Emanuel Berger is an active member since 1974 and together with his wife Rosmarie runs the famous Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa in Interlaken, Switzerland, since October 1970. Berger is also delegate of the governing board of the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel and of the Palace Hotel Luzern. Furthermore he is member of the governing board of the Hotel Widder Zurich, Palace Hotel Luzern and Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne. At 64 Berger won plenty of awards in the past. But this award, voted for by EHMA members, is particularly special."This time it's extremely flattering, as the jury are my peers" he says. Berger always knew he wanted a career in luxury hospitality. After attending the Ecole hotelière de Lausanne, many international work placements followed. While Berger was working at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, he was asked to take over the Victoria-Jungfrau. He accepted and in 1970, at the age of 29, became its General Manager, and... still proudly is!
