LISS Ard Estate has announced the appointment of Alexi Argyris as its new general manager.
Alexi (pictured) was born in Greece and educated in England and is a hotelier with over 22 years’ experience in the luxury industry.
In the UK he has worked in Claridge’s and Lucknam Park, and with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in Paris, California, and Saint Barts. He has come to West Cork from Greece, having been general manager of The Rooster Wellness & Lifestyle Resort.
‘My passion for hospitality is simple,’ he said. ‘It’s all about the people; from guests who visit the hotel, the employees who work there, and the partners and suppliers. I’m a big advocate of working with local businesses, as I’m a firm believer that this brings the best of people and their pride in their work.’
It was the people who attracted him to West Cork.
‘As a first timer to Ireland, my family and I are taken back by the humble and warm hospitality that everyone brings,’ he said. Away from work, Alexi and his wife, Marilu, enjoy travelling with their son Niko.
