This month, the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel is delighted to welcome Sven Wiltink to its St Helier hotel as the new Food and Beverage Manager.
Sven, originally from the Netherlands, takes up his role after relocating to Jersey from the Radisson Blu Hotel at Manchester Airport where he worked as Weekend Duty Manager. At just 30 years of age, Sven has over 10 years of industry experience and an impressive track record. After his very first job as a restaurant waiter in his hometown Sven successfully gained a Bachelor in Business Administration and a Masters Degree in Innovative Hospitality Management from the Maastricht Hotel Management School.
In 2007 Sven joined the Radisson Blu in Reykjavik, Iceland as a Management Trainee and in 2008 transferred to Manchester as an Assistant Restaurant and Bar Manager in the Airport Hotel working his way up to his most recent role as a Weekend Duty Manager with responsibilities for the hotel restaurants, room service and bars. His proactive and keen approach saw him being assigned the role of ‘Responsible Hotels Coordinator’. Sven has stepped into the position of Food and Beverage Manager in Jersey comfortably.
Welcoming Sven to the hotel, Thomas Stene General Manager said “We’re delighted that Sven has joined the team here at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel. With his wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as his passion for pleasing the customers, Sven will be a wonderful asset to the team in Jersey”.
Sven has settled into island life well and particularly loves the stunning beaches and views over to Elizabeth Castle from the hotel. He is passionate about football and looks forward to supporting his beloved Dutch national team during the Euro 2012 tournament this summer.
