Earlier in Lanfranchi's career, he built up a strong knowledge base on food and beverage operations with positions at InterContinental Hotels Group properties in Muscat, London and Manila.

"In his role as general manager of the InterContinental Abu Soma, Lanfranchi proved what a valuable addition to the InterContinental Hotels Group team he was. We look forward to him achieving the same level of success at his new post in Eritrea," said Denis Johnson, vice president, sales and marketing, InterContinental Hotels Group Middle East and Africa.

Commenting on his appointment, Lanfranchi said: "As one of the most visually stunning hotels in Eritrea, I am thrilled to be the new general manager at the InterContinental Asmara."

The 170 guest room hotel, which draws the attention of passers by with its fascinating design, features a thoughtful and undemanding interior that creates a peaceful and tranquil environment. A host of leisure facilities - including an indoor and outdoor pool, health and fitness centre and beauty salon - are available along with a wide array of restaurants.
