in the Mercure Grimaldi, Sanna wants new experiences. So when we propose her a mysterious mission in an establishment in Cannes between Christmas and New Year, she accepted.The Radisson Montfleury must pass under Novotel brand on 1st January 2004 but employees are not informed.

Her origins were an essential quality in the context of this transformation. Indeed, the hotel was mostly frequented by Scandinavian customers and it took the switch once the change made.

The taste of the change led to the opening of an independent 4 * hotel in Cannes. In October 2013, she became Assitant Manager of Montaigne & Spa and anticipates sales, recruitment and hotel purchases during its closure for renovation.

After more than 10 years in Cannes, she come back in Nice. A meeting allows her to meet her latest challenge: integrating NEHO group and become general manager of La Malmaison Nice ****...
