carathotels proudly present – part one: Anika Deblin
Anika Deblin worked as head of reservations management at carathotel Düsseldorf for a total of four years. In May 2015, she took over as general manager and in January 2016, she was appointed managing director of the hotel, which is located right at the heart of the city. In today’s blog entry, we would like to introduce you to this lively 30-year old member of our team:
Describe yourself in three words:
Courageous, headstrong, vivacious
What was the most memorable moment in your career so far?
My new challenge of working as general manager, which presented itself quite suddenly to me.
What do you cherish most about your daily work routine?
The teamwork I witness in our hotel as well as unexpected new challenges every day. I appreciate meeting the most different kinds of people and making their stay at carathotel Düsseldorf City as pleasant as possible.
What do you expect to be your biggest professional and personal challenges in 2016?
The biggest job-related challenges will certainly be the pre-opening phase of our new hotel located in Düsseldorf’s Berliner Allee as well as proving myself worthy of the managing director position. In my personal life, I imagine that building “my own home” will certainly be a venture into the unknown.
What do you love most about Düsseldorf? Can you provide a hot insider tip for the city?
Düsseldorf is an amazing city with many different faces. Due to its numerous big events, the city is constantly changing with new people pouring in every day. It might not be much of an insider tip, but for those who like to dine out and love fish, the Meerbar in Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen is the perfect spot.
Dear Anika, we wish you an exciting and highly successful year of 2016!
