Pullman Hotels and Resorts recently appointed Stefan Lourens as GM at Pullman Cape Town. This is the first property in South Africa under the Pullman brand from Accor.
Lourens brings more than 30 years of hospitality experience to the Pullman Cape Town team, with a proven track record across local and international brands in the Middle East and Africa.
Lourens was GM of Four Points by Sheraton Riyadh Khaldia, Sheraton Pretoria, and, most recently, was GM of the Radisson Hotel and Convention Centre at OR Tambo in Johannesburg.
His goal is to establish Pullman Cape Town as a flagship destination at the heart of the city, and to lead the hotel’s team to create exceptional experiences that capture the beauty of the country and the inspirational energy of the Pullman brand.
Lourens said: “It is a very special and unique opportunity to be the General Manager of the first Pullman hotel in South Africa. It brings a new era of style to a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and both the brand energy and its values resonate deeply with me.”
