Karisma Looks to Further Global Expansion


Karisma Hotels & Resorts, which owns and manages properties across Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe, has announced further global expansion plans, encompassing a projected growth model to own and operate 30 resorts around the world by 2020.

As the company continues to expand worldwide with offices in Miami, Cancún, Belgrade, Bogotá, Mexico City, London, Toronto and Quebec, key executive personnel have been promoted to lead the charge of sales, marketing and operations from a vast global perspective. Within the next year, Karisma Hotels & Resorts will introduce its presence in Argentina, Peru, Chile, Brazil and New York City.

Formerly the vice-president of sales and marketing, Armando Chomat has been promoted to executive vice-president, having been with the company since 2007. Taking his place will be Rienk de Jong, who has been with Karisma for more than 10 years and formerly managed worldwide sales for the company.

“We are grateful to have experienced record growth over the past year thanks to our incredible team,” said Chomat. “Over the next two years, Karisma Hotels & Resorts will invest upwards of $125 million to expand across Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, with new offices opening worldwide. We have never been more excited for the future of this company or proud of our hard-working team.”
