Andrew Jansson appointed as Cluster General Manager for Centara’s upcoming 2 Maldives resorts

Centara Hotels & Resorts has announced the appointment of Andrew Jansson as the Cluster General Manager of the soon-to-be opened Centara Mirage Lagoon Maldives and Centara Grand Lagoon Maldives. This strategic designation reflects Centara’s commitment to expanding its leadership team and driving growth at its flagship properties around the world.

With nearly 30 years as a seasoned hospitality professional, Andrew Jansson has held leadership roles in 14 countries with renowned hotel chains such as Hyatt and Shangri-La. This appointment marks Jansson’s fourth resort management position in the Maldives, where he will oversee the pre-opening and strategic development of Centara Grand Lagoon Maldives and Centara Mirage Lagoon Maldives. His knowledge of the local market will be crucial in establishing the strategic and operational objectives for these properties and further establishing Centara’s expansion in the Maldives, adding to the two existing properties currently in operation there.

“I am thrilled to be part of Centara and to return to the Maldives for this exciting project. I look forward to leveraging my experience and insights to contribute to the success of these new properties and enhance Centara’s presence in the region,” said Jansson.

The hiring of Jansson as well as Neil Li joining as the General Manager of Centara Reserve Samui are central to Centara’s broader strategy of strengthening its global market position and growth across its flagship properties. Both leaders are expected to play pivotal roles in achieving Centara’s long-term goals by implementing innovative strategies, optimising operations, and delivering unparalleled guest experiences.

Michael Henssler, COO of Centara Hotels & Resorts, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Neil and Andrew to the Centara family. Their diverse backgrounds and proven leadership within the luxury sector will be invaluable as we continue to expand our footprint and service offerings. These appointments underscore our commitment to attracting top talent to drive success and deliver exceptional value to our guests.”
