Prior to his tenure at Sofitel, he served with Marriott International as Area Vice President in Europe, based in London. Gaymer-Jones began his career with classical training in hotels in Switzerland and has worked all over the world in senior hotel management positions. He is based in the newly created Panorama Hospitality Management Company headquarters in Miami, Florida.
