As construction of the first GHM-managed hotel in China nears completion, general manager Giulio DAlberto is putting the finishing touches on his first move overseas.

The 47-year-old Italian, who has worked exclusively in Italy since 1999, began unpacking his suitcase on 27 June after being hired to lead The Chedi Club Suzhou into market.

While DAlbertos surroundings are different, his employer is familiar. In 2007, the economics expert (he has a PhD in the subject) was appointed director of finance for the property formerly known as The Chedi Milan, which was then managed by GHM.

DAlberto comes to Suzhou at a time when the foundation is being laid figuratively, at least for a hotel unlike any other in GHMs ever-expanding portfolio.

When open in early 2013, the 36-room Chedi Club Suzhou will occupy three floors of the citys tallest complex the all-glass Global 188 towers and feature a destination rooftop restaurant, a health club and a spa replete with 12 treatment rooms, including a reflexology salon.

Global 188 is located in downtown Suzhou with panoramic views of the central business district and water features - Jin Ji Lake, the Yangtze River and various canals.

The city is 20 minutes by high-speed train from Shanghai and renowned for its classical gardens, which collectively own UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
