Sigrid Köntopp has taken over the position of Senior Director Operations IntercityHotel with effect from the start of the year. She succeeds Robert Boller, who will remain with Deutsche Hospitality as Managing Director of MAXX Hotel GmbH.
In her new capacity as Senior Director Operations at IntercityHotel GmbH, Sigrid Köntopp will be based at Corporate Office in Frankfurt, from where she will act as an interface between executive management and the hotels in respect of all operational processes. She will share the role with Thomas Knabner, who has been with the company since 1992. Both will report to Joachim Marusczyk, founding Managing Director of IntercityHotel GmbH.
Ms. Köntopp comes from the AccorHotels Group, where she held a range of management functions at various ibis Hotels over a period of almost 30 years. These have included General Manager positions in Cologne and Frankfurt. For the past ten years, she has been Vice President Operations most recently for the ibis family South and West Germany.
“We are delighted to have acquired the services of Sigrid Köntopp,” said Joachim Marusczyk. She possesses three decades of experience in the sector, both at hotel and group level. She is able to offer comprehensive expertise in all operational matters and will make a major contribution towards enhancing our processes still further. We would also like to thank Robert Boller for his great work over recent years. We are pleased that he will be involved in positioning the MAXX by Steigenberger brand in future.”
