Jörg Meile

General Manager, Paris Marriott Champs Elysees

Paris, France

Le savoir vivre

Jörg, who was born in Peru and lived in several South American countries is now at home in romantic Paris. After graduating from SHL in 1992, Jörg quickly gained a foothold in the international hotel chain business. However, he prefers to be a guest in small, privately run hotels. It is there, in unique surroundings and at home, that the General Manager recovers from his lively everyday life. "Cooking together with my wife is pure relaxation for me," says Jörg. Preferably with fresh, local products from the market. And, of course, French white wine and cheese are also a must. Bon appetit!
