A Swiss national with three decades of hospitality management experience, André has worked with a series of leading brands. He has also spent more than 20 years in Thailand, heading up popular hotels and resorts in Bangkok, Phuket, and Pattaya. 

Fluent in German, French, and English, André is a graduate of the prestigious Swiss hotel school, École Hôtelière de Lausanne. Having completed his management training with Mandarin Oriental, he entered the hospitality industry with Hilton, working at hotels in Hong Kong, Hawaii, and Indonesia. 

André later held senior management roles at leading Thai hotels including The Regent Bangkok, The Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel, Plaza Athénée Bangkok and Le Royal Méridien Phuket Yacht Club, prior to joining Centara in 2005 at the then Sofitel Centara Grand CentralPlaza Bangkok. He also spent time in Vietnam with the famed Sofitel Metropole Hanoi. 

“We are delighted to welcome André to Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, with his expert knowledge of the Asia Pacific region and lifetime of experience managing high-end resorts, André is the perfect person to lead this exceptional property,” said Gerard Hotelier, vice president of operations for Asia. 

“Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay is one of the island’s top international resorts with a strong reputation and loyal customer base. André’s deep passion for hospitality, impeccable attention to detail and exceptional leadership skills will ensure that all guests continue to enjoy incredible experiences in Boracay,” he said.

André’s impressive career now enters an exciting new chapter as he moves to the Philippines to become GM of Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay. Nestled in tropical gardens and with its own private beach, this stylish resort features 312 rooms and suites, seven restaurants and bars and Boracays largest multi-level pool of 3300 square meters, plus an array of upscale amenities for a wide range of guests, from honeymooners to families. 

“I am extremely excited to take on this new challenge with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. Boracay is an idyllic island destination that is already a firm favourite with domestic visitors and becoming increasingly popular with international travellers,” said Brulhart. 

“I look forward to working with the team at the resort to offer Mövenpick’s world-famous Swiss hospitality to all our guests,” he said.
