July 2014: Cape Town’s ultimate beach hotel has a new GM.
Katherine Lewis, current GM of Protea Hotel Bloemfontein, is relocating to the Mother City where she will become GM of Protea Hotel Sea Point. Lewis takes over from long-standing GM Janneman Britz, who is transferring to Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town from next month.
While she originally trained as a chef, Lewis’ passion for hotels quickly expanded and in 1997 she obtained Diplomas in Hotel Management and Public Relations in Cape Town.
She has experience across three large international hotel groups and has also worked across South Africa, as well as in Europe.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming Katherine to Cape Town and there’s no doubt that her easy management style and excellent GUEST relations will quickly endear her to Protea Hotel Sea Point’s regular return GUESTS and attract many new ones,” says Mark Satterfield, Marriott International’s business leader in SA.
