Global Asset Solutions expands team, hiring Juan Manuel Gea and Jordi Izquierdo to enhance its asset management and luxury hotel advisement services.

Global Asset Solutions has added two new members to its team, as it continues to grow and evolve, advising both owners and brands in the luxury sector.

The group believes that asset management should support the full lifecycle of a property, including investment as well as operations, and has hired to support its leadership position in the market.

Last year saw Global Asset Solutions cement its standing as the largest independent asset manager in Europe, Middle East, Asia and the Pacific with the addition of a portfolio of nine hotels in the Middle East, adding spectacular hotels under the W, Ritz Carlton, JW, Intercontinental and Alila flags.

Most recently, the group has been working with Nikki Beach Global to develop a strategy for growth through the creation of an owner-friendly operating platform which can compete with upper luxury hotel brands.

Global Asset Solutions has added Juan Manuel Gea as corporate business manager and Jordi Izquierdo as hotel asset manager, bringing further depth of knowledge to its existing prowess.

Alex Sogno, CEO, Global Asset Solutions, said: “We are thrilled that demand for our services continues to build, as asset management rises in prominence. Juan and Jordi will perfectly complement our team, bringing with them fresh skills. Asset management is more than operations; to have a successful, profitable property you must also be strategic and for this, you need specialist, comprehensive knowledge and an eye to the latest trends. At Global Asset Solutions we are proud to offer an in-depth understanding of every aspect of luxury hotels; from development to F&B and technology.”

Gea joins the company from revenue management platform Beyond, where he was a senior office manager, while Izquierdo was most recently with Hyatt Hotels; at the Thompson Madrid and Hyatt Centric Madrid Gran Via, where he held the role of cluster director of revenue management as part of the pre-opening team for Thompson Madrid.

Izquierdo said: “I am thrilled to join Global Asset Solutions due to their unique dedication to asset management and hotel investment, coupled with a deep understanding of the luxury hotel sector and a commitment to the communities and markets they serve.

“I am particularly attracted by their emphasis on innovation, operational excellence, sustainability, and strategic partnerships, recognising these as essential elements for long-term success in today’s competitive landscape. I firmly believe that this is more than just a workplace; it’s a platform where one can truly make a meaningful contribution and help shape the future of luxury hospitality.’

Gea added: “I’m incredibly excited about the opportunity to join the team as the corporate business manager. Meeting Alex and Fred has been truly inspiring – their expertise is impressive and their passion for the industry is genuinely contagious. The hotel industry is a fascinating sector, and I cannot wait to join Global Asset Solutions to meet and collaborate with the rest of the incredible team.”

Global Asset Solutions’ portfolios includes amongst many others, award-winning upper luxury hotels such as the Rosewood Phnom Penh, Cambodia and the Four Seasons Madrid, Spain.
