Richard Leuenberger will be re-joining the Badrutt’s Palace team following his role as Director of Food & Beverage five years ago.

Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is delighted to announce two new senior staff appointments ahead of this coming winter season. Richard Leuenberger will join the iconic hotel as General Manager, tasked with continuing the Grande Dame’s principles of tradition and innovation. Yves Gardiol, will take on the role of CEO, following 12 years as General Manager.

Leuenberger subsequently moved to his current position as Area Director of Operations, Asia Pacific for the Ritz Carlton.

Commenting on his new appointment, Leuenberger says “I am very excited to be returning to Switzerland and to the Badrutt’s Palace family. I am looking forward to re-immersing myself into the day to day management of this iconic hotel, and upholding the exemplary guest experience, for which is renowned”.
