Wincome Group has announced the appointment of Carmine Iommazzo as the General Manager for The Westin Anaheim Resort, the under construction four-diamond hotel expected to open in late 2019. In this new role, Iommazzo will oversee all aspects of the luxurious new hotel, including its 613 stylish guestrooms, 101 suites, three restaurants, two bars including a rooftop lounge, and more than 42,000 square feet of state of the art meeting space.
Iommazzo, born and raised in Australia, fell in love with hospitality while originally studying accounting, and although he had a knack for numbers, his true passion rested in the food and service industry. He earned a diploma in 1997 at the International College of Hotel Management in Adelaide, a joint project of the Swiss Hotel Association, Le Cordon Bleu, and the Government of South Australia.
“I’m delighted to be on board leading the brand-new Westin Anaheim Resort,” said Iommazzo. “This hotel will bring a new level of luxury to the Anaheim market, and I look forward to working with the leadership of Wincome Group to position the Westin for true success.”
While studying for his degree, Iommazzo worked at Hyatt Hotels in Adelaide and Melbourne, and The Regent Hotel Sydney. Upon graduation, he joined the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas. Iommazzo has held several management positions at prestigious hotels in Hawaii and San Diego. He was named General Manager of Makena Beach and Golf Resort in Maui in 2011, and in 2013 as General Manager of The Kahala Hotel and Resort in Honolulu, a five-diamond resort operated by Landmark Hotels Group.
“With experience working at destination hotels in both Australia and Hawaii, Iommazzo has the skills and expertise to help the Westin Anaheim Resort become the prime destination for convention goers, group meetings and leisure travelers,” said Paul Sanford, Asset Manager of Wincome Group.
