The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi appointed a new executive assistant manager this month, hiring Julie Marie-Anne Bruley to head up its rooms division.

Bruleys post at the Metropole comes after a two-year sabbatical during which she achieved her Executive MBA from the European School ESCP. She complemented those studies with additional coursework at the University of Texas in Austin and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Prior to these studies, she most recently worked from 2006 as director of operations at Htel Fouquet's Barrire, a 107-room hotel in Paris. Prior to that appointment, Bruley spent several years at the Conrad Bangkok, a 392-room property in the Thai capital, and did a stint the Sukhothai Bangkok hotel as well.

Were continuing to note higher and higher expectations for a stay at the Metropole. Which is a great thing, said Kai Speth, the Metropoles general manager. For every new plateau we achieve, our guests have an eye on the next plateau. Julie, and her management of our rooms, will be part of our attempt to set new and higher benchmarks for the guest experience.

A native of France, Bruley started her career in Paris in 1997 and moved on to London before her first trip to Asia. She speaks French, English, some Spanish and some Thai.
